In this companion to Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad, Rory learns that sometimes the things you're looking for are actually looking for you!
When Rory meets his friend Sheldon's pet crab, he realizes he wants a pet of his own. He searches high and low--from tree tops to sand pits--for a creature to love. At the end of the day, when Rory least expects it, he meets George.

Praise for Rory the Dinosaur Wants a Pet: "The cartoon-style illustrations, achieved with "digital magic," are set off with plenty of white space, and...it is an appealing read-aloud. Children just developing a sense of humor will appreciate the innocent silliness of the tale."
"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."—Publishers Weekly
"Climo's sweet digital illustrations brim with vibrant colors, and young listeners will enjoy noting the many witty visual details.... A perfect lap-sit title or story hour choice."—Booklist
