" This is a nice book about friendship. The Africa setting was nice, though it seemed a bit more Tarzan Africa than Maasai in Tanzania. " said.

" One of my favorite Bill Peet books, and it still holds up even today! " said.

" Bill Peet is a wonderful author. I loved every book of his that I could lay my hands on. He always seemed to teach a lesson w/out being preachy. This is a good one about prejudice & friendship. " said.

" My 8 year old nephew, Jonah, is really into Bill Peet at the moment. The kid stocks up every day on more books to read. So love that. He was over for a play date and brought three for us to read. These short stories are quite fun, and I do love the illustrations. " said.

" The story of an aging lion that is ashamed after saving a vulture from being killed. But might that act of kindness save his life? Bill Peet's pictures are great, and the story is fun if fairly predictable.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers. " said.

" Old lion Eli thinks little of the Vera the vulture whom he rescued from a jackal. He thinks even less of her grateful friends. Fed up with their fondness, he shoos them off with insults. Enter the hunting Zoobangas. Will Eli accept Vera's offer of help? Will the help be enough to save Eli from spears?Simple story telling. Engaging facial expressions on this book authored and illustrated by Bill Peet. " said.

" This is a really fun one to read. It's fun to make a screechy vulture voice and a cranky lion voice. We really had a good laugh while reading it. Connects well with our friendship unit. Good vocabulary discussions too. I feel like we should do an author study some time on Bill Peet. We've read a number of his books this year and today when I showed this one my students commented that this is probably going to be a good one since it's by Bill Peet. " said.

" I love the combination of beautiful crayon-like illustrations and Peet's language play. These books are 25 years old, and it is interesting to see how morality in children's books has changed. Classics like these seem more nuanced to me. " said.
