Description

Meet Roy. (He loves sweet potatoes.)

Meet the rhinos. (So do they. Uh-oh!)

Rhinos are on the loose. . . . Look out! Look out!

The rhinos want the sweet potatoes. The villagers want the sweet potatoes, too. That spells trouble. Can the rhinos and the villagers live happily ever after together?

Maybe . . . if Roy can find a way to save the day.

Join in this exuberant romp that celebrates how kindness and courage can turn the world right side up!
