Conor's Caveman The Amazing Adventures of Ogg by Alan Nolan


Conor's Caveman The Amazing Adventures of Ogg by Alan Nolan

Life could be better for Conor Corcoran. Class bully Damian Deegan is always teasing him about being small and having no friends - when in fact Conor has the only friend he needs in Charlotte 'Charlie' Finch, the toughest girl in school. But when Conor and Charlie accidentally uncover a prehistoric man who was flash-frozen in a block of ice, life suddenly gets a bit too interesting! How long can Conor keep his huge, hairy (and rather smelly) new 'uncle' a secret from his mum, his teachers and a gang of ruthless scientists?
