Rhinoceros isn't a very fun pet - he doesn't really do much. The rhinoceros expert says that rhinos only really do two things: pop balloons, and poke holes in kites.
Not very good activities for a boy and a rhinoceros who want to go to the park... where there is a balloon man (rhino doesn't pay him a glance) and a bunch of kids flying kites (rhino doesn't care).
On the way home from the park, the boy and the rhino see two bank robbers getting away... in a hot air balloon and by kite!

Ralph isn't a normal raccoon - he doesn't like being messy, or rude. So his parents ship him off to Bandit School, where Ralph is the worst student of all. He's just awful at everything, and when the term ends, his teacher assigns a competition - whoever has the largest sack of loot after vacation wins the Best Bandit prize. Ralph isn't interested, not one bit. He stays in his room reading over the break, not wanting to get in anyone's way. But then something happens on his way back to school, and Ralph becomes the best!
