Book Review of After the Kill (Junior Library Guild Selection (Charlesbridge Paper))

After the Kill (Junior Library Guild Selection (Charlesbridge Paper))


Definitely not a book for the squeamish child or adult. I think about The Lion King and the song Circle of Life. While that is a happy song this may not be the happiest topic but it is a fact of life. Lion kill zebras for food and other animals eventually share this food.

While I am not a fan of watching the animal planet channel show about predators killing other animals I respect that they have to to live and this book is still an educational book for children.

The art is pretty graphic and I would not recommend it for smaller children. Maybe for about the age of 7 and up depending on the child. You would need a child mature enough to understand and respect the nature of animals.
