Gary Paulsen Synopses: Paintings from the Cave is a collection of three novels by Gary Paulsen. The novellas are each centered around a 12 year-old. Jake lives in a violent neighbourhood where fear is more common than a good morning greeting, but when he meets the neighbourhood sculptor, he learns of a whole new world. Jojo is not very close to her family, but is very close to her three dogs. When she tries to help a friend out, the dogs know how to help. Jamie and older brother Eric are alone in the world, but Jamie has a way with art and dogs that will lead them down the right path.

Dogteam is a prose poem in the form of a picture book, written by Gary Paulsen and illustrated by Ruth Wright Paulsen. In it, a team of dogs take the reader on a ride through the snow, in and out of the woods. And you’ll wish this ride will never end.
