Lug: Dawn of the Ice Age | Ages 8-12 David Zeltser (Lerner Publishing Group)
What do you get when you mix Diary of a Wimpy Kid with Ice Age? A humorous climate change wake-up, of course! At least, that’s what Zeltser pulls off in this middle-grade novel with fun illustrations. It's about caveboy Lug, who is more interested in doing cave doodles than competing to catch the Biggest Beast. When Lug realizes his world might be facing an impending ice age, no one listens. Zeltser manages to draw comparisons to climate change while keeping the tone light.
