A hungry lioness attacks a grazing zebra on the plains of East Africa. She bites it in the throat, kills it, and she and her pride rip the carcass open and begin their meal. The story of what happens to an animal after it's killed, soft yet realistic illustration and text show how vultures swooping in to fight over scraps of meat, and cunning jackals competing with bone-crushing hyenas for a piece of the feast.
Life on the plain is a constant, dramatic struggle for survival between predator, prey, and scavenger.
Ages 6-9; parents may wish to preview, especially if they have sensitive or animal-loving children!
