‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Michel Gay
Age Range: Under_5
When Zou the little Zebra wakes up early one morning he wants his parents to wake up too so he can snuggle into bed with them, but how can he wake them so that they won’t be grumpy? He decides to make them a beautiful breakfast with plenty of coffee and goes off to the kitchen. Nothing can go wrong surely?
Michel Gay’s quirky illustrations of the adorable Zou dominate every page. Children cannot fail to love and be amused by Zou’s antics as he tries so hard to make breakfast for his parents. This is a funny, heart-warming story that is perfect to share and read aloud. There are also simple messages for children about being thoughtful and doing things for their parents and others, and it also shows that in the end it is the thought that counts.
