When Mo makes friends with a little wild beast, her family are horrified – wild beasts are dangerous.

But could this wild beast save baby Babba from a hungry lynx and become a friend to the whole family?

And then what would they call him? DOG!

This delightful, heart-warming story about a Stone-Age family and the first dog is inspired by the amazing, recent discovery of a child’s footprint alongside a dog’s pawprint in the Chauvet cave in France – from 26,000 years ago!

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This engaging picture book brings the Stone Age to life... There's an illustrated Stone Age survival skills appendix that will be useful for cross-curricular teaching, the spectacularly atmospheric illustrations will provide the perfect impetus for art ideas, and literary teachers will appreciate the onomatopoeia and expressive language. Highly recommended.'  - School Reading List

"Inspired by the discovery of a child’s footprint alongside a dog’s in the Chauvet cave, this immersive, beautifully illustrated picture book tells a sweet tale of stone age family life – and a new four-footed addition." - Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian

"Bridget Marzo’s scenes of the simple hunter/gatherer lifestyle of the family group are executed in gouache, and the ochre hues employed are true to the archaeological evidence and cave paintings from 25 thousand years ago." - Red Reading Hub

"...I love the intimate sequence of Mo’s first encounter with the little wild beast and their subsequent animated frolicsome play of fetch and return of Mo’s stick. Bridget Marzo uses natural and earth colours for her illustrations with ochre predominating, adding authenticity to her portrayal of the story." - Books For Keeps
