ABOUT THE BOOK
TEK: The Modern Cave Boy
Written and illustrated Patrick McDonnell
Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Tek is a cave boy in love with tech: his tablet, video games, phone, and TV keep him deep in his cave, glued to his devices, day in and day out. He never sees his friends or family anymore–and his ability to communicate has devolved to just one word: “UGH” Can anyone in the village convince Tek to unplug and come outside into the big, beautiful world?
