Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Spotting what looks to be a fire at Number One House Row, brave Chief Rhino is determined to save the day. The crew—a moose, giraffe, zebra, and lion—quickly suits up, dashes to the house in their fire engine, and deploys a ladder. Chief Rhino climbs up to Great-Granny Wrinkle's second-floor home with his hose ready—and blasts the 100 candles on her birthday cake with water. There are no hard feelings, since they all share soggy cake and Great Granny knits a horn-warmer for our hero. Lloyd deftly uses puns ("What the blazes?" or "Great balls of fire!") to keep adults amused. The flat-styled cartoons, energized in reds, yellows, and blues, alternate between large elements and highly detailed views, keeping readers fully engaged. The town portraits are gems: Mama Rabbit pushes a six-kit stroller, two pigs ride a scooter and sidecar, and several critters take a dip at the town pool. Chief Rhino's slightly off-kilter eyes and Giraffe's gangly grace make for comic scenes. A fun rescue romp.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA END

Review

“Filled with amusing details, the lively retro-styled cartoon illustrations, in bright colors from a limited palette, add lots of zip. Children will enjoy this return visit to the town introduced in Doctor Meow’s Big Emergency (2008).”—Booklist

Our 4 year old son LOVES both Chief Rhino and Dr. Meow books.
Jason Greenlee
I started my family with "Doctor Meow's Big Emergency", which lead us needing to this one, and then of course "Inspector Croc Investigates"!

Many fun details on each page will engage and amuse both children and adults.

Chief Rhino wants to save the day. He spots a fire, rounds up his firecrew, zooms across whoops-a-daisy-world, mounts the ladder, sprays the water (whoooosh), and then realizes that what he thought was a fire was really just the candles on Granny Wrinkle's birthday cake. So he helps give Granny a super-sizzling birthday party, complete with soggy cake. This book has just-enough tension for a toddler: can he save the day, or at least save the birthday party? Not too scary, but not too boring, it's a perfect story. It is full of fabulous read-aloud words (whoosh and zoom and all). The drawings are simple enough for little kids to understand, yet whimsical enough for little kids to spend a whole lot of time with. The inside of the back-cover is my daughter's favorite: it features thank-you notes from the party, complete with party snapshots, and it can easily take my daughter ten minutes to finish discussing everything she sees in the back cover alone. This is one of my daughter's absolutely favorite books, and thank goodness, because I was getting tired of reading DOCTOR MEOW'S BIG EMERGENCY, her other favorite book, also about whoops-a-daisy-world.

This book has become our stock birthday present for every 3-year-old we know, and every single parent tells us that it has become their child's favorite book, too.

This is a great book in the Whoops-a-daisy World series! I started my family with "Doctor Meow's Big Emergency", which lead us needing to this one, and then of course "Inspector Croc Investigates"! Lots of fun and easy reading.

My 3 year old enjoys this book, but she loves Dr. Meow's Big Emergency better. Both are great books, full of intricate background content you don't usually see in toddler's books.

Really great book!! I saw the Inspector Croc book on the bargain shelf at Barnes and Noble and snagged it because my 3 and 4.5 year old love crocs. The book was so good I came to Amazon looking for other books in the series and found Chief Rhino. So glad I did! Both of my son's really enjoy it and its one of those books where you can read it to your kids and get a lot of interaction with them out of it. Definitely recommend this book for 2-4 year olds.
