The kid throws stuff on the tree. Each item he throws is to unstuck the previous one but all get stuck.
He manages to throw a whale, a firefighter and a mailman and a full house, lol. I found it funny but my husband found it silly. So depends on your sense of humor maybe?
My son and myself liked it though!
While I read this book for our children (ages 5 and 3), I bought a second copy to give to a friend who was having a particularly hard problem with a particularly stubborn person. And as we noted, the boy DOES get his kite back - but at a great cost to all those around him.
This book is well written, very funny, and designed so that it can be read over and over without the adult going insane. Oliver Jeffers is the favorite author in our house. Any and all of his books are worth the cost to buy.
You may not have as difficult of a time. My husband is usually OK with it; he is good at reading letters upside-down, though. Not so much me.
Opportunities to get kids involved in the story, e.g. "what do you think happens next?", "what do you see?"
Hard to read due to font/handwriting of text.
