"This story is a positive way for children to learn how litter in the ocean and oil spills can affect sea creatures and their homes. If you like sea animals and care for the environment then this is a good book for you!" —National Geographic Kids

“The real-life story of Munu captured my heart and to see it retold in this charming and beautiful book for children is an absolute dream. This tale about a young rhino surviving in the wild is well crafted and rich with imagination and fantasy. It takes you on Munu’s extraordinary journey with compassion and love and with joyous humour. It is also a story of friendship and what can be achieved when people work together. I hope children around the world will fall in love with Munu and his story after reading this. The colourful and detailed illustrations practically leap from the page and expertly recreate life in the African bush. This very special book will encourage a child’s interest in the natural world and help create our future conservationists. Munu is lovable and endearing and every child will cheer and remember the world’s most special rhino for many years to come!” —Helen Worth, actor and recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award (British Soap Awards, 2014)
