Stick and Stone are alone in the world and feeling lonely, but one day when Stick sticks up for (ha ha) Stone at the playground they become fast friends.

This story is ADORABLE! The illustrations are simple and cute and the message about friendship is great. My kids and I love this book and the adorable cover will draw many readers.
