Bob Shea's illustrations delightfully combine the style of ancient cave paintings with childlike doodles, offering the story his trademark sense of playfulness.

The domestication process has begun! Me Want Pet! is the slightly silly, epic journey of Cave Boy as he searches for the perfect pet. Each animal he finds though, causes some problem for the family. Similar to many parents today, his give excuses because caring for an animal takes a lot of effort. In this case though, they suddenly change their mind, after a heroic action is performed; most kids do not have this option for convincing their parents. This sudden change of heart is made more believable due to the fact that these creatures are acting more like friends than pets. Me Want Pet! is set in a time of simplicity. With thick lines and rough colouring that is reminiscent of cave paintings, this crude chalk-like art is positively prehistoric. Well-suited to the written aspect, which from the cover is apparent within the title and contributions. The usual "written by" and "illustrated by" are foregone in favour of "words" and "pictures", which immediately sets the tone as humourous before the book is even opened. Inside it continues in this manner with short sentences, and basic grammar that makes this a fun book for younger children to read out loud. Silly, and short, Me Want Pet! does not seriously look at the question of whether to get a pet or not, but does make its case in favour of children having them for the friendship that blossoms.
