LoveReading View on UG: Boy Genius of the Stone Age and His Search for Soft Trousers

Raymond Briggs who has created characters that are now icons for generations of children, including Fungus the Bogeyman, Father Christmas and, of course, the beloved Snowman, delves into The Stone Age with the loveable Ug.

Not impressed with life in The Stone Age: stone blankets, stone cold food, an even colder cave and, worst of all, hard stone trousers and being an inquisitive and intelligent child, Ug suggests a series of modifications to improve the quality of family life. His ideas about heating, cooking, boats, and balls that actually bounce are initially met with a hostile reaction. But with the help of his father, who slowly comes round to his son's way of thinking, Ug comes tantalisingly close to his ultimate garment goal . . .
