This is a read-along edition with audio synced to the text, performed by Terence Stamp.

Delightful chaos ensues when a young boy gets his kite stuck up a tree in this laugh-out-loud new picture book from award-winning, internationally best-selling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers! Narrated by Terence Stamp.

Floyd gets his kite stuck up a tree. He throws up his shoe to shift it, but that gets stuck too. So he throws up his other shoe and that gets stuck, along with... a ladder, a pot of paint, the kitchen sink, an orang-utan and a whale, amongst other things!

Will Floyd ever get his kite back?

A hilarious book with a wonderful surprise ending.

Review: Stuck

User Review  - Amy Adams - Goodreads

Haha! This story is super funny! There are surprises throughout. The illustrations, as with Jeffers' other books, are spot-on, and they're very fun. This will be a great book for storytime, and there are lots of opportunities for call-and-response and prediction. Read full review
