A debut picture book from an exciting new picture book talent all about an adorable little puppy, one stick, and his quest for a friend! A riot of colour frames this hilarious story, without saying very much at all - in fact there are only six words in the whole book - in order for this little puppy to find someone who understands you. Stick! is the perfect book for children who are just beginning to read words and pictures together. It wonderfully captures that feeling of inordinate excitement and Look! Play! Play With Me! when children have a new toy.

Synopsis

Stick! by Andy Pritchett

Little Puppy has discovered a STICK and sticks are a LOT of fun. With abounding enthusiasm, he goes in search of a playmate. He sees Bird - aha! - someone to play with! But Bird would much rather eat juicy worms. Hmmm...what about Cow? Or Pig? Who will be Puppy's friend?

Reviews

an exciting new picture book talent Lovereading4kids.co.uk This is an almost wordless picture book, leaving plenty of scope for the imagination. The illustrations are stylised... the imaginative older reader will help the younger child fill the visual gaps by talking about the context and motives surrounding each stage, as the story develops, and encouraging the child to construct different mental images at each reading Carousel
