Ug is a stone age boy who longs for soft trousers instead of those made of stone. In this comic strip version of the prehistoric period, everything is made of stone – clothes, the sheets and even Ug’s football. Ug has lots of ideas about how their lives might be improved and his ruminations are wittily expressed in both words and pictures. Readers will certainly know what an anachronism is by the time they have finished this book!
