Gr 1–4—In this humorous new series set in prehistoric times, Caveboy teams up with his friend Mags for a day of high jinks. In The Adventures of Caveboy, after Caveboy thumps his club around on bushes and rocks, it unexpectedly breaks. Fortunately, Mags helps him find a new one. Caveboy then decides it would be fun to challenge Mags to a race. Things take an unexpected turn when she gets lost. Caveboy knows he must locate her because Mags is his best friend. In Caveboy Is Bored!, the prehistoric protagonist is at loose ends and must come up with a way to entertain himself. Luckily, Caveboy realizes that his little sister, who always seemed so annoying, is finally old enough to be a playmate. Together they climb, chase, and even tease a saber-toothed cat. After what turns out to be a great day of fun, Mom and Dad tell the siblings it's time for bed. However, there's still excitement to be had because Sister is not quite ready to sleep and Caveboy must figure out a way to get her to settle down.
VERDICT With short chapters, appealing illustrations, and simple story lines, this series is just right for brand-new readers.
