Daisy is eating her breakfast when a big purple rhinoceros strolls into the kitchen - just like that! Then it takes a bite out of her pancake - just like that! Daisy tries to tell her mum and dad, but they're much too busy to listen. They're always too busy to listen.
So Daisy starts talking to the rhino instead...
A funny, heart-warming story, cooked up by the creators of the bestselling Dogs Don't Do Ballet.
