by Andy Pritchett

Anyone who has a dog knows that if you give a dog a stick, he'll want you to throw it. And that's just what happens in Pritchett's charming book, Stick!.

Dog finds a stick.

Dog tries to find friends to play with him.

But what happens when no one wants to play with Dog?

Will he find a friend to play with him?

Stick!  is quite simple with one word per page and minimalist illustrations similar to the book Banana by Ed Vere. Stick! is perfect for a bedtime story for your young family.
