A wonderful story with an important message.
Deep in a beautiful jungle, six very different animal friends meet. Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Giraffe and Monkey are bored, but not Zebra, she is determined to have fun and starts a game ‘If I were king.’ At first, it seems harmless, but soon, the animals’ very different characters and traits begin to show.
Within the story are important messages. The reader has a wonderful opportunity to interact with the child as it learns about not only the different characteristics and traits of some wild animals, but also important life lessons such as self-awareness, understanding others and character judgement, in an easily absorbable way.
This very talented author and illustrator has produced a lovely, colourfully illustrated book which I believe will really appeal to children.
