Now in board book! An inventive Stone Age boy takes matters into his own hands in a humorous, satisfying story for every young child who wants something NOW. (Ages 3-6)

"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.
Jeremy Tankard worked as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator before embarking on a career as a children’s book author and illustrator. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, he now lives in Toronto, Canada.
