Stuck is the familiar tale of a group of children who first lose a kite up a tree and who then attempt to bring it down with all their other toys.

One warm and windy day, Charlie and his friends decide to fly a kite. It takes off and soars and swoops and plunges... straight into a tree. The kite is stuck. One by one, Charlie's friends each try to free the kite with their toys - all of which end up stuck in the tree along with the kite. Just when it looks as though everything is stuck forever, the cat loses its footing on a branch and sets off a chain reaction, sending their toys to the ground. But guess who is stuck now?

Review quote

Charlotte Calder's wonderful and feisty child characters are not easily discouraged by the problem at hand and are beautifully brought to life by Mark Jackson's clever and funny illustrations. A simple story, splendidly told. Highly recommended for ages 2 to 5 years. * Sydney's Child * ... a most delightful book with a clear developing story and a few surprises ... highly recommended. * Reading Time *
