If you teach second through fourth grade, add The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung Fu Cavemen From the Future (what a crazy title/premise) by George Beard and Harold Hutchins (The Creators of Captain Underpants) (aka Dav Pilkey) to your list of new books to pick up for your classroom library. It just came out August 10th and runs $9.99 in a sturdy hardcover and no annoying dust jacket for your students to take off and lose.
My son (rising third grade) is so excited he can hardly stand for me to stop typing so he can get his hands on it. A great graphic novel to help some of the kids make it until Diary of a Wimpy Kid 4 comes out this fall!
The boys are from Cleveland, Ohio and are part of a four book series. You can also hop on over to his website Dav Pilkey’s Extra Crunchy Website of Fun and learn how to draw the characters and other such fun!
