STONE AGE, BONE AGE takes a young child on an imaginative adventure back in time - back to the stone age when people dressed in skins and hunted for woolly mammoths. Carried along by an engaging, lyrical text, we discover all about how stone age people lived, the tools they used and the food they ate, how they dressed and where they slept. Finally, we visit a magic place, deep in a cave, where beautiful paintings flicker in the torchlight and wild dancing takes place...'Stamp like stag! Dance like a bear!' and celebrate 'Stone Age, Bone Age, What a clever age!'. This book is truly unique, and an exceptional addition to the Wonderwise series from an award-winning author-illustrator team.

Mick Manning (born in Yorkshire, England, 1959) and Brita Granstrom (born in Eskilstuna, Sweden, 1969) work together as a team sharing the illustration and text. They have been producing award-winning non-fiction picture books for almost twenty years. They show that the best non-fiction for children can be scholarly, albeit with a light touch, and can have some of the imagination-stretching qualities of fiction. They are well known for their exciting performances involving readings and live drawing using overhead camera projection (often involving participation from members of the audience) all mixed with an audio-visual presentation. They appear on a regular basis at major UK book festival venues such as Bath, Cheltenham and Edinburgh International Book Festival. They have appeared at The Royal Society Science Festival and have celebrated The Big Draw at various venues including The Imperial War Museum. They have worked closely to support libraries and schools, performing voluntarily to school classes in the UK and Sweden. Most recently they visited the American Library Association Conference, Texas where they also visited a Hispanic school and libraries in the area. Many of Manning & Granstrom's books are translated into a number of languages, including Chinese, German, Greek, Danish, Japanese, Norwegian, Swedish and Slovakian. For the last 12 years Mick & Brita have created, written and illustrated a monthly 5-page gentle pre-school series called 'Max and Kate' for the critically acclaimed US children's magazine Ladybug. http://www.mickandbrita.com Selection of Franklin Watts books: The World Is Full of Babies!
