hippos are in nude and rhinos too it is a r*** war

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
not rated for age

Simply funny

Careless employee labels a rhino as hippo, much to the rhino's frustration! This book has some subtle adult appeal...Imagine the voices of the characters, the slack zoo employee, the arty couple, very funny!! The expressions on the poor rhino's face are priceless. Simple text make it easy for young kids, but adults can laugh along as well.
