What is it About?

A picture book about the way a zebra is used in the food cycle for animals Africa.

My Thoughts:

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.
