Jon AgeeClick here for biography

A hilarious story from master of the absurd, Jon Agee, where a boy finds out that his pet rhinoceros can do more than he bargained for !

If you should ever get a rhinoceros for a pet, you’re in for a surprise. It wont chase a ball. Or a stick. Or a frisbee. In fact, according to the experts, a rhinoceros does only two things: pop balloons and poke holes in kites. But dont be discouraged. As youll discover in this book, rhinoceroses can do more—so much more—than that!
