'Mixing historical fact with fiction, these books provide both an insightful and informative read... Thoroughly enjoyable' SCOTT EVANS, THE READER TEACHER (@MrEPrimary)
A fast-paced Stone Age adventure from the best-selling author of Horrible Histories.
17,300 years ago. Lascaux, France.
Willow isn't the strongest or fastest in his tribe, he is careful and clever. But that's not what matters to the other boys. All they care about who is the best hunter, and who can provide meat for the tribe. So when the brawny and brash Bull takes over as the tribe's chief, it's going to take all of Willow's wits to survive.
An exciting tale based on real historical and archaeological evidence, this story is full of Terry Deary's imaginative style and dry wit. With helpful reading notes to extend learning, this book is the perfect springboard for further study of the Stone Age under the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum.
