Ook & Gluk: Review & Giveaway

Last week, when The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future arrived at our doorstep, Little Man was instantly in love with it. The cover drew him in, with the silly characters and comic-book look, and the story throughout the pages kept him hooked. In complete honesty, we sat and read the book cover to cover (all 175 pages) in one afternoon.The book comes from the creators of the Captain Underpants series (which we have suddenly started reading in the past week). The Adventures of Ook and Gluk follows two cavemen as they encounter an evil corporation leader, who has come to the past to steal trees, oil, and water. Their comical adventures include helping out a baby dinosaur, meeting new friends in the future, and battling killer robots.The Adventures of Ook and Gluk accomplishes everything the cover promises: "action, laffs, and flip-o-rama in every chapter." The flip-o-ramas were a huge hit with my 6 year old. With titles like "Mechasauras Wrecks" and "Regergitation Animation," what 6 year old wouldn't love making their own mini animated scenes within the book?
