Description


Cave Boy wants a pet more than anything. Can he find one that the whole family will agree on?
Cave Boy has lots of things. Rocks. Sticks. A club. But no pet Cave Boy decides he must have a pet, but his parents object. He brings home animal after animal in hopes of overcoming his parents' steadfast resistance, but his attempts are unsuccessful--until he finds a Dodo bird that is literally on the verge of extinction. And in a twist ending on a classic concept, Cave Boy and his family discover it's worthwhile to have animal friends around.
With snappy text that is short, fun, and young, Me Want Pet makes for an ideal read-aloud for the milk-and-cookies set.

Praise For…


"This account of the age-old bond between animals and children is ideally paced for read-aloud pleasure."—Kirkus



"A humorous read-aloud that’s both age-appropriate and entertaining...Sauer and Shea’s collaboration will entice readers."—School Library Journal



The adorably stilted language gives this go-round a fresh appeal, as do Shea’s wonderful digital illustrations, which put the roughly sketched Cave Boy atop constantly shifting and emotionally appropriate backgrounds of stone gray, hopeful yellow, and so on. The conclusion, in which the three animals save the day and all become pets, may make parents nervous. Pet-crazy kids, though, will say, “Me like.” --BOOKLIST, March 1, 2012
