A zebra is looking at her image in the lake. At first, she is happy with what she sees, but when she remembers a few remarks from other animals that spoke ill of her appearance, her previously beautiful body parts suddenly seem ugly, stupid, etc. So, the story can be read in one direction, but - alas! The book can also be read in the other direction, offering us a diametrically opposite story, experience, and message! The picture book, which questions the individual's self-image, with its original concept offers an excellent starting point for conversations with children. Furthermore, Marta Bartolj's illustrations masterly depict a whole range of emotions that our zebra encounters while looking in the water mirror.
