Meet Rory, the dinosaur.
He loves spending time with his dad, but today he wants to go on his own adventure and explore his island home. He can't wait to tell his dad all about the things he can do all by himself, from crossing rivers to finding shelter from the rain. Little does Rory know, his father is never far behind. There's nothing Rory's dad won't do for his intrepid son--he'll even let him think he's made the journey all by himself.
Comic artist Liz Climo celebrates the bond between father and child with her adorable, deceptively simple illustrations and her timeless story of a child's quest for independence.
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.--Emma Carbone, Brooklyn Public LibraryCopyright 2015 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
