Synopsis

Surfing is an exciting pastime with a lingo and a look all of its own—and it becomes even more fun when three radical rhinos take to the waves. This hilarious look at the sport will delight readers of every age. The brilliant watercolor illustrations bring alive the thrill of shredding mondo waves, carving up the face, and finally, riding the last wave into bedtime. Young children will especially love hearing this book read aloud and looking at the colorful and way-cool pictures.

A wild blend of the psychedelic with folk art provides the eye-filling graphics of Mammano's first book, which has no story for mondo dudes to carve up but constructs a day in the life of some surfing rhinos using only California surfer lingo.
