Long, long ago--even before "once upon a time"--when people lived in caves, and woolly mammoths and saber-tooth tigers roamed the land, communication generally meant a few grunts and a couple of bonk bonks on the head with a big club for emphasis. But what if a young caveboy suddenly began pulling words out of thin air and naming everything in sight? And what if a young cavegirl suddenly took those same words and began weaving them into something magical? Master storyteller William J. Brooke takes readers back to the Stone Age in this whimsical and outrageously funny spoof on the birth of language.
