Lug, Dawn of the Ice Age

How One Small Boy Saved Our Big, Dumb Species

Being banished from his clan after failing his initiation into cavemanhood is the least of Lug’s problems when signs of the ice age appear and the threat of extinction looms. Hiding his art cave from his no-nonsense father and befriending a Neanderthal and a girl from the enemy clan, this clever hero concocts a plan to save humanity, all while avoiding the dangerous sabertooth tigers that creep in the jungle. Suspenseful and smartly humorous, this novel delights with its themes of brains-over -brawn and the power of friendship. Ages eight to twelve.
