How True, Zazu? is a book inspired by The Lion King. It was published by Grolier Books in 1994 as part of The Lion King: Six New Adventures.

Plot

How True, Zazu? begins by introducing Kopa, the son of Simba and Nala, and Zazu, the majordomo of the Pride Lands. At the start of the book, Zazu is telling Kopa stories about his younger days, one of which involves a valuable lesson about spreading gossip. When Zazu was younger, he reported everything to Mufasa, even personal business among the animals, which sparked anger and resentment from the Pridelanders.

Intent on getting their revenge, a group of young animals began to feed lies to Zazu, who in turn told Mufasa. After numerous lies, Mufasa began to distrust Zazu. However, the hornbill later regains his trust when he reports an army ant attack on the Pride Lands and helps to save the land.

After this instance, the young animals are ashamed, and both they and Zazu learn their respective lessons in telling lies and spreading gossip.
