When you're brand spanking new in the world, and you live in a wild place, there's a lot you need to know, especially when danger is lurking. To start with, for Little Zeb, being wet behind the ears proves more of a help than a hindrance, but he soon has to learn what's gorgeous and what's not.

Little Zeb, according to his mother, is tip-top and gorgeous. And much like any toddler just starting to grasp language, he has begun repeating words he hears without understanding their meaning. Fortunately for Little Zeb, the lion he meets is more than flattered to be called gorgeous--until he remembers how hungry he is. . . . Luckily, Big Zeb quickly intervenes, and thus begin language lessons for Little Zeb, the first of which is "not gorgeous." Soon Little Zeb is trying out his new vocabulary, which now includes "danger," "vamoooose!" and "Stick with me, baby, and you'll be all right!" Illustrated in bright colors and told in straightforward, simple text, this is a perfect tale for toddlers and their parents, who will surely recognize their own young ones in Little Zeb.From the Back Cover:
