Stick Man – Stick Man written by former Children’s Laureate, Julia Donaldson, and illustrated by Axel Scheffler is a children’s story about an anthropomorphic wooden stick who becomes separated from his family home and his Odyssey-like adventure to return there. A heartwarming rhyming tale of family, courage and adventure from the creators of The Gruffalo.
“Stick Man lives in the family tree
With his Stick Lady Love
and their stick children three.”
But it’s dangerous being a Stick Man.
A dog wants to play with him,
a swan builds her nest with him.
He even ends up on a fire!
Will he ever get back to the family tree in time for Christmas?
A wonderfully funny story from the author and illustrator of The Gruffalo and ZOG.
