Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3–6—A new graphic novel series from the author of the Caldecott Honor picture book Creepy Carrots. At age 12, all the young cave people must use the skills they've been taught in school to hunt a prehistoric beast that will then feed the whole village. Dave comes from a long line of inventors, and though his inventions tend to fall into the category of making life more comfortable as opposed to the groundbreaking work of family members who discovered fire or invented the wheel, he still believes that his endeavors will save him from having to participate in the ritual. When Dave's invention of underwear fails to draw praise, he heads into the eerie mushroom forests with his classmates. Even the bravest students realize that they are ill prepared, but Dave's quick thinking saves the day many times over. Fans of Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" series will find much to love here. Panels are big and usually formatted four to a page, with two to three speech bubbles per panel. The story is well paced and balances backstory with action and problem-solving. Put this on the shelf between Jorge Aguirre's "Chronicles of Claudette" series and Ben Hatke's "Zita the Spacegirl" books. VERDICT A humorous look at life in the Stone Age that incorporates STEM themes through the interests and achievements of its main character; a highly recommended purchase for school and public library collections.—Samantha Lumetta, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH --This text refers to the hardcover edition.



"Caveboy Dave is a hilarious new graphic novel series . . . imagine a prehistoric version of Wimpy Kid meets Captain Underpants."
Boys' Life

"Nonstop action, belly laughs, and stabby cats. What's not to love?"
—Victoria Jamieson, author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling and Newbery Honor–winning Roller Girl

"Fast-paced and funny." 
—Mo O’Hara, author of the New York Times bestselling Zombie Goldfish series

"Bright colors and animated, exaggeratedly doofy characters buoy the rollicking action, mixing intrigue and lots of giggles... A lively series opener." 
—Kirkus Reviews 

"Put this on the shelf between Jorge Aguirre’s Chronicles of Claudette series and Ben Hatke’s Zita the Spacegirl books." 
—School Library Journal

"A delightfully entertaining tale about discovering one’s true calling...Dave’s first adventure sets a high bar for future volumes." 
—Publishers Weekly

"Outlandishly funny."
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Packed with chuckle-worthy anachronisms andplenty of Captain Underpants–brand humor, Reynolds and McAndrew’s story of troglodyte tweens is ideal for the middle-grade set."
—Booklist --This text refers to the paperback edition.
