Me Want Pet!
by Tammi Sauer
illustrated by Bob Shea
Picture Book
* * * Stars (Pretty good)

Cave Boy really wants a pet, but none of the animals he brings home to the family cave is acceptable. They all hang around, however, and when a stampede threatens the family’s home the animals save Cave Boy from certain death! After that, they are welcomed with open arms – despite size, allergies, and house-breaking issues. Cute and funny, with bold stylized-scribbled, cave-people-like illustrations. Excerpt: “Me want pet!” “Ug,” grunted Mama. “He too big. Where he sleep?”
