Zebra and his friends Giraffe, Crocodile, Monkey, and Parrot are playing hide and seek in Zebra’s very stripy house. One by one each of Zebra’s guests find a place to hide, and it is up to the rest of the animals to find the one who is hiding. Parrot is under the table in the kitchen but can you find the rest of them?

Solid board pages with sturdy flaps to lift and open make this the perfect book for the curious small child.  The reader will be delighted to see how many things are decorated with stripes in Zebra’s unique home. Simple, flat illustrations in bright colors may inspire children to try their hand at creating a zebra story of their own.
