The Really Rude Rhino

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Tony Ross

The first paperback publication of this hilarious picture book from this award-winning author/illustrator team.

Little Rhino is rude to everyone, and has been since the day he was born. He sticks his tongue out, he makes rude noises and he waves his bottom at anyone in front of him, with no respect for person or place. Until, that is, he meets his match with someone who is prepared to treat him the same way!
