Stick and Stone
Stick and Stone, once lonely and alone, become fast friends when Stick, well, sticks up for Stone. That’s just what friends do. Stick and Stone have many fun days together until a hurricane separates the pair. Stick is nowhere to be found, causing Stone quite a bit of distress. He finally finds Stick but Stick needs help from his new friend to get out of a little situation.
This debut book from Beth Ferry will cement her place in the hearts of children and adults alike. It’s a simply-told story of an unlikely pair that experiences a surprise separation right when they’re starting to enjoy each other’s company. The rhyming, amusing text makes Stick and Stone a read-aloud that’s enjoyable for both reader and listener. Tom Lichtenheld’s illustrations are a perfect complement to the story. He has a knack for giving life to nonhuman characters and creating images to aptly accompany minimal text. Fans of Lichtenheld’s other books will add Stick and Stone to the list of favorites and eagerly await the return of this author-illustrator duo, as well as more Stick and Stone adventures.
