000000000000000_mcdonnell_tek

Patrick McDonnell (creator of Mutts) appears at Anderson’s Bookshop on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at 7:00 PM to sign his new book Tek: The Modern Cave Boy!

ABOUT ‘TEK’:
From a beloved, bestselling Caldecott Honor recipient comes a hilarious reminder of how technology can take us backward … all the way to the times of prehistoric man!

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, and his ability to communicate has devolved to just one word: “UGH”! Can anyone convince Tek to unplug and come outside into the big, beautiful world?

In addition to an imaginative and totally relatable story, ‘Tek’ also offers a distinctive design — including a tablet-shaped cover and a password “screen” — that’s sure to pique the interest of even the wariest young readers.
