‘Stuck’ by picture book sensation Oliver Jeffers is launching today and we are all very excited here at HC! As Oliver once said ‘Stuck is a book about trying to solve a growing problem by throwing things at it’.
In the book, delightful chaos ensues when a young boy got his kite stuck in a tree. In order to knock it loose, he starts throwing things at it including his favourite pair of shoes, a cat, a rhinoceros, a lighthouse, a whale…
When Floyd goes and fetch a ladder you think he’s finally going to climb it and get his kite back… But no, he THROWS the ladder… And when he goes and find a saw you think: ‘That’s it – he’s going to sort this out once and for all and he’s going to cut the tree….’ But no, he HURLS the saw up the tree.
Well, every turning point is highly unexpected in ‘Stuck’, including the ending. I know you can’t wait to read it now!
And would you like watch Oliver reading ‘Stuck’ and talking about the inspiration behind the book? Well, stay tuned and watch this space!
