Ubuntu : Summer of the Rhino, Hardback Book


As the moon rises over the South African savannah, a young African girl called Thembile and her father, a wildlife ranger, are out patrolling through the night on horseback.

They hear the heart-rending cries of a terrified rhino calf, and find him shivering beside the mutilated body of his mother.

Help is summoned, but who will care for this orphan, look after him and pay for his milk and medicines?

Ubuntu: Summer of the Rhino is brilliantly told and beautifully illustrated and will delight children from the age of eight years upwards.

It tells the story of a young African girl and an English boy living in Dubai, whose love of animals and interest in wildlife inspires them to care for an orphaned Rhino, Ubuntu.

The story of Ubuntu the rhino weaves back and forth across continents, at once heart-breaking and heart-warming, teaching children the importance of conservation and protecting our wildlife.

All royalties will be donated to the Rhino Rehabilitation Centre of Rhino Revolution, to help rescue and rehabilitate orphaned rhinos.
