A touching and timeless story about finding friendship in unlikely places from the award-winning creator of Extraordinary Jane
Rupert is a rhinoceros of refined sensibilities. Levi, the new tickbird in class, is not. He burps the alphabet, tells corny jokes, and does really embarrassing air guitar solos. Worse, he lands right on Rupert and is determined to be Rupert's symbiotic best pal! Rupert wants him gone. But when Levi finally does bug off, Rupert finds the peace and quiet a little boring. It turns out, Rupert could really use a friend like Levi.
This sweet and moving friendship story shares an important message of acceptance for every reader--whether they're a Rupert or a Levi.
