But a mysterious girl keeps coming to his rescue. And when Zog faces his toughest test yet, she may be just the person to help Zog win classroom glory!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Stick Man

*"Donaldson and Scheffler''s poignant, suspenseful profile of an inanimate object recalls Laurie Keller or The Velveteen Rabbit. Donaldson''s rhymes never skip a beat, and Scheffler personalizes the many animals, people and settings in his witty watercolors. This yarn could become a December perennial." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

*"Scheffler''s engaging illustrations, Donaldson''s irresistible rhyming text and repeated refrains make this a winning read-aloud that will stick around long after the holiday season." -Kirkus, starred review

"The easy cadence, with a rolling structure and uncomplicated rhymes, will make this endearing picture book a fun read-along, and though Stick Man might object, kids will recognize the near-endless possibilities for fun that a stick presents." -Booklist
