Stone Age Boy

By Satoshi Kitamura
Illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura

Travel 20,000 years into the past and discover what life as a caveman was like in this prehistoric picture book by a prodigiously talented artist.

One day a little boy is walking along when he trips, stumbles and falls ... into the Stone Age! He meets a girl his own age and her tribe, and learns all about their way of life. He watches them make tools, clothes and weapons. He sees how they hunt, fish, cook, celebrate – and even how they paint on the walls of caves. But when a furious cave bear attacks, he wakes up back in his own time where everyone tells him it was only a dream. But was it?

  • Award-winning artist Satoshi Kitamura's warm watercolour illustrations populate this witty and informative look at Stone Age life.
  • Features endpapers covered in cave painting-style illustrations of prehistoric animals and a factual information section containing a timeline, an index and an endnote from the author, useful for further study.
