Stick Man by Julia Donaldson

Donaldson, Julia Stick Man, illustrated by Axel Scheffler. Arthur A. Levine (Scholastic), September 2009. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. Stick Man leaves his Stick Wife and his Stick Children home asleep as he goes for an early morning jog. Ufortunately, he is swept up in a variety of stick-related adventures, even though he tries to let everyone know that he is NOT a stick, but a Stick Man. Only with the intervention of a very special someone will Stick Man ever be able to find his way home. When this is published officially, it will be joining my personal collection. I loved Stick Man and his adventures and I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the special character. EL – ESSENTIAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
