Summer is over and our rhino friends have hung up their surfboards, grabbed their snowboards, and taken to the slopes. colorful watercolors from Julie Mammano capture an epic day of snowboarding for these totally aggro rhinos. They catch air, take insane gaps and charge the steeps until it's time to head home and chill in the cabin, dreaming of their next ride. Snowboarders and those who dream of boarding will love these adorably extreme rhinos and a glossary of snowboarding speak is included to boost anyone's boarding know-how.

Julie Mammano is a freelance artist and illustrator who lives and works in Southern California. In preparation for her books, Julie has learned to surf, snowboard, skateboard and most recently, how to play soccer.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3?Those Rhinos Who Surf (Chronicle, 1996) are now on snowboards, taking to the slopes with great daring and abandon and attempting "totally aggro" feats. In case the text is beyond your ken, a glossary of "board speak" at the end of the book will help non-boarders understand. At the end of the day, "Rhinos who snowboard CHILL OUT while loads of PHAT POW DUMP outside. Tomorrow will be EPIC!" Bright, stylized drawings using strange angles and perspectives capture the action of the three friends engaged in their acrobatic endeavors with text curving about the flying figures?artistic almost to the point of confusion. The picture-book format may not appeal to readers actually old enough to be involved in the sport, but it's sure to create some interest in it.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
