“Opposites do attract! And when the rules of friendship are applied even in the unlikeliest pairs of — people? — the results can be golden. Mark Teague nails it with a Serengeti’s worth of wit, wisdom, and charm.”

In a not-so-simple symbiotic friendship between two pals, Egret does his best to teach Rhino about how to be a friend. Friends eat together, have fun together, and help each other out, right? But they also respect boundaries, recognize their differences, and compromise (sometimes).
When Egret ends up in a sticky situation, it’s Rhino to the rescue as this unlikely pair realizes that communication and kindness are the key to any friendship.
