    >> How the Rhinoceros got his Skin? The Parsee wrong doing implications is held by the Rhinos from then and forever, another bad behavior inducing in the idea of someone claiming the results of our bad behavior.

    I DID NOT like this book. Maybe the story doesn't hold up over time, but WOW did I not remember it being this bad. I did not like: -That the rhino was described as looking "exactly like a Noah's ark rhinoceros". Not necessary or appropriate. -That the rhino is described as rude and selfish and "has no manners then, and he has no manners now". For a story for children, this is not a positive thing to promote. The Parsee who put crumbs inside the skin is listed as 'clever' and it seems expected that I DID NOT like this book.

"Today, every rhinoceros has great folds in his skin and a very bad temper" - I understand explaining about the folds but I don't think it helps anything (other than to make the Parsee look good) to promote the perception that rhinos are always angry. The only thing I liked was how the rhino looked with no skin on :)

    A whimsical explanation of why an animal developed it tough skin. I thought the story and illustrations were sweet. Reading time around twenty minutes.

    I grew up loving the Just-So stories and enjoyed seeing how the stories can be adapted to the graphic novel format. Appreciated that at the end of every story there are facts, vocabulary definitions, discussion questions, and personal research ideas. There are some interesting online eBook resources as well for this story. My son explored the eBook editions this summer and we enjoyed them quite a bit.
