Jenny Stow : Artist and Illustrator


Poor baby Shukudu! It's hard trying to be a rhinoceros when you have no horns. "Horns

take time to grow" says his mother. How Shukudu learns patience and gains his heart's desire is portrayed with warmth and humour.

Set in Africa this story describes the difficulties

of growing up faced by a young rhinoceros.


"I was immensely attracted by the vibrant colours and the humour... the glow of the colours made me feel I was embarking upon

my own mini safari, feasting upon text and illustration."

School Librarian.


"The vibrant pictures capture the glowing, ever-shifting colours of the African bush beautifully."
