Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stick Man I bought this story for my niece who loves the Gruffalo (same author). After opening the Christmas present she asked her Dad to read it to her. It has a lovely rhythm similar to the Gruffalo that children adore. The pictures are also cute. And of course, everyone ends up happy. Another endearing story by this author.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cute! A must for any Gruffalo fan! I felt obligated to write a review after seeing the negative one posted here. My daughters are 3 & 5 and LOVE this book. I think it is very cute and makes a perfect Christmas gift for any Gruffalo fan. It has the same rhythmic verse to it and beautiful, colourful pictures. They love to spot the Gruffalo ordament on the Christmas tree. I have bought this book for all my nieces and nephews for Christmas too, since we love it so much! I would highly recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dissapointing This book was one of my few disappointments this year. The illustrations are okay, the story is okay, but it was not great. The story is that of a Stick man who gets chased by a dog, then thrown in a river. All he wants is to return home to his family.
