Reynolds, Aaron Caveboy Dave, 241 pgs. Illustrated by Phil McAndrew GRAPHIC NOVEL Viking, 2016. $20.99 Content: Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG.
Dave comes from a long line of inventors, but nobody seems to appreciate his inventions (such as a fork) in his caveman community. As Dave has hit the age where he has to prove himself, him and his friends are supposed to hunt one of the Big Six deadly animals and bring home food for their people. Dave finds that his inventive mind might help him and his friends more than brawn.
This book is hilarious and I loved the character Dave. There is some underwear humor and it shows the cavemen eating raw animals which is gross. The illustrations are funny and it has some heartwarming moments.
