Cave Boy wants a pet more than anything. Can he find one that the whole family will agree on? Includes audio!

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, this eBook with audio makes for an ideal read-aloud for the milk-and-cookies set.
