"Stick Man lives in the family tree, With his Stick Lady love and their Stick children three"
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler who worked together on the Gruffalo, have again created something magical and special. Published in 2008, with words by Julia and illustrations by Axel, the two have again bought a unique and surprisingly lovable, (despite outward appearances), character to the fore, becoming another bedtime favourite.
The Stick Man leaves his home on an ordinary day, when he encounters a dog, who just wants to play fetch ... and what is the Stick Man? but a stick! The story tells of the struggle and journey for Stick Man to get home and be reunited with his family for Christmas. It is this one thought, that keeps him on track.
