The Adventures of Ook and Gluk

The Adventures of Ook and Gluk
Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future
by  George Beard and Harold Hutchins

The creators of Captain Underpants come together again for their second graphic novel.  We are introduced to Ook and Gluk, two cavemen who travel between the stone age and the year 2222.  Follow their adventures as they try to defeat their enemy, Chief Goppernopper, and save their friends and community from the evil Goppernopper Enterprise.  Ook and Gluk are helped on their way by Master Wong.  Master Wong teaches the cavemen the philosophy and technique of Kong-fu, providing Ook and Gluk with the means to take on the Goppernoppers.  It's a tale of friendship and heroism, accompanied by a large dose of laughs.
