I bought this book as a first birthday present for a little boy who isn't crazy about books and chose it because he won't sit still for a book with too many words. He laughs every time it is read. Even though there are very few words, the book tells a cute story that adults and children can enjoy.

Loved this children's storybook. The text is limited to pared down dialogue, telling the story of a caveman toddler who is hungry when everyone is too busy for him. It features interesting graphics with vibrant colours. I would definitely recommend it!

GREAT BOOK! Jan. 3 2010
By S.W. - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.
Good for Little Readers Nov. 5 2011
By Abby - Published on
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.
[...]Book Review May 21 2010
By Spicy Mamma - Published on
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!

Simple, engaging story is a winner Feb. 24 2009
By K. Cassidy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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.
