Puppy loves his new stick. He wants to play! Now he just needs someone to play with.
Puppy is thrilled when he discovers a stick just waiting to be tossed and chased. But Cow is more interested in grass, and Chicken is more interested in a worm. In fact, all of Puppy’s friends are busy doing something besides playing with a stick. Poor Puppy! Finally, another equally enthusiastic canine comes along, and the rousing game of fetch that ensues is enough to inspire the entire barnyard to give the stick a chance. In bold, graphic spreads, Andy Pritchett’s adorable animal cast enlivens a six-word story of friendship and play too sweet and simple to ignore.
Andy Pritchett’s favorite thing is a pencil, which is like a stick but smaller. Some of his other favorite things are eating cake and sharing a house with his girlfriend and a very noisy cat. This is his first picture book. He lives in Norfolk, England.
