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
