Graphic and disturbingly illustrated account of a lioness killing a zebra and devouring it, followed by vultures, hyenas, and jackals, who all benefit from the kill, all the way to the tiny meat-eating beetles who pick the zebra bones clean. This is an interesting book in that it looks at a part of the “circle of life” seldom covered in children’s picture books, but I found the tone to be off-putting. I really don’t think even a hungry lioness is thinking “Mmmm---zebra!” for example.
