Dave’s Rock by Frann Preston-Gannon

Dave, the lovable caveman from Frann Preston-Gannon’s brilliant picture book, Dave’s Cave, is back again. This time there is a bit of competition between Dave and his friend Jon.

Dave's Rock-72705-3

Dave’s Rock is about two cavemen and their love for rocks.  Dave loves his rock and so does Jon.  They both think that their rock is bigger, taller and faster.  They realise though that they can make both of their rocks better.  The competition between Dave and Jon makes this a thoroughly entertaining read.

I absolutely loved Dave’s Cave and Dave’s Rock is just as good.  The simple text and illustrations  work so well which makes it such a great book to share one-on-one or with a group.  You can’t help but read the story just like a caveman.  The bright green cover, with Dave hugging his rock, jumps off the shelf and makes kids want to pick it up and see what’s inside.

The thing that I love the most about Frann’s books about Dave is that they have such a wide appeal.  Younger children will love Dave for his silly antics and the mistakes that he makes and older children will appreciate the way that Frann tells the story in caveman talk.  They are books that adults will enjoy just as much as the kids and won’t mind reading over and over again.

Add Dave’s Cave and Dave’s Rock to your collection now for guaranteed laughs.
