Rory the Dinosaur Needs a Christmas Tree

Liz Climo. Little, Brown, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-316-31523-4
The delights are in the details in Rory the dinosaur’s third picture book, which features more sly cartooning and understated storytelling from Climo. A Christmas tree is the only piece of holiday décor missing from Rory and his father’s island tree house (stockings made for clawed feet hang above a roaring campfire), and the two don their “winter gear” before heading out (a scarf and pair of earmuffs get the job done in their tropical environs). Immovable palms and sad stumps don’t fit the bill, but Rory’s disappointment proves short-lived when his tall, green, and spiky father brings new meaning to the idea of a living Christmas tree. A total charmer. Ages 4–8. Agent: Kathleen Ortiz, New Leaf Literary & Media. (Oct.)
