Charlotte has always really wanted a pet, so when her parents present her with one for her birthday she expects a cat, dog, or maybe a bird. Instead, she receives a rock. Rocks can't cuddle, fetch, or even help her eat her vegetables, but that doesn't stop Charlotte from loving her rock as if he were real. If only he could love her back... or can he?
"Kids will giggle over Charlotte’s efforts to treat her rock like a normal pet, and it’s refreshingto see a child making the best of a disappointing situation." -- Booklist
"Charlotte discovers things she and Dennis can do together (read, dress up as superheroes) but mourns that Dennis can’t love her back. When Dennis hatches (spoiler: he’s an egg), he delivers unexpected joy.... Martin’s (Robot Smash!) dry humor delivers giggles ('You said what ate your homework?' Charlotte’s teacher snaps), and so does the concluding reversal of fortune." Publishers Weekly
