Best-selling author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson has teamed up with prize-winning illustrator Emily Gravett to create a wonderfully witty story about a cheeky little Cave Baby. When the Cave Baby scribbles on the walls of his cave he is in trouble - as all babies are! Luckily, the hairy mammoth sweeps the Cave Baby off on a scary moonlit adventure before finding just the place where a creative Cave Baby can be happy!

Synopsis

Cave Baby by Julia Donaldson

A hairy mammoth takes a cheeky little baby on a thrilling ride through a moonlit landscape populated by a sabre-toothed tiger, a leaping hare, a laughing hyena and even, just maybe, by a big brown bear ...But where are they going? And what has it to do with the baby's scribblings on the cave wall?
