The Lovereading4Kids comment

Follow Littlenose the caveboy, where things are never calm for long in this naughty caveboy's world. Littlenose is a charming character with an irrepressible sense of adventure and Two-Eyes, his pet mammoth (and partner in crime) in this collection comprising fifteen stories, perfectly pitched at children who just starting to read independently. Lots of prehistoric fun will ensure they're hooked!


Littlenose Collection: The Explorer by John Grant

The Neanderthal winter lasts for months and months; it's a great time to go exploring. With ice, snow, mist and fog all around, there's lots of fun to be had - from sledging and hunting to rescuing strange tribespeople from the snow. But Littlenose's curiosity also leads him into trouble - somehow he just can't seem to steer clear of it!
