Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692220429, Hardcover)In Zimbabwe during a recent August, two park rangers made a surprising discovery. They found an abandoned baby black rhino, only days old. They called the park manager who, knowing the rhino could not survive alone, did something as surprising as the discovery itself: he took the baby rhino home. Chizi's Tale is the true story of that baby rhino. Chizi still lives with the park manager, his wife, and their children until he matures and can be released back into the wild. Written by a young author determined to share Chizi's story as a way to help save the black rhino, Chizi's Tale is a remarkable, moving story about an endearing and vulnerable rhino and the brave family helping him.
"This magical tale would never have happened without the tragic plague of poaching in Africa. It is beautifully illustrated and informative -- a heartwarming way to enlighten children and parents alike."
- Dave Matthews
"Having a true passion for books about enchanting animals, I was delighted to read Chizi's story. It is funny and charming and delivers a powerful message. This book will raise awareness and inspire children and parents alike to take action and help protect the black rhino and the planet's other endangered species." Craig Hatkoff, Author,Owen and Mzee
As the endangered black rhino fights to remain viable in the wild, I can think of no better way to help save the species than to educate children - and adults about this wonderful animal. Chizi s Tale is an engaging and appealing book, and Jack Jones has found the right balance of fun and responsibility to tell Chizi s story. Educational and entertaining, the book teaches an important lesson and gently encourages all of us to help save our world s vanishing species through kindness and determination. Jeff Trandahl, CEO and Executive Director, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation
"Chizi's Tale is the delightful story about a very unorthodox house pet. Appealing to all ages, it focuses attention on the very important issue of the protection of our wildlife. And amazingly, written by a young man who's still in high school and who has already dedicated much of his young life to the preservation of our natural world." Diane Garrett, Diane's Books of Greenwich
