Barney was out exploring when he stumbled across a den like nothing he’d ever seen! It was full of amazing objects like paintbrushes, clay jewellery, arrowheads, books, and candles, and what’s more, everything was homemade! Barney realised he’d discovered the den of a real-life cave person!
But there’s just one problem, Barney’s parents don’t believe him, and he’s been grounded for making up stories! And that’s where you come in... it’s up to you to prove that Barney’s not lying. With the help of his sister Lou, it’s time to set Barney free by learning how to live the life of a cave dweller. Can you build a den, light a fire, and bake delicious cave cookies? Will you learn how to cast pewter arrowheads, make elder pencils, draw cave murals, and create your very own bow and arrow to prove that these amazing objects can be handmade and that this cave person is real?
All this and much more is waiting for you as you follow in Barney’s footsteps and discover how cave people really survived all those years ago. Are you ready to join the ranks of Barney’s truth-seekers?
