Not wanting to spoil the ending, but this is tale of a girl who's parents are too busy to listen to her. So when a big purple rhino appears in the kitchen she has to prove his existence. It's a lovely book for bed time and a nice reminder for how we should all have time for each other.
This little story has my 3 and a half year old son in stitches when I read it to him. The story is delightful featuring a little girl and her friendship with a purple pancake-eating rhino. The illustrations are excellent and convey real humour from the indentation in the sofa when he sits, to the observation that the rhino couldn't ride the girl's bike not because of the obviously oversized rhino, but because the hat wouldn't fit him. Really, really good and excellent value.

This was bought as a Christmas present brought to my attention through a recommendation from a friend. I know it will be loved by the recipient. Having read it I enjoyed the humour right up to the last page and the message it puts over will serve as a reminder to parents and children that we can too easily get caught up in the everyday and miss the important things. So good I am intending to buy another copy for another small person I know.
