Product description

Stick Man lives in the family tree, with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three. One day he wakes early and goes for a jog. “Stick Man, oh Stick Man, beware of the dog!”

The world is a scary place for Stick Man. He looks like any old stick. No-one realises he has feelings. When a cheeky dog runs away with him, soon poor Stick Man is being dragged from place to place. People use him for all sorts of things, from a flag mast to a cricket bat, a snowman’s arm to – aaaarrgh! – FIREWOOD ! As summer changes to winter, and Stick Man is lost and frozen, how will he get home again? Introducing an unforgettable new character in a tale about showing consideration for others, this warm, witty and original rhyming story from the creators of The Gruffalo builds to an exciting and moving finale.

    The stick mans ok but not as good as a squash and a squese and the grufalo the stick man has lots of adventures with his stick family and I do feel sorry for him. I probably wouldnt read this as many times as the Grufalo.

    I liked this book because it rhymed and it was quite funny. It’s good for Christmas too because even Santa was in it.
