Stick Man

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 all over the 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, this warm, witty and original rhyming story from the creators of The Gruffalo builds to an exciting and moving finale.
