The Special Guest, Paperback Book

The Special Guest Paperback

Illustrated by Steve Smallman

Part of the Storytime series


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 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.

When clever Elephant disguises herself as Zebra, Lion also ends up very squashed and confesses all.

Zebra is truly sorry for how he treated his friend Elephant and is grateful to her for saving his life.

Part of the series Storytime. Beautifully illustrated, QED Storytime introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories.

Discussion points for parents and teachers are also included.
