Lug: Blast from the North

By David Zeltser

Another hilarious middle-grade novel follows the adventures of Ice Age cave boy Lug and his friends on a new series of wacky adventures, this is a worthy follow-up to Lug: Dawn of the Ice Age.

Lug the cave boy has become a hero to his clan. (So let's keep those nightmares he's been having--and his sudden skittishness around most anlmals--under wraps, shall we?) But with a giant glacier moving toward the village at surprising speed, on course to crush the whole settlement, Lug and his friends have a new crisis to solve. Maybe Blast, the mysterious northern boy who lives on the glacier, can help them. Or maybe it will be up to Lug to save the day again, whether he's ready for it or not.

  • Offers the same brand of zany fun that delighted readers and reviewers of the first book, with a fresh plot full of new twists and turns
  • Fast-paced, humorous story will appeal kids looking for a quick, light read on thelmportant topic of climate change.
  • Caught the notice of Al Gore and lends itself to environmental and climate change awareness discussions.
