This cave kid needs more than a stick or a rock for a friend—he wants a pet! But Dad is allergic to sabertooth tigers and Mom thinks woolly mammoths are just too big. So Cave Boy heads out on a quest through jungles and across grasslands in search of an animal the family will let him keep. But the surprise he discovers may help him get many more new friends than he ever thought he would have! The silly and simple caveman dialogue makes for funny, easy reading in a book filled with feelings and situations many kids will relate to.
