"From the best children's literature duo around, the wonderful story…"
From the best children's literature duo around, the wonderful story of Stick Man, who ends up in a series of "sticky" situations (No, really! No pun intended! He's picked up by a dog, and even used as a snow man's arm!) which for such a simple story concept are just brilliantly done. But all he wants is to get back to the family tree! He gets into some pretty grueling scrapes, but all ends heartwarmingly happily with a little help from a certain someone who helps him get home just in time for Christmas...
Fantastically written in Julia Donaldson's typical rhyming style accompanied by Axel Scheffler's beautiful, charming and characterful illustrations, this adorable story would make a great Christmas gift for any little one. A more sensitive child may be upset by the mild peril, but I think the suspense is engaging for most, and there is plenty of humour. Stick Man is a very likable little chap, and you can't help but find yourself rooting for him throughout! There are plenty of catchy repetitive parts that my little boy loves to chant along with, and this is such an engaging book that really captures his imagination.
Stick Man has to be our new all time favourite book to share and be loved by all, and is sure to become a classic. I don't think we'll ever tire of this story. If there's one book that will inspire and encourage your child's love of reading, then this is it. I cannot recommend it enough!Read moreLess
