Caveboy Dave by Aaron Reynolds and Phil McAndrew (239 pg) is a pleasant surprise rampant with gross-out and clever humor. Even though its audience is children, it does not treat them as if they are stupid. I had not expected much from this book, but it has earned a new fan. Dave is a loveable but, of course, misunderstood inventor, who comes from a long-line of cavemen inventors. During the caveman equivalent of a coming-of-age ceremony, he tries to find himself and not get killed. I enjoyed the cast of characters and actually laughed a few times. I will be reading the sequel!
