Charming story of a stone-age family who discover the first dog – inspired by real prehistoric cave art.

Mo lives in a cave with Ma and Pa, Grumma, Gruppa and baby Babba, in the Stone Age. One day Mo hears a ‘yip’ coming from a bush. She knows that wild beasts are dangerous but this one is in trouble, with a thorn in its paw. Mo takes out the thorn and the little beast becomes her friend. They play together all day. But Mo’s family are horrified – surely the wild beast will hurt baby Babba. They chase away the little animal – and then, disaster! Babba is missing. Has the wild beast taken him – or will Mo’s friend save Baby Babba from a hungry lynx? By the end of the day, the whole Stone Age family has a new friend and they call it… DOG!

This delightful story for young children is inspired by an astonishing recent discovery in the famous Chauvet Cave in France. The footprint of a young child has been found in the cave, with the paw-print of a dog beside it – from 26,000 years ago!
