Overview
In Janik Coat's much-anticipated follow-up to Hippopposites, a blue rhinoceros unabashedly demonstrates 16 pairs of rhyming words. His ability to appear "stinky" and "inky," or "caring" and "daring," oftentimes lands him in compromising contexts. Fortunately, he doesn't seem to mind. Surprising novelty features such as gold foil stamping and flocking enhance this unique, gifty, high-design
concept board book.

Reprising the format of 2012’s Hippopposites, Coat uses a denim-colored rhinoceros to demonstrate more than a dozen pairs of rhyming words and phrases. Setting the rhino against minimal backdrops keeps the focus on how Coat alters the animal’s simple graphic shape: brown fuzz makes the rhino “furry,” while digital manipulation turns its outline “blurry.” Some pairings hint at cause-and-effect relationships (a rain “shower” appears opposite the rhino holding a pink “flower,” and a lemon tree creates “shade” while its fruit makes “lemonade”). Like its predecessor, this is a wide-ranging, stylish, and witty introduction to a key concept. Ages 2–4. (Mar.)
