Reviews

This is a charming story, beautifully illustrated story about the ups and downs of friendship between a zebra, a bird and an elephant, from the exciting and award-winning new talent Lovereading4kids One to entertain toddlers while offering a gentle early life lesson Time Out What I really love about this book are the illustrations, in particular the barren landscapes of the African plains. The colours of the landscapes are muted, pale and naturalistic; juxtaposed with storm-filled skies that create a striking contrast full of atmosphere Magpie That This beautifully portrayed story about the real meaning of friendship set in the African savannahs is a visual delight, particularly the range of expressions on the animals
