Cave Baby

A hairy mammoth takes a cheeky little baby on a thrilling ride through a moonlit landscape populated by a sabre-toothed tiger, a leaping hare, a laughing hyena and even – just maybe – a big brown bear! But where are they going? And what has it got to do with the baby’s scribblings on the cave wall? Two of the world’s most celebrated picture book creators join forces for the first time in this stunning rhyme, written by the internationally bestselling author of The Gruffalo, and illustrated by Emily Gravett. Exuberant, colourful and truly original, Cave Baby is a visual feast and a joy to read aloud.
