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!
Best way to unstick something stuck is to toss up something else, hope to hit it (the first item that is) and thereby knock it down.
I know this.
My frisbee got stuck in a tree.
I tossed up a rock.
Then I stood there waiting for the frisbee to come down.
The rock, having missed the frisbee, came down instead and cracked me on the head. Fortunately, my uncle, a physician, was in the house and therefore available to administer first aid.
In Stuck, Floyd tosses up the following to dislodge his kite:
Favorite shoe, other one, Mitch the cat, stepladder, can of paint, duck, chair, friend's bicycle, kitchen sink, front door, family car, milkman, orangutang, small boat, big boat, rhinoceros, long distance truck, house across the street (with neighbor inside), lighthouse, curious whale, fire engine followed by firemen one by one...
And they all get stuck.
How it all ends, I won't divulge, but it's a delightful book that you and your kids will certainly not get tired of...
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.
