In this follow-up to Oliver and his Alligator, Oliver spots a rock on the playground. But it's not just any rock-he's sure it's a dinosaur egg. And once it hatches, he has the best new friend he could ask for. They sail to a deserted island and even launch into outer space. But as great as it is to travel with his dinosaur alone, Oliver realizes that it is even more fun when all of his friends bring their imaginations along for the ride!

Oliver and His Egg by Paul Schmid. Oliver brings home a rock that he is certain is a dinosaur egg and imagines the wonderful fun he will share with his new friend once it hatches.
