Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-K—Sometimes parents are too preoccupied to help their children get a snack—even in prehistoric times. When a young cave boy tells his parents, "Me hungry!" all he gets in response is a loud, "Me busy!" What's a Stone Age boy to do? He hunts, of course. But a rabbit eludes him, a porcupine is too sharp, and a tiger is too mean to tangle with. A hungry mammoth is the perfect catch—the new friends find food together. Tankard's bold, thick black lines, done in ink and digital media, outline the youngster and his many choices for a snack, allowing the characters to jump off the monochromatic pages. Minimal but effective text perfectly complements the expressive prehistoric family. This energetic story comes full circle with a humorous punch line that will make all children with busy parents laugh out loud.—Kristine M. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY

My toddler and I fell in love with this book when he was only nine months old and heard it a library story time. Now, four months later, we still read it all the time. The text is simple but the message is timeless and the illustrations are eye-catching and humorous. This is not only a staple in our library but will be a book I will give to friends as they start reading to their little ones.

By Abby on November 5, 2011
Format: Paperback
"Me Hungry" is a cute, witty story with unusual, interesting pictures that I think most young readers will enjoy. It has a real comic book feel to it, which is something fun that most early books don't offer. I gave the book four stars instead of five for two reasons. First, because the book's plot relies on caveman dialogue and illustrations, it's difficult for an adult to read to a child. I bought this to read to my 9-month-old, and while she really enjoys the pictures, it's hard for me to convey some of the action (like running away from a tiger and bonking into a mammoth) without making sound effects or over-explaining. I think I'll save it for her to read on her own in a few years. Second, I don't like the author's choice to introduce the main character's name three-quarters of the way through the story. This is a nit-picky point, but I felt awkward bonding with the caveboy and his adventures and then finding out at the end that I should have been thinking of him as Edwin the whole time.

Overall, I expect this will be a big hit with the early reader crowd.

Format: Paperback
Me Hungry is a simple, but original children's book. All illustrations are roughly drawn with pen and then digitally enhanced, giving the illustrations a crisp, yet handmade look.

In Me Hungry! , Edwin is very hungry, but his mother and father are `too busy'. He begins to explore other, rather difficult means of getting his food, but Edwin isn't having any luck. This all changes when he meets an unlikely friend who shares something in common with Edwin; he is hungry too! The two pair up and find themselves `too busy' for dinner.

I would highly recommend this comical book for children from age 2 to about age 7. Be prepared to read it over, and over, and over again!

We actually found this book at our local library. The bright, goofy illustrations caught my eye, so we brought it home. My 18 month old son loves this book. He points and smiles at the rabbit and the porcupine, laughs out loud when Edwin runs into the mammoth, and loves to mimic the few sparse words that make up the story. Does it stand up to repeated readings? Yes, every night for almost 6 weeks, and neither my husband nor I have been tempted to hide it rather than read it again, unlike some other books I could name.

We sought this book out at the library after falling completely in love with Grumpy Bird. There's a lot less to it, as far as words -- just a few per page. But it made my 3 year old laugh out loud... and the pictures are just as whimsical and fun (especially the adorable mammoth). If you're new to Jeremey Tankard, I'd certainly steer you to Grumpy Bird and Boo Hoo Bird first. But if you just can't get enough, like us, Me Hungry is very cute... and much beloved by the preschool set.

I am so glad I found his books! Grumpy Bird is an instant hit with 3 year olds, Boo Hoo Bird is super sweet, and this book is funny! We loved the caveman-like speech and illustrations to go with it! I read this first and giggled, then read it to the 5 and 4 year old I watch, both wouldn't put it down. I plan to read it to my preschoolers in the fall! I recommend all of his books!

Me Hungry! is my 3 year olds FAVORITE book.
It lets him be a being who has needs, overcomes obstacles, gets tough and learns independence, cooperates with others and becomes self reliant! WOW.
You can read this one a million times and never get tired of it.

Tankard's best!

This is a sweet story of a young caveman boy's attempt to get something to eat. My 4 year old son finds this book very amusing. He giggles through most of the book. We've only had this book for a few weeks now and he's asked me to read it almost every night.
