Patrick McDonnell Announces ‘Tek’ Book Tour Dates

Books & Art News & Events

Tek: The Modern Cave Boy Book lovers of all ages are invited to meet MUTTS creator Patrick McDonnell during his upcoming Tek: The Modern Cave Boy book tour!

Tek, scheduled for release on October 4, is an imaginative story about a prehistoric boy’s obsession with technology — and his friends’ efforts to convince him to “unplug” and come outside to play. The book’s distinctive design features a tablet-shaped hardcover, a “password screen,” and a battery life indicator. Intended for ages 4-8 (but interesting and relatable enough for the entire family), Tek has already received critical accolades, including a starred review from Publishers Weekly.

Patrick will meet with readers, share excerpts from Tek, and sign copies of the book during a month-long, six-state tour that kicks off on Tuesday, October 4. (He’ll also be signing copies of the brand-new The Little Gift of Nothing book on all tour dates.)

Eager to meet Patrick? He’d love to meet you, too! Simply stop in and say “hello” at any of the following events. Unable to attend in person, but still want a signed copy of Tek: The Modern Cave Boy? Visit to reserve yours today!
