Synopsis

Tek The Modern Cave Boy by Patrick McDonnell

Tek is a cave boy in love with tech: his tablet, videogames, phone, and TV keep him deep in his cave, glued to his devices, day in and day out. He never sees his friends or family anymore - and his ability to communicate has devolved to just one word: UGH ! Can anyone in the village convince Tek to unplug and come outside into the big, beautiful world?A distinctive package and design cleverly evokes the experience of using an electronic device that eventually shuts down... and after a magic page turn, Tek (and the reader) reconnects with the real world.
