Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
In a wildlife park in Africa, a young rhino named Robbi can hardly wait to grow up and have a horn like his mother. One day, a girl visits the park in a van, spies Robbi and shouts out, "Look it's a Nosserus." Upon hearing this, Robbi mistakenly thinks that a Nosserus is some horrible monster and sets out to warn all his friends. Finally, after causing considerable panic, one of his friends, a white bird named Dilly, laughingly sets the record straight. Blass' illustration of the Nosserus is quite evil looking with its skin as red as blood, purple feet, ten foot long tail and sharp as a carving knife and would have been better left to the readers' imagination. This story might have been improved with some skillful editing and furthermore, the illustrations are inconsistent.
