Ayubu roams the African savanna with his mother, Nthanda, and their friend Imari, the cattle egret. Life is peaceful and happy for the baby rhinoceros. That is, until he’s faced with a tragic and unforeseen challenge. “Promise me you will be brave,” his mother tells him— but it’s a lot to ask of a baby who doesn’t even have his horns yet! As Ayubu grows into a handsome young rhino, he discovers friendship and new happiness with a bold little elephant named Raziya. When one of their playful adventures goes awry, Raziya finds herself in grave danger. With his best friend in peril, Ayubu must confront his greatest fear. Can the young rhino keep his promise to his mother and be brave?
A touching story of family and friendship, loss and courage, and above all, hope.
