About the Author
Praise For Me Want Pet!…
"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
