Dave's Cave

Publisher: Nosy Crow

Review

Dave the caveman has a great cave: it's got comfy rocks and green grass. Basically, the cave is perfect, except for the fact that Dave yearns for more. So he sets out to find a better cave, but soon learns that nothing is as good as the place he started with. Finally, Dave realises that his cave is perfect after all - and that there's no place like home.

Written in sparse text with "caveman" speech - 'This Dave', 'This Dave's cave' and so on - this amusing and original picture book conveys a simple idea with panache and wit. Dave is a loveable character and parents will enjoy reading his caveman voice for fun at bedtime.
