A little boy is doodling cavemen. He gives them all names - Colin, Clive, Carlos and Flint - and then goes to get a drink. As he leaves, he accidentally knocks over his pot of pencils. And that's when something amazing happens. One of the pencils drops into his picture, where the cavemen have now come to life!What do cavemen do with a giant pencil? Make a stone-age car, of course. A hilarious book illustrated by Simon Rickerty, winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013.
