Description

Zebra can hardly contain his excitement when he receives a dinner party invite from Lion - the king of the jungle! Elephant on the other hand is more sceptical about Lion's motives. She sets out to prevent Zebra from going to the party, but Zebra thinks Elephant is jealous because she hasn't been invited! Elephant tries to keep Zebra busy - telling him to have a bath, comb his mane and touch up his stripes, and in the meantime the invitation blows across the savanna... leading Porcupine and Rhino to believe it is addressed to them. Lion is less than impressed when the wrong guests arrive at his party. He is left soggy and covered in prickles when he bounces from the bushes and tries to eat Porcupine and Rhino. When clever Elephant disguises herself as Zebra, Lion ends up very squashed and confesses all. Throughout the years, QEB has built this successful Storytime series. These charming books combine colorful illustrations with heart-warming narrative, each with its own unique message. Zebra is truly sorry for how he treated his friend Elephant and is grateful to her for saving his life.
