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!
