Published: 2022 by Walker Books Australia
Level: Middle Years (6-9)
1891, a cargo ship transporting exotic animals encounters tumultuous seas and loses most of its cargo off the coast of Australia – including Rhino and numerous other animals. Meanwhile, Evie and her grandfather are living a quiet life, dealing with the loss of Evie’s parents. When Evie stumbles across Rhino on the beach, their bond is immediate and Evie knows she has to help Rhino, no matter what. Highly recommended.
