Quennu and the Cave Bear

Quennu is afraid of only one thing in her prehistoric world -- cave bears. When she is separated from her family and clan on a journey to the magical caverns where art is made, she must find her way alone. In the dark passages of the cave, the young girl's imagination takes over. In order to reunite with the rest of her clan, Quennu is faced with only one option -- she must face her fear.

In this provocative and imaginative story, Marie Day takes young readers on a magical journey through time. As one of prehistory's first artists, the character of Quennu embodies a subtle exploration of art, reality, and magic. Brave and thoughtful, she is the perfect young heroine.


Marie Day is the author and illustrator of Dragon in the Rocks and Edward the Crazy Man. For many years she was an award-winning costume and stage designer for operas and plays all over North America, including the Stratford Festival.
