A whimsical story about keeping a rhino for a pet. I like how sassy Rita's character is and how oblivious the adults are to the fact that she now has a pet rhino. Readers will delight in the pages where rhino pretends to be a bouncy castle and where Rita must hide the rhino poo in the park. A thoroughly enjoyable read aloud for preschoolers and early elementary grades!
