Life could be better for Conor Corcoran. Class bully Damian Deegan is always teasing him about being small and having no friends – when in fact Conor has the only friend he needs in Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Finch, the toughest girl in school.

But when Conor and Charlie accidentally uncover a prehistoric man who was flash-frozen in a block of ice, life suddenly gets a bit too interesting!

How long can Conor keep his huge, hairy (and rather smelly) new ‘uncle’ a secret from his mum, his teachers and a gang of ruthless scientists?

Alan Nolan lives and works in Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland. He has written and illustrated many books and comics for children and grown-ups, including Fintan’s Fifteen, Conor's Caveman and the Murder Can Be Fatal series.

Books Ireland

a very funny story that will appeal to the eight to 10 age group

Irish Examiner

a lively tale from the author of Fintan’s Fifteen … its pace never sags from start to finish

Evening Echo

such fun - a really enjoyable read; right from the first page, it is full of zany, inconsequential humour which carries on through the book, ably abetted by the drawings

the lively illustrations add to the fun, celebrating the comedy and the action of the story … a good-humoured fish out of water story, Conor's Caveman is an easy and enjoyable read
