Notes

Description
Noted television actress, impassioned lifelong animal welfare advocate, and author, Betty White offers intimate and funny stories about her animal friends at the zoo, enhanced by four-color photographs. This book is the passion project she has been working on for more than a decade; a love letter to zoos and to the animals in them, from a woman who admits she likes animals better than humans ("They're unconditionally loving!"). In her inimitable voice, she takes us on a private tour of her favorite animals and her friendships with them, from Gita the elephant, whom she used to take for walks before the zoo opened; to Kelly the massive silverback gorilla, whom she has known since his birth in 1987. From giraffes to lizards to koalas, readers witness the variety of animals through her eyes, and in her own words.
