Rhinocorn Rules

LoveReading View on Rhinocorn Rules

Ron the Rhino reinvents himself in this delightful story, bringing joy to those around him too as he proves that being yourself, making lots of friends and having fun are the only life rules that matter.  As the story opens, Ron is struggling with the rhino lifestyle and its rules, which are all about being alone, being grumpy and charging at anything that comes near you. Looking like a rhino understandably means making friends is very hard, but then Ron has a flash of inspiration and finds a way to show his true colours. Reborn as the fabulously flamboyant Rhinocorn, he’s happy for the first time ever.  A funny and satisfying story that neatly delivers a message about tolerance, understanding and the importance of being happy in your own skin.

Children who love Ron will of course love Elmer too, and vice versa.

Rhinocorn Rules Synopsis

Move over unicorns, it's time for a very special animal to take centre stage - meet Rhinocorn! Ron is a rhino like no other. He doesn't like to live by the other rhino rules - the other rhinos are grumpy, solitary and they will charge at anything that gets in their way. But not Ron. Ron likes music, art and only wants to have fun. He is determined to live his best life and not conform to the herd. When Ron paints himself into a bright unicorn, all of the other animals think he's the coolest animal ever, but his rhino family are less impressed. Will they learn to embrace Ron for who he really is?

An uplifting and funny new picture book story about daring to be different, from the creator of Superbat.
