From Publishers Weekly:

When the Columbus Zoo (Ohio) hired Hanna as director in 1978, its chief attraction was the gorilla collection, but all the animals were caged and the buildings run-down. With hard work, imagination and a genius for promotion--this man could have given P. T. Barnum lessons--Hanna revamped and revived the zoo, turning it into one of the finest in the country. Since his childhood, he has loved animals; he had a home menagerie, ran a pet shop and petting zoo, worked for a wildlife adventure outfit. Written with Stravinsky ( The Not So Great Moments in Sports ), here is a collection of exuberant stories about the Columbus Zoo: successful breeding of endangered species, animal births and deaths, escapes (the monkeys of the title went north on I-71 to Cleveland in seven months), local and national TV appearances ( Good Morning America ; Late Night with David Letterman ), safari adventures. The book will leave zoophiles and animals lovers breathless. Photos. First serial to Cosmopolitan; Troll Book Club selection; author tour.

From Library Journal:

This a lively and inspirational account of "Jungle" Jack Hanna's career. Currently director of the Columbus Zoo and a popular TV talk show guest, Hanna started at age 11 with the lowly chore of cleaning cages for a veterinarian. After college, he owned a pet store, ran a petting zoo, and oversaw a zoological garden. There are a few tales of disappointment, even tragedy, but for the most part, this is an upbeat story, and the unpredictable animal escapades are hilarious. Hanna strikes a strong message for conservation and points out the ability of animals to evoke positive responses in troubled humans. This should have wide appeal for YA and general readers.
