Fantastic book for 2-5 year olds. Great rythm and vocabulary. The artwork is well suited for children. Still one of my favorite books for bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet story Nov. 9 2011
By littlebird - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a really sweet book. Leo doesn't want to hunt his prey, he wants to be their friends. As he is outcast from his pride, he stays true to his inner self. He makes many friends along the way! This book really encourages not always going with the flow and being a true friend and peace maker. His pride comes around to seeing that he truly is a king. Great little story for instilling sweet values and confidence in young ones.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Giles Andreae's best June 26 2010
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Giles' books. We have most of them! Our favorites.. Giraffes Can't Dance and Rumble in the Jungle. But this one did not meet our expectations. First of all, the mother sends Leo away! What mother would ever send her child away? It doesn't make sense. Also, I don't like all of the references to death. And "biting through the skin" of the zebra. It's definitely not good for young children.
2.0 out of 5 stars Ok Book May 21 2014

The story itself is good but I did not realize I was getting a very cheap book. The binding and pages are light paper. Not great for a toddler's book!
