Alan loves animals, but the great cat house at the Bronx Zoo makes him sad. Why are they all alone in empty cages? Are they being punished? More than anything, he wants to be their champion—their voice—but he stutters uncontrollably.

Except when he talks to animals…

Then he is fluent.

Follow the life of the manTime Magazinecalls, "the Indiana Jones of wildlife conservation"as he searches for his voice and fulfills a promise to speak for animals, and people, who cannot speak for themselves. This real-life story with tender illustrations by Catia Chien explores truths not defined by the spoken word.


As a child, Alan Rabinowitz stuttered uncontrollably--except when he spoke to animals, then he was fluent. Follow the world-renowned wild cat conservationist Dr. Rabinowitz's remarkable life as he finds a voice to speak for those who can't speak for themselves.

This book made me cry tears of sympathy, and joy. You and I are this boy; You and I are this jaguar.

This true story of a promise kept is for everyone – no matter what age – to read and share.
—Sy Montgomery, Sibert Medal Winner forKakapo Rescue: Saving the World’s Strangest Parrot

A beautiful book that will inspire stutterers to succeed and make a positive difference in the world.
