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
