Dave’s Rock by Frann Preston-Gannon. Nosy Crow (Candlewick), 2019. $16. 9781536202717
BUYING ADVISORY: Pre-K - OPTIONAL
AUDIENCE APPEAL: LOW
Caveman Dave and his friend Jon are in a contest to see whose rock is bigger, taller, prettier, etc., until they decide that there is something better than can make with their rocks.
This follow-up to Dave’s Cave doesn’t quite match the charm of Dave’s Cave. Dave and Jon come off as braggarts and of low intelligence – especially compared to the animals shown on the final pages.
