Overview
Oona has found a very special egg. Oh, how she loves her baby She'll do anything to protect this egg until it hatches. Then she can find out what's inside, even though it might just gobble her up But Oona's precious bundle of eggy joy may never see the light of day. It seems everyone wants Oona's egg. Her little brother, Thunk, that smelly kid, Bruce Brute, and a bunch of others in her West Wog world all want a piece of Oona's treasure. Oona the protector, Oona the curious, Oona the mighty will do whatever it takes to safeguard her darling. No one will get their grimy, Cro-Magnony hands on her egg. Because, more than anything, Oona wants something of her very own to care for.
National Book Award finalist Adele Griffin pairs with artist Mike Wu to deliver a cast of lovable, primitive family and friends in West Wog. The stories pop with adventure, original language, and an unstoppable protagonist who is as adorable as the egg she's working so hard to protect.

Eager for a pet, Oona Oodlethunk, the prehistoric narrator of this gleefully ana- chronistic series opener, brings home an enormous abandoned egg and dotingly cares for it, despite not knowing whats inside. Its going to hatch into Something Cute, she tells herself, while worrying that it could be anything from a fossil to a giant raptor. (True, our prehistoric forebears didnt coexist with dinosaurs, but neither did they have names like Allison and Dave, as best we know.) Oonas forward-thinking parents (her mother is designing an ad campaign for the wheel while her father experiments in the kitchen) help with egg care, but when bully Bruce Brute decides he wants the egg, things get tricky. An authors note explains Griffins (The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone) mixing of fact and fiction, while Wus decidedly Flinstonian artworka mix of single- and double-page scenes, as well as comics sequencesadds to the fun. While millennia may separate Oona from todays readers, they should have no trouble relating to her struggles with sibling rivalry, troublesome bullies, and finding the perfect pet. Ages 812. Agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management. (Jan.)
