Signed ‘Tek: The Modern Cave Boy’ Book
Your purchase helps animals.*
Is it a book ... or an electronic tablet? This timely tale comes packaged as a tablet-shaped hardcover that's perfect for today's digital-savvy children. It's a hilarious (and heartfelt) reminder of how technology can take us backward — all the way to the times of prehistoric man! Tek, a cave boy, is obsessed with tech. He never sees his friends or family anymore. Can anyone in the village convince Tek to unplug and come outside into the big, beautiful world?
This item includes a bookplate that has been hand-signed by Patrick McDonnell (exclusive to MUTTS)!
"McDonnell plays fast and loose with the historical record in this playful cautionary tale ... ever-cute creatures deliver the story's tech-addiction message with a grin, and clever references abound." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
