Author(s): Daniel Kirk
Rhino in the House is the true story of Anna Merz and the black rhino Samia. Anna created the Lewa Downs Conservancy as a sanctuary for black rhinos and other animals. When she found a small rhino calf abandoned by its mother, she took it home, naming it Samia. Everywhere Anna went, Samia followed. But with time, Samia got bigger and bigger--to the point where she couldn't fit inside Anna's house any longer. It was time to reintroduce Samia to the wild. Daniel Kirk travelled to Kenya to research the book, resulting in a story with fun and heart. Accompanying the story is his classic art style that his fans have come to love. The book includes a bibliography, an author's note and photos of Anna and Samia.
Daniel Kirk is the bestselling author of the beloved Library Mouse series, as well as a range of picture books and novels for young readers, including The Thing About Spring, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas and the Elf Realm trilogy. He lives with his wife in Glen Ridge, New Jersey.
