Take a look inside Dave’s Rock!

Next January we’ll be publishing an INCREDIBLY exciting new picture book: Dave’s Rock, the highly anticipated follow-up to the hilarious and hugely acclaimed Dave’s Cave, written and illustrated by Frann Preston-Gannon. And today you can take a very first look inside the new book!

Dave’s Cave was named one of the best children’s books of 2016 by The Telegraph, who wrote, “Dave’s Cave, has all the hallmarks of a bedtime classic … The collage-style illustrations are bright, simple and funny, and the text punchy and short, a “Me Tarzan, You Jane” demotic guaranteed to have your children laughing … It’s both feather light and deeply profound about the human desire to find something better – a better toy, a better house, with a garden and maybe a shed – but also a rough-hewn poem to the joy of what is known, loved and a bit crumpled at the edges.”

In this funny and stylishly illustrated follow-up, two loveable cavemen endeavour to make their rocks the very best they can – inventing, in the process, something really rather remarkable. It’s another brilliantly funny, clever picture book – PERFECT for reading aloud.

Here’s a look inside Dave’s Rock:
