A little boy is doodling cavemen. He gives them all names - Colin, Clive, Carlos and Flint - and then goes to get a drink. As he leaves, he accidentally knocks over his pot of pencils. And that's when something amazing happens. One of the pencils drops into his picture, where the cavemen have now come to life!

What do cavemen do with a giant pencil? Make a stone-age car, of course. A hilarious book illustrated by Simon Rickerty, winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013.

My kids and I all agreed this book was awesome! It's a very lively book about 4 cavemen and what happens when they set to work deconstructing a pencil into a car. We loved the drawing style, the randomness of the story and in particular the cavemen language! My kids insisted on repeating and acting out every word the cavemen spoke "mugga hugga dumma dumma" etc it's certainly not written for a quiet read but it definitely captured their imagination!

My 6 year old thinks this book is hilarious. It's about some cavemen who encounter various disasters when their story comes to life. It makes my son giggle when they use their funny caveman language from time to time - somehow it just seems to capture the moment of the story even though the caveman words don't mean anything! Be borrowed this book from the library and liked to so much we bought it

This is a quirky book about four cavemen that come out of a kid’s drawing and come to life. It’s a fun mechanic that made us laugh. It’s all a bit random and doesn’t go anyway but kept us interested nonetheless. The cavemen speak in cave language which my daughter though was absolutely hilarious.
