It's hard being the only evolved boy in your tribe. Arg does his best to fit in. But nobody really understands him. His mum is bewildered by his desire to wear clothes. His older sister, Hng, is constantly annoyed by his cleverness. His dad tries to be supportive of Arg's strange, new ways, but he secretly hopes Arg will grow up to be just like any other Neanderthal. Arg's life is changed forever when he meets Skeet, an equally evolved talking T-rex. Together they embark on a mission to save the dinosaurs from extinction.
Kyle Mewburn hails from Brisbane originally, but now lives in Millers Flat, Central Otago and has written a number of picture books for Scholastic including the award-winning Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck!, and the 2010 NZ Post Children's Book of the Year, Old Hu-Hu. Kyle's zany sense of humour is used to good effect in this new junior fiction series. Taupo illustrator, Donovan Bixley, is a talented artist with a range of styles. His work brings another dimension to Mewburn's text, often adding hilarious bits of his own to enhance the storyline.
