Zebra is a hip teenager with a big ego- until one day he wakes up to find his precious stripes are gone. As Zebra learns to do good in his community, his stripes come back little by little. Zebra realizes that the most fundamental part of his identity must be built on doing good for others. This is a joyous book with visual winks on every page, thanks to the dynamic and detailed illustrations of Walter Policelli.

What a beautiful, sweet story. It is enjoyable to read & puts a smile on my face. I love that it teachers kids important life lessons, values, sense of self, kindness, selfishness & to see the world around us. I love that Zebra was helping others. Not only did it make him feel good, he was getting his stripes back.

This is such a wonderful story for children to read. This story teachers children that they shouldn't focus on their looks so much, but to focus on helping others. Ive always told my children those that help others and are kind always look the most beautiful..
What a beautiful story to share with children. Sometimes they can get carried away only thinking about themselves, but they need to realize how much better they will feel helping others.
