Watch Jon Agee win over a new flock of fans—the toddler set

If you should ever get a rhinoceros for a pet, you're in for a surprise. It won't chase a ball. Or a stick. Or a frisbie. In fact, according to the experts, a rhinoceros does only two things: pop balloons and poke holes in kites.

But don't be discouraged. As you'll discover in Jon Agee's hilarious picture book, rhinoceroses can do more—so much more—than that! -quoted from Goodreads

A really cute story about a boy who chooses a pet, but this pet isn't quite what he had excepted. This rhinoceros surprisingly proves just how great of a pet he is! I never thought a rhinoceros would make a great pet, but after reading this hilarious story I can see just how useful this pet could be. This is a fun story with some great illustrations.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
