A fantastic book. A great way to help kids (and adults!) understand and process their thoughts and feelings. Highly recommend!


Gorg the caveboy is comfortable living with his family in the Stone Age - well, as comfortable as you can be when you have to watch out for Three-Toed Snarkles! His body and brain work really well to make sure he doesn't get kicked out of his clan and to keep him out of danger. He is even the best burper for miles around! But one day, catastrophe strikes and Gorg finds himself in the busy 21st century! How is he going to cope in this new world? Will being able to whittle a spear help him when faced with a sleepover? By reading this book, you will not only find out the answers to these questions but it will get you thinking about your own "caveman brain". Gorg's adventures in the modern world might even give you some helpful hints about how to manage sad memories, the Internet and missing out on party invites. There is also some stuff for the brains of parents!

Author Biography:

Julia Sawyer is a clinical psychologist who has worked with children and adolescents for eighteen years. She has a real passion for teaching young people about how their brains work and that we all have yucky thoughts and feelings from time to time. When she's not running therapy groups for young people or playing with her two children, she is surfing badly and doing embarrassing dance performances in public! One of her caveperson's favourite thoughts is, I look stupid.
