Acclaimed author and illustrator James Mayhew brings us a lyrical, lovingly drawn picture book, set in prehistoric times, about a curious boy and the wondrous world around him.
A little cave boy wakes up in his cold cave and wishes he were warm. The warmest place for Boy is in bed with his mother and father, but he doesn't want to share. Instead, he wants to find a warm place all for himself!
So Boy goes off exploring the world outside his cave. But the spaces of warmth Boy finds all belong to creatures who are unwilling to share with him! As Boy wanders on, he soon learns that where he truly belongs is with his own family---in a circle of warmth, safety, and love.

PreSchool-Grade 2–A small caveboy seeks a warm, comfortable place on a cool, cloudy morning. His parents suggest he share their bed, but he wants a snug space all to himself. He goes off in search of "warm" and encounters several animals, including a saber-toothed tiger, a woolly mammoth, and a dinosaur. Each one discourages the boy from sharing theirspot. Finally, a fiery volcano convinces the lad to head home and he realizes that sharing a bed with his parents is the coziest, most secure, and best place for him. The engaging, full-spread illustrations reveal a tiny, thatch-haired child made even smaller compared with the large animals and wide-open spaces of his homeland. A gentle lesson in learning to share.–Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
