Dave's Cave

Author: Frann Preston-Gannon
Illustrator: Frann Preston-Gannon
Publisher: Nosy Crow

Stone Age Dave seek new cave. Will he find one he like? The seemingly simple staccato text, omitting auxiliary verbs and definite and indefinite articles, is surprisingly hard to imitate. It makes for humour and could lead children to speculate about why the author has chosen to write it in this apparently ungrammatical way. A fun book to link with the history curriculum!
