Lucy & Andy Neanderthal

Lucy & Andy Neanderthal
By Jeffrey Brown
Crown Books for Young Readers, 2016. J Comics. 194 p.

Siblings Lucy and Andy live in a cave with the rest of their Neanderthal family. Andy desperately wants to hunt mammoths and Lucy is skilled at cave paintings and making clothes. For the most part, they are bored with their simple life. But that is all about to change when their baby brother, Danny, begins saying that he saw “Pee-pul.”

This is a very funny graphic novel by Jeffrey Brown, author of the Jedi Academy series. The family members are hilarious and quirky and the story is wild and silly. Interspersed with the story are facts about Neanderthals presented by two modern day archaeologists. This is a good choice for fans of Jedi Academy or readers looking for a funny graphic novel.
