A dazzling delight from the creators of The Gruffalo, which explores what it’s like to be misunderstood. Stick Man looks like any old stick. No one realises he has feelings. And when one morning he goes for a jog and forgets to watch out for an excited dog, poor Stick Man becomes the stick that the dog wants to use for his favourite trick! Soon Stick Man is being used for all sorts of things: a flag mast; a cricket bat; even firewood! As summer changes to winter, and Stick Man is lost and frozen, how will he get home to the Family Tree again? Introducing an unforgettable character, this warm, witty and original rhyming story builds to an exciting and moving finale.
“An irresistibly jaunty picture book, spiced with the danger familiar to all those who love The Gruffalo.” Guardian
“Another cracker of a book. Donaldson’s rhymes bound along, like vintage Dr Seuss, while Scheffler’s slyly witty illustrations are a pleasure.” Financial Times
