Tek: The Modern Cave Boy

Tek: The Modern Cave Boy

by Patrick McDonnell Illustrated by Patrick McDonnell
Tek the cave boy's tablet 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?
