Editorial Reviews

Review

* "Jeffers’ light-handed illustrations are hilariously droll . . . The giggle-inducing conclusion leaves some stuff, um, up in the air."--A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2011, starred review
(Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

* "Yields a childlike aesthetic sure to tickle the funny bones of its target audience–and of the adults who share the story with youngsters."--School Library Journal, starred review
(School Library Journal (starred review))

"With deceptive simplicity and sophisticated illustration, this comic look at problem solving will have wide appeal."--Booklist

I like all of Jeffers' books: all lovely and whimsical. This, though, is his best, in my opinion. It is absurd in a way that kids (even tinies like my 2.5 year old) and adults alike find funny, with a particularly amusing (and plausible even in the circumstances!) ending. I have already bought several copies for friends' kids.

Oliver Jeffers does an amazing job with Stuck. My almost 4 year old son was laughing so hard and then had me read it several more times. That is a good thing. As the title states, we were "stuck" in laughter!. It is an oversized book with amazing illustrations and because of its size, a nice book to read to a group for story time. This book is refreshing and helps children creatively think about things in a new way. It also adheres to the young child's developmental sense of self in the end. Highly recommend for an entertaining read at bedtime or with your story time group.

I've already read a couple Oliver Jeffers books, but this one is my favorite by far. Basically, Floyd's kite gets stuck in the tree, and he throws various items up to try to get it down. I got it for my cousin's kids (4 and 7), but my cousin and I were cracking up reading it!

Here's a link to Oliver Jeffers reading it:[...]

Format: Hardcover
I was ordering some books for use in my preschool classroom and Stuck came up as a book with good recommendations. I was spending off a gift certificate and after some research decided to order it on an impulse as a treat to myself. It is a nice quality book, simple matte illustrations, and aesthetically pleasing. The font is part cursive/ part print and is a bit difficult for my seven year old daughter to read which is unfortunate for motivated readers and my preschool students who might want to find familiar letters or words in the text. The story was cute and pretty imaginative- just missing a real hook to keep me laughing. It's the end of the school year so I no longer have classes full of children to read to, maybe I'll have a different opinion about this book after I have a receptive audience. I'll add to this review in the fall if this is the case, but as a teacher of 25 years this book doesn't live up to some of the other read-a-loud books that I work with on a regular basis.

I will first admit my bias to Oliver Jeffers, I love all of his books and incredible artwork. But this one has to be in my top two. It is so funny, so much detail in the illustrations, it never gets old. My 3 year old and 7 year old girls both love it, so its in our top picks consistently at bedtime. I think I may be buying this for some adults this year as well, it is a pretty good metaphor for life... keep doing the same things over and over and expect a different result... Love it.

I gave this to my 2.5 year old for Christmas and she thinks its hilarious. I disagree with other reviewers that this would encourage children to throw children into trees... I ask my little girl "would you ever throw a cat/whale/house into a tree?" "And she says "NO, that's SILLY!"

I read all the reviews on this book before purchasing, there were lots of mixed ones about the type of font and how the book ends. Let me just say, this book is pure fun. It is not trying to teach your child a lesson or be educational in any way. It is trying to get giggles and smiles out of your child, and in that way is a HUGE success! My child LOVES this book. When we first got it he only called it "stuck" and now he says, "stuck in tree book, pleaaasse" So, I cannot recommend it any more highly than that. Except to say, I loved it so much I went out and bought other Oliver Jeffers books, like "How to catch a star" which is also a huge hit with my 3 year old.

This is such a hilarious book - my three children, ages 7, 5, 3, absolutely love this book! They've asked me to read this book over and over and over...
