Read full description of the books Lug, Dawn of the Ice Age:A hilarious middle-grade novel about a misunderstood caveboy perfect for fans of Ice Age, Happy Feet, The Time Warp Trio, and Platypus Police Squad.
Lug is a caveboy who would rather paint than club other caveboys. The clan even mocks him, calling him "Little Slug." Like all the other caveboys, Lug must enter the contest to become the clan's next Big Man and attempt to catch the Biggest Beast--even though he would much rather spend his days painting in his secret art cave. When Lug is banished for failing to catch a jungle llama, he thinks he is alone in the world but finds others who believe in him: his clanmate Stony and a new friend, Echo, a girl from a rival clan who can talk to animals and just may be prehistory's first vegetarian/animal rights activist. Together they face even bigger challenges--Lug discovers the Ice Age is coming and he has to bring the warring clans together to save them not only from the freeze but also from a particularly unpleasant migrating pride of saber-toothed tigers. It's no help that the elders are cavemen who can't seem to get the concept of climate change through their thick skulls. With both funny, anachronistic humor, charming characters, and strong themes, Lug, Dawn of the Ice Age is sure to be a hit with many readers.

Praise for book 1:
"LUG makes the Ice Age sizzle."
#1 New York Times bestselling author of THE 39 CLUES and SWINDLE series
“This book is filled with humor but also a deeper message of learning to accept who you are and not backing down from what you are passionate about. A roaring addition for public and school libraries.”
─School Library Journal
"What a find! LUG blasts its way from prehistory to the present in a laugh-aloud-funny, big-hearted story full of smart surprises. David Zeltser's voice is fresh and witty, with some important things to say about modern life, in a delightful mix of satire and silliness. Kids and adults alike will love this book."
New York Times bestselling author of the SEVEN WONDERS series
"A great combination of humor and powerful insight."
“Following Lug as he tries to negotiate the mysteries of art, girls, changing climate, and the rowdy game of Headstone is sheer delight. Fast-paced and funny, with a heart of gold”
─Bruce Coville, Author of My Teacher is an Alien and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher
"Lug is a stone cold fun read. The talented David Zeltser spins a clever prehistoric tale of friendship and adventure, with a charming trio battling some fearsome bullies and beasts as the Ice Age dawns. The humor is as sharp as the tigers' saber teeth."
─Nathan Bransford, author of Jacob Wonderbar series and How to Write a Novel
"Any kid who's not extinct should love Lug's rough-and-tumble romp through the world of dodo birds, jungle llamas, and cavemen."
─Anne Nesbet, author of A Box of Gargoyles and The Cabinet of Earths
"David Zeltser's debut shows that courage takes many forms, and that the struggle to fit in while being true to yourself hasn’t changed much in the past million years or so."
─Barry Wolverton, author of Neversink
"David Zeltser has unthawed a glacier of a story that will melt your heart and leave you laughing out loud. Lug and his crazy cast of supporting characters deserve five caveman clubs for this hilarious saga of old traditions, dodo birds, and new beginnings."
─Crystal Allen, author of The Laura Line and How Lamar's Bad Prank Won a Bubba-Sized Trophy
