Now in paperback!
A hilarious middle-grade novel about a misunderstood caveboy perfect for fans of "Ice Age," "Happy Feet," "The Time Warp Trio," and "Platypus Police Squad."
In Lug's Stone Age clan, a caveboy becomes a caveman by catching a jungle llama and riding it against the rival Boar Rider clan in the Big Game. The thing is, Lug has a forbidden, secret art cave and would rather paint than smash skulls. Because Lug is different, his clan's Big Man is out to get him, he's got a pair of bullies on his case--oh, and the Ice Age is coming.
When Lug is banished frrom the clan for failing to catch a jungle llama, he's forced to team up with Stony, a silent Neanderthal with a very expressive unibrow, and Echo (a Boar Rider girl!). In a world experiencing some serious global cooling, these misfits must protect their feuding clans from the impending freeze and a particularly unpleasant pride of migrating tigers.

"A prehistoric tale kids will devour like T. Rex on a brontosaurus bone!" --Patrick Carman, "New York Times" best-selling author of "Floors," "The Land of Elyon," and "Skeleton Creek"
"Fred Flintstone would feel right at home in this light-as-pumice comedy." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
