“Cave life is such a pain!” the cover exclaims. Indeed.
Some reasons why I like this book:
- The sibling rivalry and family dynamics. If you’ve read Jeffrey Brown’s Jedi Academy series, you’ll know what I mean.
- Humans and Neanderthals together in a graphic novel. Excellent.
- Cartoon archaeologists.They drop in to give us facts and interesting information. You could put them in just about any graphic novel, and I’d read it. (Side note – when can I be a cartoon library worker in a book?) I’m not the target demographic, but I think nerdster kids will love this.
- There is actually a reference to Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer. Again, you could mention him in about any book, and I’d read it. I’m not from your time. I don’t understand your ways.
You, Jeffrey Brown, understand this time and your readers’ ways. Delightful. And there’s more to come!
