Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad

illus. by Liz Climo. 40p. Little, Brown. May 2015. Tr $17.00. ISBN 9780316277280. LC 2014015126.
PreS-Gr 1—Rory is an energetic dinosaur who lives on an island with his father. When Rory's dad needs quiet time, Rory sets out to find some adventures all by himself. Little does he know, Dad is there every step of the way to make sure that nothing goes wrong. Bright colors and clean lines help bring these whimsical characters, previously seen in Climo's comic blog, to life. Climo's hand lettering lends a folksy quality to the otherwise sleek style of her digital artwork. Ample white space on each page and small pieces of text make this a read-aloud option with broad appeal.
VERDICT An excellent addition for most collections.
