1 caveman + 26 letters = wild and wacky fun!

The popular prehistoric ABC romp is now a board book—and just right for the youngest readers. When a caveman and a squirrel try to grab an ACORN for dinner, a big brown BEAR chases them into a CAVE. But then a DINOSAUR comes out and goes after them all! What's going to happen? The slapstick hijinks go from “A” all the way to some cuddly, friendly “ZZZZZs” and a sweet goodnight.

 

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In an abecedarian romp told with a single word for each letter, an acorn incites a mad dash between members of the prehistoric food-chain: squirrel chases acorn; caveman (who could be Jerry Garcia's distant ancestor) chases squirrel; bear chases caveman, and a dopey dinosaur looks like the top predator—but is really a softie. "Ice" introduces a new episode, in which the caveman tries to free a purple animal from a block of ice ("Jump" "Kick"). After the caveman inadvertently discovers the "X-Ray" (via lightning strike) and gets knocked out, a tearful lick from the dinosaur awakens him ("Yay!"). Trasler's slapstick cartoons offer a fun, irreverent take on prehistory. Ages 3–5. (Aug.)

A really enjoyable romp through the stone age, in simple ABC words telling the whole story. Highly recommended!

This is more than just a simple alphabet book; it actually tells a story. Children will enjoy following along with the illustrations and being able to tell the story themselves. Very clever series of events told through bright and appealing illustrations.
