When little Mica Mouse is scared by thunder booming outside
her cozy home, Papa Mouse reaches for just the right story
to comfort her. Hugging her close, he begins to read The
Rhino Who Swallowed a Storm. In this poetic
book-within-a-book, a happy little rhinoceros is overwhelmed
by a storm that sweeps away everything he loves. Swallowing
the storm just makes him feel worse, so Rhino sets off on a
whimsical journey toward healing.
Along the way, he meets many friends, including a kind
spider, a brave kangaroo, a wise tortoise, and an uplifting
whale. With their help, Rhino lets go of the storm inside
and learns to see the light in a world turned gray. Mica
Mouse is soothed by the story and Papa’s gentle reminder
that even though bad things sometimes happen, the world is
full of people who care.
