Product Details

Praise

” . . . Elliott’s tex, written with the awkward simplicity of movie “Indians” and cavemen, is hilariously effective and also apt to tickle and be understood by very young readers: ‘This Orq. He live in cave. He carry club. He cave boy.’ Nichols’ digitally colored pencil illustrations are simple and slyly humorous. Offbeat and winning.” — Kirkus Reviews

” . . . Nichols’s hilarious tongue-in-cheek illustrations provide a perfect counterpoint to Elliott’s terse, faux cave-man vernacular. Drawn in pencil but digitally colored, each spread enhances the story with comic antics by Woma, Orq, and a family of prehistoric birds. . . A fun and winsome addition to any collection.” — School Library Journal

“Elliott’s (In the Sea) humorously blunted, primitive language and gently shaded pencil drawings from Nichols (Maple) turn what might have been a predictable story about a boy’s attempt to domesticate a woolly mammoth into a sparkling comic monologue. . . Rereadings will be clamored for, and the story will probably bring out the inner caveperson of everyone in the house.” — Publishers Weekly
