Caveboy Dave by Aaron Reynolds and Phil McAndrew 239 pg is a pleasant surprise rampant with gross out and clever humor Even though its audience is children, it does not treat them as if they are stupid I had not expected much from this book, but it has earned a new fan Dave is a loveable but, of course, misunderstood inventor, who comes from a long line of cavemen inventors During the caveman equivalent of a coming of age ceremony, he tries to find himself and not get killed I enjoyed the cast of characters and actually laughed a few times I will be reading the sequel Ook geschikt voor vegetari rs grappig streesboek voor jongens en meiden vanaf 9 jaar. A New Graphic Novel Series By New York Times Bestselling Author Aaron Reynolds His Grandpa Invented Fire His Dad Invented The Wheel How Will Caveboy Dave Leave His Mark Dave Unga Bunga Has Always Been Scrawny Than Brawny This Is A Major Problem When Your Village Expects You To Become A Meat Bringer At Age Twelve, All Young Cave People Must Stalk Through The Eerie Mushroom Forests For A Prehistoric Beast The Village Can Feast On Dave Would Much Rather Invent Stuff For A Better Life, Though Like Underwear To Make Loincloths Less Itchy And Cutlery To Make Eating Less Filthy Can Dave Save His Group By Inventing The Perfect Defense Against A Bloodthirsty Pokeyhorn Or Will He MEET HIS DOOM It was ok not as good as I had hoped Caveboy Dave has a good head on his shoulders Like his forefathers, he can create new inventions Sadly his own father doesn t think they quite live up to the family standard, and so he sends off his son to participate in the village s coming of age ceremony The Baby Go Boom requires all twelve year olds to go out and hunt one of the big six, thus proving themselves contributors to the community Dave though, well he s rather scrawny, and he knows he has no chance During the course of the hunt, he and the others, learn that what you learn in school does not equate to practical experience, and, that there is than one way to achieve the same ends These lessons are woven cleanly into a very funny graphic novel The humour is a mixture of wit and sarcasm, and low brow comedy, thus appealing to a fair range of people McAndrew s naive style also elicits quite a few laughs, and nicely fits with the setting Dave and friends have already proved their worth to the community, so it will be interesting to see what they do next. There is an event coming up at work where I ll be discussing 4 books with kids ages 6 This is one of the 4 books I wasn t sure that I wanted to read it but decided to read it at work during breaks since I needed to know something about it It aggravates me that parents and grandparents think that graphic novels have no place in a child s hands I ve been told that there is no substance to these types of books and that there are way too many pictures I agree that there are a lot of pictures Graphic novel says is the give away Let kids who want to read graphic novels read them Now I ll get down off my soap box.Aaron Reynolds did a great job with this book Dave will soon be leaving on his adventure into adulthood He, along with 4 other children his age, must take down and bring back some ferocious beasts for food or not come back at all Dave doesn t want to be a hunter He wants to invent He invents a forf and some underwear but nobody appreciates them so he must go hunt While out in the wild, he proves himself as an inventor and a great mind This is fun read that I would recommend for 6 10 year olds I found myself giggling through it I ve seen that kids who like The Last Kids on Earth and the Hilo series would enjoy these I would like to add that kids who like Dav Pilkey and Jeff Kinney would also enjoy Caveboy Dave.I would definitely recommend this book to my customers.

Having personally taken Aaron Reynolds out to dinner when he did an author visit at my school I can attest to the fact that he is a genuine nice guy who is truly funny This book exemplifies that and brings excitement and humor to reading that will for sure be enjoyed by the intended audience It was fun seeing the creative ideas he came up with for caveman explanations for items and although the book was written for humor it also had a great message to go along with it. Enjoyable and off beat It was fun imagining an inventor in caveman times The premise was clever, and the characters entertaining Kids are going to enjoy the series.
