Product description

From the illustrator of the #1 smash "The Day the Crayons Quit "comes another bestseller--a giggle-inducing tale of everything tossed, thrown, and hurled in order to free a kite! When Floyd's kite gets stuck in a tree, he's determined to get it out. But how? Well, by knocking it down with his shoe, of course. But strangely enough, it too gets stuck. And the only logical course of action . . . is to throw his other shoe. Only now it's stuck! Surely there must be something he can use to get his kite unstuck. An orangutan? A boat? His front door? Yes, yes, and yes. And that's only the beginning. "Stuck" is Oliver Jeffers' most absurdly funny story since "The Incredible Book-Eating Boy." Childlike in concept and vibrantly illustrated as only Oliver Jeffers could, here is a picture book worth rescuing from any tree.

Review quote

"Yields a childlike aesthetic sure to tickle the funny bones of its target audience-and of the adults who share the story with youngsters."--School Library Journal (starred review)
