A new picture book about sharing from the pair that created Poles Apart.
This romping, rhyming story from award-winning author Jeanne Willis is all about a little rhino who likes to make the rules! When Rhino finds a tree bursting with fruit, he isn’t about to share it with anyone — after all, he’s in charge around here! But it looks like things might be about to change. With brilliant illustrations from Jarvis, this hilarious toddler-tantrum tale is all about being bossy and learning to listen to others.
The familiarity of Rhino’s self-absorbed, controlling behavior and the predictable, satisfying end make this a good choice for the youngest listeners. The "terrible twos" come alive at the savanna watering hole. —Kirkus Reviews
The book’s double-page spreads feature cheerful digital illustrations with sunrise tones and watercolor effects that effectively convey the heat and expanse of the savanna. A nice lesson couched in absorbing illustrations and simple rhymes. —Booklist
