In this book, there is a boy named Pod who lives in the Stone Age. He wears leaf underpants but thinks they aren’t warm enough. His dad suggests that Pod use stone to make underpants because it is very handy. Pod works hard to perfect his stone underpants. When he tries to wear the stone underpants, Pod discovers he can’t kick or run in them. He can’t swim in them, either; he sinks to the bottom of the lake. He throws them away and tries again using wood. He forgot about splinters!
Pod tries a lot of different materials, but they do not work out for one reason or another. Will Pod ever find material to keep his bottom warm?
It was entertaining to see the author’s perspective of the Stone Age. The creatures in the book are bright and colorful. I love the woolly mammoths and saber-tooth tigers. It was funny when Pod plucked a feather from a bird, but the bird didn’t want to share his feathers! This story is creative, fun, and very hilarious!
