What's The Adventures of Ook and Gluk [...] about? What it says on the tin: Two cavemen living in prehistoric Ohio get into shenanigans. They begin the story by irking their chief (here, ofc, spelled cheif) Goppernopper, as he and his "gards" direct them back to their respective houses to be chided, he falls in love with Ook's sister, Gak. He demands she marry him, otherwise bad things will happen to Ook and Gluk, and Gak agrees, seeing no possible other way to help them.
Luckily our heroes are a little more savvy. They plan to disrupt Gak's wedding and run off Gopernopper for good. They succeed, due heavily to Mog Mog, a t-rex they've been antagonizing most of their lives. As Goppernopper leaves the village and contemplates just how much he can't stand Ook and Gluk, he runs into a lot of big machines tearing down trees and bottling the water, and thus meets his descendant future!Goppernopper.
future!Goppernobber explains to original recipe Goppernopper that they invented a time machine to come back and clean the older world out of resources since the future is dying and has no fresh resources. f!Goppernopper takes ORGoppernopper to the future to see this distasterousness and ORGoppernopper suggests one teensie improvement: taking his former villagers and enslaving them.
Both Goppernoppers go back to the past with mechanical dinosaurs and tell the residents that, surprise!, you've got a fantastic job opportunity working for Amazon of the distant future. Of course Ook and Gluk don't stand for it, and they escape, along with Mog Mog's child with who they've made friends, and go from the year 500,001BC to 2222AD to stop the Goppernoppers and have adventures.
And I loved every second. One thing I really like about some YA/MG/Children's books is that I get to shut down and not think critically, but not in a bad way. Just "stop! Let the author tell the story!" way. That happens here, although I did go "but messing up the resources of the past will DEFINITELY mess up the resources of the future! Unless this is a stable time loop... Or that messing up the past is what CAUSES the future to be so wonky!" But I'm also completely aware that the book isn't meant to be taken so seriously or have such an intricate plot.
It's meant to get little kids reading with humor on their level (and a few jokes for the older readers slipped in; peep the "speak like a caveman" section), and I think it does a wonderful job. Yeah, the art and grammar may be crude, but I've always thought that nothing had to be absolutely perfect to be enjoyable.
I eagerly look forward to Dav Pilkey's future releases, I got almost a whole collection of his and I consider it money and time well spent, and if you give his books a try, you can knock one out in an hour.
