Stick Man

Rhyming bliss from the creators of The Gruffalo. Santa even pays a visit in this snowy delight. One morning Stick Man goes for a jog, and forgets to watch out for an excited dog. Uh-oh: suddenly this poor stick is being tossed around for the dog’s favourite trick! Carried far from home, Stick Man finds himself used as a flag mast, a cricket bat, a bird’s nest… As summer turns to winter, will a lost, frozen Stick Man ever get home to his Family Tree? For Christmas, for bedtime, forever: a rhyme your whole family will love.

  • A rhyming classic by the creators of The Gruffalo
  • Heartwarming tale of family, courage and adventure
