LoveReading View on I'm in Charge!

I'm in Charge! delivers a useful life lesson with humour and style. He may be only little, but this baby rhino knows just how to throw his weight around, bossing all the other animals in ways that may be horribly familiar to parents of toddlers. It takes a stampede of beefy wildebeest to teach him that he’s not really in charge. The story is told with typical wit and insight by the incomparable Jeanne Willis in a rhyming text that is sheer pleasure to read aloud, while Jarvis creates glorious scenes depicting little rhino’s encounters with his fellow wild animals in the glowing, richly saturated colours of his illustrations. ~ Andrea Reece

The Editor at Nosy Crow says “A laugh-out-loud book about a catastrophically cantankerous toddler rhino – what’s not to love? It may be set in the savannah, but this is brilliantly-observed preschool behaviour.”


I'm in Charge! Synopsis

This romping rhyming story from award-winning author Jeanne Willis is all about a little rhino who likes to make the rules! When Rhino finds a tree bursting with fruit, he isn't about to share it with anyone - after all, he's in charge round here! But it looks like things are about to change...
