Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lois Rubin Gross
Ogg and Bob, the silliest cavemen since Fred and Barney, have a new pet mammoth. These clueless cave dudes are like prehistoric Fools of Chelm as they show how cave paintings might have been created, demonstrate how not to play with a pet mammoth, and demonstrate why you should never yell, "Here, kitty, kitty," to a sabertooth tiger. It is hysterical fun and, in this easy chapter book format, should have early readers clamoring for more and more. The visuals are funny enough to work as a picture book, if the format were larger. The hide-in-plain sight game with the pet mammoth, Mug, will have young readers screaming at the foolishness of the dim-witted cave guys who try to look for their pet under a rock when the object of their search is sitting on the boulder. The chapter about cave art may actually teach young artists a thing or two about studying life models, but the mud painting techniques originated by the mammoth (who is clearly the most talented creature in the cave) will inspire more giggles than Van Gogh. Finally, trying to decide who is Mug's best friend by treating him like a big dog will get just the reaction it is meant to get—laughs and some good reading practice as a bonus. These stone-aged pals are destined to be very popular with the Amelia Bedelia set, and might even make some reluctant readers persevere to find out what the cave guys are up to next.

Gr 1–3—Ogg and Bob, two cavemen with a pet mammoth, like food, rocks, and mud, but not baths, and definitely not saber-toothed tigers. The book is a series of vignettes that includes an introduction to the characters and stories revolving around hygiene, creating cave art, and a debate over the mammoth's best friend. The author attempts to use "caveman-speak" throughout the story; unfortunately, there are jarring instances of the dialogue slipping into normal speech. The illustrations are colorful; in the first chapter, they provide visual jokes for readers as Mug the Mammoth tries to hide. This easy chapter book is mildly humorous and likely to appeal to fans of slapstick, but it's not essential for most collections.—Nicole Waskie-Laura, Chenango Forks Elementary, Binghamton, NY
