A Wish for Koko

Next Page  >>


The heartwarming story of hope, about a young girl whose love for a gorilla named Koko became a call to action for the future of all gorillas, through her desire to communicate with them.

It is brought to life by Stella Machado, her family, teacher, and classmates at La Honda Elementary school in Woodside, California (see page 1) — a stone’s throw from where Koko and Penny lived their extraordinary lives together.
