Pippa Wilsonabout this book: Meet Zaci. He's a shy little Zebra who is a little scared to venture out into the world in case he makes a mistake and gets embarrassed.
One day, Zaci wakes up to find his mother isn't there, so he decides to dip a toe into the sunshine and go on an adventure. He discovers that there is a whole new world away from his special tree and that life can be full of exciting and wonderful things.
Zaci the Zebra shows that sometimes that first step into the unknown can bring magical changes to your life.
I was inspired to write about Zaci as I was a very shy girl when I was at school. The thought of being noticed and picked on was terrifying to me. I learnt that if you have good friends by your side, then everything is going to be ok. The support and love friends and family can provide is second to none.
The idea of Zaci is a Zebra came from a simple picture. I was trawling images when I found some gorgeous pictures of Zebras. Zaci and friends then came to life. Zaci is an African boys name (pronounced Zashee)and to follow that theme his friends Eevie Elephant and Jabulani Giraffe were born.
An interesting fact learnt when writing this book was that Zebra's sleep standing up. There is so much to learn about the world and I'm learning constantly whilst researching the subjects I'm writing about.
I hope that not only little people, but also big people get enjoyment from reading about my shy little Zaci.
