An inventive Stone Age boy takes matters into his own hands in a humorous, satisfying story for every young child who wants something NOW.
"Me hungry!" the boy pleads. "Me busy," say his preoccupied mom and dad. So the boy decides to go hunting, setting his sights on an elusive rabbit, a prickly porcupine, a too-mean tiger, and finally, a like-minded mammoth who’s more than happy to help. With comical, energetic illustrations and a simple, repetitive text, this child-friendly tale will have little listeners fully engaged right up to the funny final twist.
Aaron Reynolds works full time as a speaker/presenter and teacher. He has written many great books for kids, including Carnivores. He lives in Fox River, Illinois.
