I loved the idea for this book - but my kids & I were less than impressed with the artwork. It was just too cartoonish - Antram's people & animals were over the top when it came to noses & eyes (they looked buffoonish, worse than the characters in "Ice Age"). My kids were bored with the descriptive passages, and really, so much about prehistoric life is fascinating - especially mammoth hunting - that there should be no reason for such uninspiring text.
