The Lovereading4Kids comment

Daisy’s used to her parents not listening to her – they are always too busy. But, when a big purple rhinoceros comes right into the house and eats her pancakes she feels something must be done! A vibrant and heart warming story about a very vivid imaginary friend who is just too big not to be noticed!


Rhinos Don't Eat Pancakes by Anna Kemp

Daisy's mum and dad are always too busy to listen to a word that she says, so when, one day, she tells them that a big purple rhino has just walked into the house and taken a chomp of her pancake, guess what? That's right - nobody listens! But there's a surprise in store for Mum and Dad when they discover that a big purple rhino has gone missing from the zoo. Perhaps they should have taken more notice of what Daisy had to say. Kids will love this funny story about a little girl and her most unlikely new friend.
