About: So wonderful to see the illustrious Charles Fuge putting a story to his fabulous pictures – in this case, a delightful tale that will warm every young child’s heart.

Surely, one of the most treasured possessions of any childhood is the furry friends we snuggle with at night – friends we hold for comfort and protection, friends we talk to and tell stories to and share our troubles and our joys.

I Know a Rhino tells the lovely rhyming tale of a little girl who knows a cacophony of scrumptious, exotic animals – with whom she shares tea, has mud fights and spins around until she gets dizzy. But these are no ordinary animals, these are the very plush toys she sleeps with at night.

This lovely tale is a joy for its effortless rhyming text and heart-warmingly beautiful pictures. A quick read that will become a bedtime favourite.
