A 12-year-old is named the ruler of his prehistoric village.Following Caveboy Dave: More Scrawny than Brawny (2016), caveboy Dave Unga-Bunga returns after surviving losing an ear. When a tall rock formation near his village crashes, he spies suspicious-looking smoke billowing on the horizon. Dave immediately runs to inform the sage Shaman Faboo but discovers him missing. Due to his knack for cooking up inventions and assertive decision-making, Dave is named Faboo's successor and is assigned his best friend, Rockie, and his father as advisers. However, Dave is less than thrilled at having to share his newfound authority; will he be able to listen to others and work as a team? McAndrew's illustrations are comical although stylized to the point of oddness. Many of the characters are rendered with oversized features and perilously thin appendages; Dave, for example, has a disproportionate, elliptically shaped head precariously balanced on a pencil-thin neck. Such easily accessible themes as the importance of teamwork, dealing with loss, and the power of friendship wind through a tale distinguished by fast pacing and an abundance of knee-slapping middle-grade humor. Even though this is a second volume, plotting is self-contained enough to make this fine as a stand-alone. Main character Dave is white; he has only one ear (lost in the previous installment) but has seemingly no hearing impairment. Best friend Rockie has dark skin.Silly. (Graphic fantasy. 7-12)

From New York Times bestselling author Aaron Reynolds comes the latest installment of Caveboy Dave, a middle-grade graphic novel series perfect for fans of Captain Underpants.

Twelve-year-old Dave Unga-Bunga is having a great year: he survived his deadly Baby-Go-Boom ceremony, he's earned the respect of the villagers of Bleccchh, and he just invented ice cream and summer vacation. Before the ice cream melts, Dave and his friends spot a plume of smoke on the horizon (could there be others nearby?) and suddenly Shaman Faboo--the glue that holds the community together--goes missing. With no one to tell them what to do or how to think, the village panics and elects Dave as their new leader. If Dave can't find Shaman Faboo and bring him back, he'll be doomed to a life of boredom and something much worse: public service!

Not So Faboo, the second book in the Caveboy Dave series, delivers irresistible characters, big thrills, and even bigger laughs.
