Book Synopsis: It’s moving day for Ricoh the rhinoceros and although he’s sad, he’s also excited about the move. He doesn’t like the idea of finding new best friends, but now he knows he has to. The drive to Tickle Road Lane is going to be terribly long, so Ricoh decides it’s time to take a nap. Ricoh soon fell asleep and began dreaming of his new neighborhood and Ricoh land. Ricoh is going to be a king one day. On his way to find Ricoh Land, he meets dragon slayers, mountain climbers, and a brave kid who all want to help find Ricoh Land. He also encounters talking and fire-breathing dragons along the way. A fire-breathing dragon leads Ricoh in pursuit of his life and off the beaten path to Ricoh’s land. Will it ever find its way to the land of Ricoh? Will Ricoh find new friends in the neighborhood?
