A funny graphic-novel series by New York Times bestselling author Aaron Reynolds!

His grandpa invented fire. His dad invented the wheel. How will Caveboy Dave leave his mark?

Dave Unga-Bunga has always been more scrawny than brawny. This is a major problem when your village expects you to become a meat-bringer. At age twelve, all young cave-people must stalk through the eerie mushroom forests for a prehistoric beast the village can feast on. Dave would much rather invent stuff for a better life, though—like underwear to make loincloths less itchy and cutlery to make eating less filthy. Can Dave save his group by inventing the perfect defense against a bloodthirsty pokeyhorn? Or will he MEET HIS DOOM?  

First in a new series, More Scrawny Than Brawny delivers irresistible characters, big thrills, and even bigger laughs.

When I first saw this book, I thought it was your average, run of the mill, prehistoric fiction book. But when I finished it, I knew that this was a book that I would reread over and over again! In this book, Caveboy Dave, dreams to be a big time engineer. But when he and his friends are thrown into the wild, expected to kill 6 deadly beasts, he is hesitant to go. Will he come back victorious? Or will he suffer dreaded defeat? You'll have to read to find out! I would definitely recommend this book to a friend who loves engineering, or one who just loves a good laugh. This was a book I loved, and I'm sure you'll love it too!

I luv it

I really loved everything about this book. The author was able to put goofiness into the story by making it a cave boy using the stuff of today. I also like how the illustrator drew the characters throughout the book. It's comic book style and the characters are fun and goofy looking. It's mostly about a boy who has to participate in a group activity with his community.

I like this book because it had a lot of pictures to go with the writing. Sometimes too much writing can bore me. This is one of my favorite books. Dave protects his friends. The same way i protect my friends.
