Publisher's Summary

Tao is an outcast. Unlike the great hunters of his clan, Tao does not want to kill the wild bears or woolly mammoths of the hunt. Instead, he wants only to paint them. But only Chosen Ones can be cave painters.

Volt, the clan leader, violently despises Tao. And when the other clan members discover Tao's secret, they cast him out into the wilderness alone. There, he befriends a wild wolf dog names Ram and the mysterious Graybeard who teaches him the true secret of the hunt.

Lot's of Adjectives!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My son wo deals with ADHD was able to sit and read this book by himself, so I was able to help my other child with h.w. and clean the kitchen. My son received an 85% on his Final Project.

Who was your favorite character and why?

After every reading my son would explain to me how Tao loved painting animals in the caves and his dog Ram was his sidekick.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

My son enjoyed reading a couple of chapters at a time, which was wonderful since his attention span needs improvement.

Any additional comments?

My son's Final Project was a pleasure to see him complete it on his own. My son felt a sense of accomplishment.
