    This books is about the discovery of a prehistoric cave in France on the eve of World War II Although it is told like a story the characters and stories are true Why this is shelved in my library's fiction section is beyond This title would be perfect for informational texts or non fiction books that read like fiction to satisfy NYC's Common Core Non Fic Curriculum reuirements My 8 year old daughter read about half of it with a friend and they were intrigued I don't think they would have picked the title out on their own but it was good that they weren't bored once they began reading it

    Great story made all the greater because it's a true story Good illustrations The artistic beauty of the cave drawings struck me most Certainly a great little book for early readers that combines the learning of reading with that of science
