Rory, first seen in Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad, has just met his buddy Hank’s new pet crab, and now Rory wants his own pet. After some false starts—“Would you like to be my pet?” Rory asks a tortoise. “Nope,” it replies—a coconut falls out of a tree. Problem solved. “Dad, he followed me home can I keep him?” Rory shouts; Dad just stares. No matter. The coconut—promptly named George—is the pet of Rory’s dreams, and Climo’s crisp, ever-adorable cartoons show the two teeter-tottering, playing dress-up, and sharing a bubble bath. It’s a cheerfully absurd portrait of unconditional love. Ages 4–8. Agent: Kathleen Ortiz, New Leaf Literary & Media. (June)
