Preposterous Rhinoceros - Book Review

The last book we received to review from Maverick Books is called Preposterous Rhinoceros. It is written by Tracy Gunaratnam and is illustrated by Marta Costa.


The book is about some animals who are getting ready for bed and are awaiting King Lion to come and read them a bedtime story. Sadly, King Lion has lost his voice so the animals need someone else to read to them. Rhinoceros volunteers and the animals think that the idea of Rhinoceros reading is preposterous but they decide to let him have a go. Rhinoceros doesn't know how to read though and he tries many things to read the book. He shakes it until all of the pages fall out, he smothers himself in honey when Toucan suggests he gets stuck right in and he even attempts a key.

Luckily Rhinoceros' friend Shy Salamander does know how to read a book so she teaches Rhinoceros. It took some time but eventually Rhinoceros figured out how to read.

This is a fun picture book which is easy to follow and read with first readers. It's a lovely story about friendship and learning to read.

The book is available to buy from Amazon.

We received this book for the purposes of a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
