Release Date: April 7, 2015
When Stick rescues Stone from a prickly situation with Pinecone, the two become good friends. But what happens when Stick gets stuck?
In this rhyming picture book, we have a very simple story about a stick and story and a very very subtle message about bullying, but an even bigger message about friendship. There isn't much to say about this one. It is a solid, adorable, and well-illustrated story that has a message but never felt didactic.
