The Lovereading4Kids comment

Can a scrawny caveman turn a giant woolly mammoth into delicious pie? Both sides gather their friends as they square up for a major confrontation. Who do you think will win? Jeanne Willis’s rhyming text charts the plotting and planning before the battle while Tony Ross’s illustrations brilliantly capture the greedy cave men and their formidable foes.

Synopsis

Mammoth 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.

Reviews

A dream team of writer and illustrator! The Times Another dollop of chaotic fun from the pens of Willis and Ross ... Jeanne Willis again demonstrates her wonderful facility with words Armadillo Simple and expressive illustrations add to the tale told in simple words with a pleasing rhythm. There is plenty of repetition and rhyme which makes this ideal for young children just beginning to read. Carousel A delightful romp, beautifully complemented by Ross's expressive illustrations Daily Telegraph The lively rhyming text is perfect for joining in with, and Ross's comical illustrations are full of humour and personality ... Ideal for reading out loud. Booktrust
