This is a debut picture book from an exciting new picture-book talent all about an adorable little puppy, one stick, and his quest for a friend. Little Puppy has discovered a STICK and sticks are a LOT of fun. With abounding enthusiasm, he goes in search of a playmate. He sees Bird - aha! - someone to play with! But Bird would much rather eat juicy worms. Hmmm...what about Cow? Or Pig? Who will be Puppy's friend? A riot of colour frames this hilarious story all about making a friend and, without saying very much at all, finding someone who understands you. Stick! is the perfect book for children who are just beginning to read words and pictures together. It wonderfully captures that feeling of inordinate excitement and "LOOK! PLAY! PLAY WITH ME!" when children have a new toy.
Andy Pritchett illustrated collaboratively on comic book Tank Girl as well as working on the Tank Girl movie adaptation and cult comic book Shade: The Changing Man. He also illustrated and coloured stories for Sonic the Hedgehog comic. Stick! is his first picture book. Andy lives in Norwich.
