Rhymoceros by Janik Coat is the follow up to the concept book Hippopposites (2010). Now with the help of a blue rhinoceros, Janik teaches the concept of rhyming words.
The humor in this book lies once more in its apparent simplicity. The rhinoceros just like the hippopotamus looks like a piece of computer clip art. There just doesn't seem like there's much that can be done with it while keeping it relatively unchanged.
But it's in the surprises to expectations (especially to older readers) that the delight and laughter is elicited. For the intended age group, the book also includes tactile experiences, such as the quilted or bumpy rhinoceros.
