Brown, Jeffrey. Lucy & Andy Neanderthal. Crown Books, 2016. $12.99. 224p. ISBN 9780385388351. Ages 8-12. P8Q8
With a focus on cave dwellers 40,000 years ago, Brown shows experiences that they might have—making tools and weapons, going on a mammoth hunt, doing cave art, and looking for their lost baby brother. Paleontologists occasionally provide factual information along with the fiction and humor of the characters with goggle eyes. A great way to discuss pre-historic times with an up-to-date brother and sister, clever Lucy and lesser abled brother Andy.
