Synopsis: Raymond Briggs?s funniest creation?the Boy Wonder of the Stone Age.
This funny, sad, yet wonderfully life-affirming story is about a misunderstood boy genius who refuses to accept the limitations of the world in which he lives. Young Ug is upwardly mobile, always on the brink of finding a better way, a nicer way of getting through life. He discovers that the fire that comes out of the sky can make dead animal bits taste terrific, but his mother thinks this is a disgusting idea and, she adds, ?Terrific? What sort of word is that? Don?t you bring language like that into this cave!? He invents the wheel but doesn?t know quite what to do with it. What he really wants is a pair of soft, warm trousers. But how many millions of years must he wait for them? Ug?s story is told in more than 100 colorful frames with speech balloons much like a graphic novel but for a younger audience. Witty footnotes explain some of the many hilarious anachronisms.
Another brilliant showcase for Raymond Briggs . . . a wholly original, sophisticated picture book.?? The Independent
?There are few picture books that can provide thought-provoking pleasure for children and adults alike, but this is an example of such a book.?? The Bookseller
