‘Game of Stones,’ by Rebecca Lisle, illustrated by Richard Watson.

This is the second hilarious story about Pod and his creative ideas (Stone Underpants being the first.)

The Stone Age is so boring! All people do is hammer away at rocks all day and take naps. Pod decides to invent a new game for him and his brother, Hinge, to play. However, living in the Stone Age, materials are somewhat limited! After inventing the Yow-Yow (which Dad promptly banned) and Crackit (which Dad also banned), Mum tells the brothers to go and play outside. After a lot of thinking, Pod comes up with the perfect idea….

A really entertaining Stone Age romp – it’s one that my own boys have come back to over and over. They love the clever word play in the names of the games and the humorous illustrations. Pod’s inventiveness certainly appeals to my oldest son, who is very taken by the blueprint endpapers!

This Stone Age read rocks!
