In this lighthearted picture book, the intrepid, determined, and savvy Wakawakaloch learns to embrace what makes her special while lifting up her neanderthal community. Perfect for fans of Vera Brosgol and Emily Hughes. 

No one can pronounce Wakawakaloch’s name. Why couldn’t she be called something simple . . . like Gloop? That’s a name you can find on a T-shirt! But after a visit with her tribe’s elder, Wakawakaloch discovers what her name means, and how powerful names can be. Gloop may be easy to say, but the girl who helps her friends embrace differences and wear their names proudly? Her name is Wakawakaloch!

This hilarious picture book is one both children and adults will love. Poor Wakawakaloch has a name that no one can pronounce/remember. She wishes she had a simpler name, like Gloop. It takes a little help from her family and a forward-thinking t-shirt stand to help Wakawakaloch learn to love her name. As someone who grew up with a last name no one could pronounce and a first name that was never on a t-shirt, I could feel Wakawakaloch's pain. Young readers will love the delightful illustrations and the prehistoric setting. This book is sure to be a bedtime favorite.
