Little Rhino is rude to everyone, and has been since the day he was born. He sticks his tongue out, he makes rude noises, and he waves his bottom at anyone in front of him, with no respect for person or place. The doctor said there was no cure for his rudeness. Until, that is, he meets his match with someone who is prepared to treat him the same way.
