Koko’s Kitten (paperback)

by Dr. Penny Patterson, photos by Dr. Ron Cohn (1985)

This award-winning classic tells the real-life story of Koko the gorilla and her love for a tailless tabby she named “All-Ball”.  It shares her profound grief when All-Ball died—even photos of tailless kittens made her sad. But the story ends on a heartwarming, happy note that will make the reader smile. For children of all ages.
