Rhinos Don't Eat Pancakes
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Books
Daisy's mum and dad are always too busy to listen to a word that she says, so when, one day, she tells them that a big purple rhino has just walked into the house and taken a chomp of her pancake, guess what? That's right - nobody listens! But there's a surprise in store for Mum and Dad when they discover that a big purple rhino has gone missing from the zoo. Perhaps they should have taken more notice of what Daisy had to say.
A lovely take on the importance of listening to your children from the prize-winning creators of Dogs Don't Do Ballet. Anna Kemp's witty text is brilliantly complimented with characterful illustrations by Booktrust Best New Illustrator 2011 Sara Ogilvie.
