Staff Reviews

A stellar concept book for little ones, Rhymoceros introduces rhymes in a cheeky and easy-to-decode format. By adding variations to the same basic animal shape - one rhino encounters a "shower" while another holds a "flower" - Coat maintains a balance between predictable and new clues that help kids visually grasp the rhyming pair. And even though big for a board book, Rhymoceros still fits well in little hands and laps!

— From Niki


In Janik Coat's much-anticipated follow-up to Hippopposites, a blue rhinoceros unabashedly demonstrates 16 pairs of rhyming words. His ability to appear "stinky" and "inky," or "caring" and "daring," oftentimes lands him in compromising contexts. Fortunately, he doesn't seem to mind. Surprising novelty features such as gold foil stamping and flocking enhance this unique, gifty, high-design
concept board book.
