Book Review: Zebra on the Go by Jill Nogales & Lorraine Rocha

Book received at no charge to facilitate review.

Take your seats and get ready for the show.
And quite the show it is.
With "cameras flashing and Zebra dashing" what could go wrong?
When Zebra steps on Lion's toe, hi temper soars and mayhem ensues. 
Away Lion goes chasing Zebra through crowds of people and across busy streets with the entire circus ensemble following after them. Lion chases Zebra past the pier right onto the docking boats and follows in his inflatable speed raft. Just when Lion nearly catches Zebra's boat his inflatable raft springs a leak and a nail biting rescue takes place where the most important thing saved is friendship.

The energetic chase punctuated with frolicking rhyme create a fun read aloud that can be shared again  and again without ever growing tired. As if the story wasn't fun enough, the lively illustrations offer bonus circus acts during the chase to the most observant reader. Wild, creative and fun, what more could you want in a read aloud?

Rating: ★★★★★
