#MaverickMonday Preposterous Rhinoceros by Tracy Gunaratnam

Hi everyone!

Welcome to another #MaverickMonday! Beebop has been poorly for the last week which is why we’ve been a bit slow on the posts, but she’s got another tooth through! Needless to say, we’ve been curled under a duvet quite a lot with our favourite books and some new books too! One of these new books was Preposterous Rhinoceros by Tracy Gunaratnam, kindly sent to us by Maverick.

Imagine if mummies and daddies lost their voice and weren’t able to read bedtime stories? What an awful thing that would be! This is what happens to our poor Rhinoceros. King Lion ALWAYS reads the bedtime story but now he has lost his voice! Luckily, Rhinoceros wants to try reading the story instead. If only he could figure out how to read a book!

The illustrations by Marta Costa are really funny. The colours are really bright and we love the expressions on the character’s faces (especially Shy Salamander – seen hidden on the corner of the front cover!)

Duck! Flying Rhinoceros!

How DO you read a book?!

We loved this book. It was really funny, easy to read and it’s perfect for little ones who are having a hard time with their reading, it might give them a little boost of confidence! It’s okay to struggle with learning to read (even if you’re a Rhinoceros!), they’ll get there in the end!

Thanks to Maverick again for the book (see their website for upcoming books and colouring in pages!). You can also follow Tracy on Twitter too! Thank you for reading our post. We hope half term is treating you well and you have lots of exciting things to do! Look out for our next post towards the end of the week! See you soon 🙂
