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  - Megan - Goodreads

It takes an amazing writer and an even better illustrator to not only make kids laugh but make adults laugh as well. Oliver Jeffers hits the nail on the head with this book. I don't have children myself and I even found this picture book laugh-out-loud funny. Read full review

User Review  - Tyler Jones - Goodreads

Once children have discovered the joy of anticipating what comes next in a story, they can then discover the joy of thinking they know what comes next only to be surprised. A very silly and funny book. Read full review
