Set in the same rainforest in Sumatra as Sandford’s multi-award-winning debut The Problem with Poppy, the new book is based around a lonely young rhino called Tawny who forms a friendship with a confident hornbill called Tallulah. Sadly, there are only 80 Sumatran rhinos left on the planet, so this socially conscious book about self-confidence and body image also has a strong conservationist message. As with Poppy, we have partnered again with Rainforest Trust UK and have committed once again to donating £1 per book sale to the charity. So, when you buy this book, it’s not just your child that benefits. The animals in the Sumatran rainforest do, too. 🙂
Here’s the book’s blurb:
Tawny longs to make friends with another rhino, but her shyness holds her back. When she meets a hornbill called Tallulah, she is surprised to learn that she has a lot in common with the beautiful bird. Will Tawny find a way to overcome her shyness, and can Tallulah help her find a companion?
