The full-color illustrations and conversation balloons show the reader the things Jane saw on her adventures in Africa and what she may have been thinking as she observed animals in the wild. Krohn takes readers into the adult Goodall's life and research, describes her developing fascination with chimpanzees, and includes revealing comments about her lifelong work with the chimps. The captivating narration is followed by a double-page spread of intriguing fast facts, a helpful glossary of terms, resources for further research, and an index.
