This graphic adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's story relates how the rhinoceros's lack of manners resulted in his baggy skin and bad temper.

I have read quite a few of Martin Powell’s graphic novel retellings and I have loved all them. This book is no exception.  I have never heard the story of how the rhinoceros got his skin, so this was a new one for me. The way this story is retold if pretty funny. I really enjoyed the artwork and I would love to read the rest of the books in this series. I definitely recommend picking this up if you are an adult or a child that likes graphic novel retellings. This is quick read that is great for all ages!

My Rating:
