Author Benjamin Mee discusses the adaptation of his book We Bought a Zoo, available on Blu-ray and DVD April 3

In 2006, journalist Benjamin Mee, who was best known for his do-it-yourself columns in U.K.'s The Guardian, purchased the Dartmoor Zoological Park in Dartmoor, England. He eventually turned his tale into the non-fiction 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, adapted for the silver screen as We Bought a Zoo. This enthralling drama arrives on Blu-ray and DVD April 3.
