Chetan is a young lad living with his father, who is a game warden in the Kaziranga rhino game sanctuary in India. He yearns to adopt a baby rhino. He is lonely. His father does not warm to the idea. Chetan wanders into the sanctuary deep in thought, and finds an abandoned baby rhino in a cave. He decides to take it home. He pushes, pulls and prods it, and they come home.
His father frowns, but does not protest. Chetan feeds the baby. All of a sudden, the mother rhino bursts onto the scene with a roar, and Chetan runs to his father.
It sounds like a rock solid plan. Josh and Matt will rollerblade the length of New Zealand, film their adventure, meet interesting characters and make an inspirational travel documentary. There's just a few small problems: winter is fast approaching, they are severely underprepared, and they are terrible at rollerblading.
A collaborative project with six kiwi artists - including 13-year-old Anna Simpson - this book encourages, motivates, and gives practical ideas for young artists to grow in their identity as an artist and cultivate their unique voice.
The perfect gift for that budding artist in your life!
Eight-year-old adventure seeker Pete is convinced something mysterious is hidden in the school staff room. His ten-year-old sister, Trudy, who is much more practical, is not. But when adventure does appear in Mini Moa form, can the siblings work together to outsmart a fake substitute caretaker?
