Don't Be Preposterous, Mr. Rhinoceros!
by Gloria Fligg

Mr. Rhinoceros, the friendly florist, loves his flower shop. He enjoys planting seeds and growing beautiful flowers. Even more, Mr. Rhinoceros loves his customers and friends. But one day, he hears about some big and terrible weeds that are beginning to grow all over town, forcing everyone to stay inside for a very long time! Mr. Rhinoceros misses his flower shop and friends very much, but he finds a way to help those he cares about during this strange and unusual time. Mr. Rhinoceros learns that when things are hard, sometimes the best way to help yourself is to help those around you.
