The Lovereading comment:
An hilarious hairy adventure at the time of the woolly mammoth. Can the very thin, very hungry caveman ever get the fat mammoth and turn him into a delicious – and filling – pie? Mammoth Pie is hard to get but following the caveman’s attempts to do is fun for all.
SynopsisMammoth Pie by Jeanne Willis
On top of a mountain there lived a fat mammoth. Down in the valley there lived a thin caveman. The caveman was hungry. He saw the mammoth and licked his lips. But a mouthwatering Mammoth Pie turns out to be more difficult to come by than the caveman could ever imagine.
ReviewsToddlers can't resist Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross's uproarious tales ... a delightful romp, beautifully complemented by Ross's expressive illustrations -- Lorna Bradbury Daily Telegraph 20080315 Ross's bug-eyed mammoth is irresistible. Glasgow Herald 20080216 Extremely funny verse and perfect illustrations to match make this vintage Willis and Ross. I can't help smiling every time I think of it. The Bookseller 20070817 Another dollop of chaotic fun from the pens of Willis and Ross ... Jeanne Willis again demonstrates her wonderful facility with words -- John Dougherty Armadillo 20080306 told in verse that rolls off the tongue - the sort of verse young children can't wait to join in with ... Ross's witty artwork conveys it all wonderfully.
