Review After The Kill by Darrin Lunde

Author: Darrin Lunde
Genre: Childrens Book, Picture Book
Publisher: Charlesbridge Publishing
Received: From Publicist for Review
Release Date: July 2011
What is it About?
A picture book about the way a zebra is used in the food cycle for animals Africa.
Definitely not a book for the squeamish child or adult. I think about The Lion King and the song Circle of Life. While that is a happy song this may not be the happiest topic but it is a fact of life. Lion kill zebras for food and other animals eventually share this food.
While I am not a fan of watching the animal planet channel show about predators killing other animals I respect that they have to to live and this book is still an educational book for children.
The art is pretty graphic and I would not recommend it for smaller children. Maybe for about the age of 7 and up depending on the child. You would need a child mature enough to understand and respect the nature of animals.
