I read this story to Isla when she was 5 wks old...the soft rhyming throughout the story kept her alert and smiling. She watched me reading all the way through, her eyes never shifted from mine.

I listened to this book at school, and I really liked it. I liked it because it was scary, and I like scary stuff. My favourite part was when the cave baby was riding on a mammal.

The boys chose this with a voucher they received for their 3rd birthday, based upon the fact that it was Julia Donaldson! Encouraged to look through, they were adamant that this was the book for them - and it did not disappoint. Another fantastic read.
