Illus. in full color. "A delightfully original fairy tale, Rainbow Rhino recounts the adventures of a rhinoceros and his three colorful avian companions. They lead a peaceful existence until they wander out of their territory, where new sights lure each bird away from his friends. Each finds that his own paradise contains dangers, and ultimately returns to the group. A satisfying contemporary fable, this is a special book to share aloud with preschoolers, for first and second graders to enjoy independently, and for adults to treasure as a beautifully illustrated, timeless tale."--School Library Journal.
