From the pulitzer prize winning illustrator and the author of Violet the Pilot, this is the story of Stick, a frog about to have a BIG adventure.
Stick is a frog who likes to do things on his own—with no help from Mom. But one day he gets carried away . . . literally. His tongue accidentally sticks to a dragonfly, and off he's pulled across the swamp and into the big city of New Orleans, causing havoc along the way. When he finds himself stranded at the seashore, will he finally be ready to ask for help?

I supposed I should have read this book closer in the book store. I bought this for my five year old son. I was disappointed. The concept is great. The character is full of potential. And yet, the way the story was written was not at all what I needed it to be. The illustrations were terrific, and they inspired a lot of extra dialogue than what was put down in the book. I plan to go back and write my own additions to give the story more depth and more fun. As it stands, it's just flat.
