Product description

Delightful chaos ensues when a young boy gets his kite stuck in a tree in this laugh-out-loud new picture book from award-winning, internationally best-selling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers! Floyd gets his kite stuck up a tree. He throws up his shoe to shift it, but that gets stuck too. So he throws up his other shoe and that gets stuck, along with...a ladder, a pot of paint, the kitchen sink, an orang-utan and a whale, amongst other things! Will Floyd ever get his kite back? A hilarious book with a wonderful surprise ending.

DARLING BOOK!
MUST SEE!
CUTE! CUTE! CUTE!

Floyd's kite gets stuck in a tree...and "it wouldn't come unstuck."

Not knowing what else to do he throws his shoe up to try to get the kite down...

Only to have his shoe get stuck too!

Floyd throws thing after thing up into the tree

Read to find out what gets stuck in the tree and in what order...

And to see if the kite ever does come down :)

LOVED IT!

My students love books by Olivier Jeffers, so I had to order this one to add to our classroom library. I like that the cover doesn't show what is stuck in the tree, this ignited student predictions and interest even before the story was read!
