From New York Times bestselling author Beth Ferry and illustrator Joseph Kuefler comes the picture book Caveboy Crush, a sweet celebration of first love—perfect for Valentine’s Day and read-alouds all year long.
Neander is a young caveboy. He spends his days doodling on cave walls, chasing mammoth butterflies, and playing with his pet rock, Rock. But one day, he meets Neanne—and he’s CRUSHED! She’s short, she’s hairy, she’s perfect!
Neander does everything he can think of to get Neanne’s attention. He picks a bouquet for her from the Field of the Bees. He fetches a conch shell for her from the Waves of Salt. As Neander’s gestures get grander and grander, Neanne remains unimpressed. But then Neander hatches the grandest gesture of all, and it’s Neanne’s turn to do some crushing.
“Ferry’s joyful, plucky words practically guarantee exciting storytimes. Bolstered by Kuefler’s smooth, colorfully sparse pictures, Neander and Neanne’s story . . . delivers belly laughs amid mild twists and enormous fun. From CRUSH to AWW.” —Kirkus Reviews
