[ENGLISH:Children's Fiction] The Cave Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins
Project summary/description - Lucy Perkins has given us many books featuring twins that give a child insight into different cultures and countries. In this one she explaining prehistoric man and his environment "This is a story about things that happened ages and ages ago, before any of us were born, or our great-great-grandfathers either, for that matter. It was so very long ago that there were no houses, or farms, or roads from one place to another, and there was not a single city, or a town, or even a village in the whole earth. There was just the great, round world, all fresh and new, and covered with growing things; and there were wild beasts of all kinds in the forests, and fishes of all kinds in the seas, and all sorts of birds and flying creatures in the air.
Besides all these wonderful things in the new, new world, there was Man" Her stories are always well written, entertaining and informative. Let's follow those impursive 8 year old twins with "bright twinkling eyes and flaming red hair" as they encounter dangers and adventures in very early history. ( Phil chenvert).

This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections.
