The Lovereading4Kids comment

May 2014 Book of the Month Award-winning Simon Rickerty illustrates this deliciously dotty story. Four cavemen find a pencil and have absolutely no idea what they should do with it. After some discussion and several false starts, the cavemen come up with a creative solution that involves sausages, a very smiley sabre-toothed tiger and a racing car.


Ug-A-Lug Four Cavemen and a Prehistoric Pencil by Jill Lewis

A little boy is doodling cavemen. He gives them all names - Colin, Clive, Carlos and Flint - and then goes to get a drink. As he leaves, he accidentally knocks over his pot of pencils. And that's when something amazing happens. One of the pencils drops into his picture, where the cavemen have now come to life! What do cavemen do with a giant pencil? Make a stone-age car, of course.
