Long ago in the dawn of time, before the world was sorted into the shapes it is in today, there lived a very rude rhinoceros with a wonderfully tight, smooth skin. So how did the rhinoceros get the saggy, baggy skin he has today – not to mention his terrible temper?
Retold in this young edition, Rudyard Kipling’s timeless fable draws on Indian and African folklore to tell a story that sweeps readers back into the primal world. Bringing a burst of exotic flavour into the classroom, and shimmering with unusual, comical language for little tongues to wrap themselves around, it is both a fabulous story and a fresh, imaginative way to get children thinking about the origins, forms and uses of things.
