Thore Hansen
The Secret of the Rhino

“Where are you going?” Emilie asked. “It’s a
secret,”vthe rhino replied.
Emilie is sitting on a branch thinking when a rhinoceros shows up. Together they set out on a journey through the land where the fairy tales live.
They go deeper and deeper into the dark forest, and from her seat on the rhino’s back Emilie sees magical, unbelievable, scary creatures.
What fairy tales are they from? Emilie asks. You just might have to invent the answer yourself, says the rhino.
Follow this unlikely pair into the world of fantasy and adventure.
