Eudora is a little rhino with a big problem: She wants a baby brother! Or even a baby sister! She tries unsuccessfully to talk her parents into giving her one. Finally, with the help of her parents, Eudora learns that she is "only, but not lonely."

The charming illustrations and Eudora's many moods make this book a delightful way to help only children understand the joys and the pressures that come with only-child status, and give parents a way to answer a tricky (and inevitable) question.
