Great Book: We Bought a Zoo

I just finished a great book, We Bought a Zoo: The Amazing True Story of a Young Family , a Broken Down Zoo and the 200 Wild Animals that Change Their Lives Forever by Benjamin Mee.
Benjamin, his wife Katherine, their 2 young children and members of Ben's family buy a zoo in the countryside of England and turn it into a family business. Their story has it all, triumph over adversity, love, charming animals, tragedy and hope. It's a must read.
Hopefully during my studies in England next year I will be able to visit their zoo, the Dartmoor Zoological Park and see some of their wonderful animals and meet these inspiring people.
For more information on the zoo, check out their website:
