We have added another author to our list of picture book favorites! Oliver Jeffers! This is our third book that we have read by him, and find them all funny and endearing and quite original. This is Stuck.
This is a story of Floyd and what happens when his kite gets stuck in the tree. He has many brilliant ideas of what could possibly dislodge his kite, and they each get more outlandish than the rest. My boys were laughing at each page especially when the whale makes its entrance. The illustrations are wonderful and original....my boys and I spent a lot of time just looking at how fun the whole book is.
We also read Lost & Found and The Incredible Book Eating Boy. We are going to be grabbing more books by Oliver Jeffers!
