Summary
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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Cave Boy is living the dream: he sleeps by the fire next to his other Cro-Magnons, frolics with butterflies in the flowers, and has an array of interesting sticks. But all is not well. Me sad, he says. Want pet. So off he goes, looking both under rocks and across the forest until he finds a friendly woolly mammoth. His family, though, is not so thrilled with Woolly. - Ug,' grunted Mama. 'He too big. Where he sleep?' Cave Boy tries again with a saber-toothed tiger and a dodo bird to similar results. It's a pattern familiar to oh-so-many picture books about the overwhelming desire to take care of an animal. 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. --Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this Stone Age comedy, Sauer (Mr. Duck Means Business) and Shea (I'm a Shark) imagine a child with a demand as old as time. Cave Boy begs his parents for an animal companion, but Mama sends Cave Boy's woolly mammoth away ("He too big. Where he sleep?"), Papa is allergic to saber-toothed tigers ("Make me sneeze! No can stay"), and Gran does not trust a baby dodo's bathroom habits. Yet when a buffalo stampede threatens the family, Cave Boy's friends prove they could be helpful around the encampment. Shea composes digital cartoons in saturated hues of iron-ore red, fiery yellow, and mossy green. His thick outlines mimic strokes of charcoal, and he pictures the iconic Cave Boy with a mop of black hair and a leopard-print off-the-shoulder onesie-he's younger and more wild-looking than the similarly single-minded prehistoric hero of Jeremy Tankard's Me Hungry (2008). If Sauer's humor basically depends upon caveman-pidgin English jokes, Cave Boy's quest (and Shea's in-your-face artwork) will resonate with readers. Ages 3-7.
