With news of this most unusual friendship spreading quickly around the world, Owen and Mzee came to be known and beloved worldwide. Many newspapers and magazine articles and photos appeared. TV programs and a documentary were made about them.
And now our story in this booklet. The art work and printing were done by prisoners in prison. In order to give the reader insight into the possible thinking of these two animals we have attributed to them thoughts and feelings related to known events. Even though giving the story a dramatic flair to make the material come alive, we have not strayed from the essential happenings of that story. The details were all true. The conversations were made up as it might have happened, all for your enjoyment.
