Preposterous Rhinoceros

We love reviewing for Maverick Arts Publishing and they’ve sent us a bundle of their latest releases to share with you all.  Cue one very excited Monkey – which one would you like to read first Monkey?  Being a rather big fan of a certain wild animal I wasn’t surprised when he picked Preposterous Rhinoceros.

Preposterous Rhinoceros

Preposterous Rhinoceros is written by Tracy Gunaratnam with colourful illustrations from Marta Costa.  This 32 page paperback picture book is published this week on 28th January and it’s been a big hit here.

The animals all love their bedtime story but disaster strikes one night when King Lion has lost his voice.  What will happen now, it’s always the Lion who reads the story.  Rhinoceros offers to take over the book reading duties until Lion is feeling better, but the other animals laugh at him. He knows nothing about books and we soon learn that the Rhinoceros knows nothing about reading either; which caused lots of giggles from Monkey.

Preposterous Rhinoceros

The poor Rhino has no idea how to read a book so he asks different animals for their advice.  That would be fine, but he takes the advice quite literally – he tries to dive head first into a book!  More giggles from Monkey and more mishaps for the Rhino until finally Shy Salamander sits him down and teaches him how to read.

This really is a lovely book, it’s funny and perfect for a 5 year old Monkey who is learning to read at the moment.  Priced at £6.99 it gets a big thumbs up from Monkey and Mummy.

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.
