By ELH Browning VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I love this " how the zebra got its stripes" story. The pictures are great, and the opening double page pulls the reader right into a hot and sunny African plain. This plain is, in the story, covered with grazing animals of many shapes, all of whom are pale grey. Then one day the bravest of the animals discovers a huge cave full of glittering furs and skins, tails and other adornments and all the creatures rush to get themselves a striking new look. There are super illustrations of many brightly coloured animals with lovely coat patterns and new horns etc that they have chosen. My boys 3 & 5 also both love the poor old Rhino with his inadequate costume-making, hence his baggy skin. Meanwhile greedy Zebra is still grazing, grey...... He does reach the cave, and his wonderfully expressive eyes grow wider as he makes do with what is left, the end result producing both stripes and a giggle from my young listeners. It's not just the monkeys roaring with laughter. If you are just choosing one book from this lovely series, then I recommend this one over all the others. It's absolutely brilliant.

A great favourite in our house. Lovely story about how Greedy Zebra got his stripes. My kids want the whole series of books now and if this one is anything to go by, then they are worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greedy Zebra 20 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a resource for my classroom. The children (yr 1) really enjoyed the book and it was great stimulus for discussion mainly about what animal we would like to be and about what the world would be like if everything and everyone were the same colour. They regularly ask me to read the book again as it has become a class favourite.

My partner is from Kenya and read these books when he was a kid. I meant to buy them when we were in Karen last year but luckily I found them on Amazon! My nieces and nephews in Canada absolutely love these books. Fun to pass on a little tradition.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this for my mum as her mothers day gift as our old copy was read so much it died, she nearly cried when opening it as our whole family loves the story and the illustrations are amazing. Sadly i'm going to have to buy another copy and the one i just bought got weed on by one of our cats....the universe really doesn't want us enjoying this book
