Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Part graphic novel, part fantasy nature journal, this small, inventive title introduces Sticky Burr, a tiny, spiny, unlikely hero. Like the other burrs in Burrwood Forest, young Sticky is "small and covered with tiny hooks," but he feels different, too; he prefers art and music to the more "prickly" pursuits that the other burrs enjoy. While fleeing a pack of bullies, Sticky inadvertently begins a dangerous adventure that brings new friendships and transforms him from an outsider into a hero. With clear lines and understated, woodsy browns and greens, Lechner's cartoon artwork mixes multiframe spreads of Sticky on the run with pages that are meant to resemble Sticky's journal, offering background explanations about the burr way of life. Dialogue bubbles briskly move the story along, but the whimsical details will encourage kids to linger and enjoy the richly realized world on each page. The messages about triumphing over bullies are overt, but children will eagerly rally behind the small hero and look for future adventures in Burrwood Forest. Engberg, Gillian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It is funny and a fun adventure!
M. Tobin
The very simple illustrations and the funny story line, the easy-to-follow graphic format and the occasional shot of the ridiculous -- do not hesitate.

My 7 year old son loves this book, and he returns to it often.

Format: Paperback
This book (Sticky Burr) is one of the most fascinating comic books I have ever set my eyes upon. It is exciting and adventurous. His friends are Mossy Burr, Draffle, and Princess Oralee. He saves his village from danger and destruction and is admired by everyone but Scurvy Burr (a BAD Burr) and his sidekick Spiny Burr.

I love this story and I think most kids with a creative imagination and a yearning to read exciting stories will absolutely adore this book. I recommend this book to children of all ages (and adults, too).

This book is definately not a waste of money and time. BUY IT.

(I am 10 years old, and I wrote this, but my mother entered it for me because she is faster at keyboarding.)

My boys, age 7 and 3, both love this book. The characters are cute and funny and do exciting things without ever being in real danger. The artwork has lots of neat details that reward careful examination. This is a great book.

My 7 year old son loves this book, and he returns to it often. He first began enjoying it before he could read because the illustrations are fantastic. Now he reads the captions to himself, and I regularly hear him literally laughing out loud from the backseat of the car or his bedroom as he reads this book (and the second one) to himself. He even considered being sticky burr for Halloween. This is a graphic novel that is sweet and completely appropriate for a child - hard to come by in this day and age!

I first came across "Sticky Burr" in a kids' graphic novel section at the local library and my kids and I loved it so much we had to buy it. The characters are so cute, and the story so fun and engaging, that we really hope this author comes out with many more "Sticky Burr" adventures (there are currently two books). The artwork was so fun for my kids that we got out paper and pencils and had a blast drawing the characters ourselves. Great little book!

This book is a hoot. Your kids will love it. The very simple illustrations and the funny story line, the easy-to-follow graphic format and the occasional shot of the ridiculous -- do not hesitate. This book is a winner.

Finally I've found a book that my seven-year-old son wants to read on his own and laughs out loud. It's so accessible and unintimidating. Please write some more, Mr. Lechner!
