A brilliantly funny and fascinating look at what life was like for a child in prehistoric times!

Part of Nosy Crow's list of publishing in collaboration with the British Museum, developed in consultation with some of the world's leading experts on the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.

A kid's life in prehistoric times might sound like fun, what with all those woolly mammoths and massive stone circles, but actually life for kids could be pretty hard. In this hilarious book, written by award-winning author Chae Strathie, children will learn just how tough life really was, from living in a cave and hunting wild boar to being forced down mines to collect flint... and even eating butter kept in a bog!

Probably the first book about Prehistoric Times to feature roller skates and doughnuts, this is a must read for kids with a passion for horrible history! Brought to life with rich, humorous illustrations by super-talented Marisa Morea.

Other titles in the series include: Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, Aztec Age.

About the Author

Chae Strathie is an award-winning children's author and journalist who grew up in a tiny village surrounded by a forest in Scotland, which probably explains a lot. His first attempt at professional writing was creating a Star Wars comic at the age of seven. He sold two copies and made a total of four pence. A regular at major book festivals, Chae has toured the length and breadth of the UK and visited schools as far afield as Romania, reading his stories, acting the goat and singing silly songs about worm ice cream and beard-growing. He lives in Dundee with three annoying cats and a very old goldfish called Lazarus.
