PreS-Gr 1—In this third book about the engaging cave boy, Orq and his pet woolly mammoth, Woma, find themselves with some competition as Torq and Slomo (a sloth) move into the cave next door. Torq can throw farther, climb higher, and run faster than Orq, leading everyone to think that he is #1 now. But when Torq gets injured exploring, it's Orq who invents a wheel and comes to the rescue, making him the #1 hero. The illustrations, drawn in pencil and colored digitally, add to the charm of these cave friends.
VERDICT A fun addition to any collection—especially libraries with fans of the earlier titles in the series.
