Sometimes You Find a Red Rhinoceros is a unique addition to the long list of laugh-out-loud stories for children.

Andy Myer conceived the book to place each reader right in the center of the fun. The illustrations were carefully crafted so that the “YOU” in the book’s title is the “YOU” in the story. The hands and feet at the edges of the pages become the hands and feet of the child holding the book, regardless of gender or race.

The illustrations really shine in this book. Even a child who can’t read would be able to follow the story line by looking at the pictures. Great message that sometimes when you love someone the best thing is to let them go.

My students went wild for Sometimes You Find A Red Rhinoceros! My Kindergarteners loved the bold, whimsical illustrations and the clever, humorous story. They took to the fantastical story of bringing home such a giant, wonderful creature and could imagine the fun and challenges of actually living with a rhinoceros. Of course, even better from the teacher point-of-view is creating awareness for this endangered species.

—Amazon Reviewer

A humorous, wonderfully illustrated tale of animal hijinks.
