Archie is a rhino with a LOT of questions. He wants to know everything: Why glue is so sticky? Why do dropped things go SMASH? If only finding out was a little less messy... Everybody's much-loved rhino returns in this brand-new sequel to No! from the wonderful Tracey Corderoy (Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam and The Little White Owl) and award-winning Tim Warnes (I Don't Want to Go to Bed). Brimming with gorgeous illustrations, this warm, funny book is guaranteed to become a firm favourite. A must for all families with curious toddlers who just love to ask WHY?
