Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad

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.


"This is probably one of the best family-bonding picture books I’ve read this year… The illustrations include some humor for adults/older readers. The book is a great story about parents watching out for their kids but still letting them have an adventure. All in all, it’s a great mixture of fun for everyone.” 
-Kid Reviews Books

“Readers will appreciate the clean design and the warm and humorous story; they’ll hope Rory sets off again soon.”

“Shot through with tender humor, this is a knowing look at the ways that a father allows a child to grow.”
-Publishers Weekly Starred Review
