Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
10 K-Gr 3 A delightfully original fairy tale, Rainbow Rhino recounts the adventures of a rainbow rhinoceros and his three colorful avian companions who live in a tropical valley. They lead a peaceful, contented existence until they wander out of their familiar territory, where new sights lure each bird away from his friends, until Rhino finds himself alone. Each friend finds that his own exotic paradise contains hidden dangers, and he ultimately returns to the comfortable friendship of the group. The moral implications are simple and sincere: the grass really isn't greener on the other side of the fence, and that true friendship is to be valued. Sis' stylized but sophisticated full-page drawings in muted tones with splashes of primary color, resembling old master stipple engravings, perfectly balance the spare prose and the quiet universality of the tale. Through its gentle humor, simple wisdom, and subtle sophistication, Rainbow Rhino is a satisfying contemporary fable. This is a special book for parents and librarians to share aloud with preschoolers, for first and second graders to enjoy independently, and for adults to treasure as a beautifully illustrated, timeless tale. Pamela Miller Ness, The Fenn Sch . , Concord, Mass.

    Colorful and enchanting

    When I chose this book to present to my Children's Literature class, the students were captivated by the illustrations! What a wonderful tale of friendship, belonging, and identity... the pictures make the story come alive... children feel as if they can actually touch the long, dry grass or feel the coolness of the river.
