Dave's Cave

by Frann Preston-Gannon
£6.99   paperback  Nosy Crow Ltd (2016)


"[Frann Preston-Gannon’s] latest, Dave’s Cave, has all the hallmarks of a bedtime classic. Dave is a caveman. Dave likes his cave, but one day thinks that if he went out into the world he might find an even better place to live. So, club in hand, the bearded and leopard-skinned adventurer sets off. It’s Goldilocks and the Three Bears for an upwardly mobile Neanderthal: one cave is too small, one cave too large, one cave has a scary sabre-tooth tiger and one a stroppy Neanderthal room-mate who “not like sharing”.
The collage-style illustrations are bright, simple and funny, and the text punchy and short, a “Me Tarzan, You Jane” demotic guaranteed to have your children laughing: “Dave not happy. Dave wide awake... Dave want new cave.” It’s both feather light and deeply profound about the human desire to find something better – a better toy, a better house, with a garden and maybe a shed – but also a poem to the joy of what is known, loved and a bit crumpled at the edges."
