A serious theme discussed in a lighthearted, illustrative way for children to easily grasp and understand it. In this story, children meet Zeke the zebra, who sees his reflection and gallops off on an adventure to learn about the color of his skin. Set in the African savanna, the story begins as Zeke wonders whether he is a black zebra with white stripes or a white zebra with black stripes. In his search for answers, his animal friends’ opinions have only left him both confused and feeling confused and inferior. Still perplexed, Zeke decides to approach his wisest friend, Matilda the elephant. With Matilda’s sensible words, Zeke soon discovers that color or physical appearance is unimportant, as long as one realizes what really matters.
