Climo, Liz Rory the Dinosaur Wants a Pet, PICTUREBOOK. Little Brown and Company (Hatchette) 2016. $16.99. Content: G.
Rory’s friend Hank has a pet. He is fun to play with and now Rory wants a pet. All the way home he looks for a pet, but all of them are wrong (too busy, to hard to get to, not interested in being a pet) but then a coconut rolls by and Rory thinks it followed him home and wants to keep it for a pet.
This funny story could start discussions about what a pet is, and how to acquire one. It was strange but funny seeing an animal with another animal as a pet. Particularly when Rory asked a Tortoise if he would be his pet and the tortoise said “Nope”. Simple illustrations, cute story. Loved the coconut playing dress-up.
