Stone Age Boy
Publisher: Walker Books
How would it feel to trip over one day and fall into a world that existed 20,000 years ago? Well, that's exactly what happens to the young boy in this book.
Far from being distressed by his experience, he makes friends with a young girl and is welcomed into her family camp where he learns how to make fire, make tools, hunt, cook and prepare animal skins - all with implements made of wood, stone and bone.
The highlight of his stay is a trip to some distant caves where he sees some amazing cave paintings, meets a ferocious bear....and falls back into the twenty first century!
This beautifully illustrated book is packed with fascinating facts about the Stone Age, presented in an accessible and interesting way. Added features include a time line and cave painting style endpapers.
