Description

This ode to unconditional love is a new picture book adventure for New York Times bestselling BFFs Stick and Stone, in which Stick searches for his family tree and discovers the importance of found family and forever friends.

Stick has always wanted to find his family tree. It's probably big and beautiful! Is it an oak? A maple? What other sticks might he meet?

Stone is happy to accompany his friend on the journey to find the tree he comes from—until it gets dark, and a bit scary in the forest . . .

With bright, engaging illustrations from bestselling creator Tom Lichtenheld, Beth Ferry's story explores the importance of learning about our roots, as well as the ability of friends and found family to help us grow strong in heart and mind. Sweet and silly, this story celebrates the love between friends and shows us that families come in all sizes and shapes—even sticks, stones, and pinecones.

          When you search for family--and discover it's always been there. The pals introduced in Stick and Stone's first eponymous outing (2015) set out on a quest for Stick's literal family tree. From what kind of tree did he break off? Oak, spruce, willow? The duo ventures forth, determined to find Stick's origins, traversing bodies of water, forests, valleys, and mountains. Though surrounded by trees, Stick can't find his familial roots. Soon, things turn ominous: Darkness falls, shadows and strange noises become unnerving, and the terrified pair realizes they're lost. No fear, though. They eventually return safely, and Stone helps disconsolate Stick understand who his family is and always has been--and that differences don't matter. This sweetly adorable story, expressed textually through simple, jaunty verse, conveys the reassuring message that family and true friends always (ahem) stick by you when you need them. The bright illustrations, aptly set mostly in nature, are equally endearing, with the protagonists exuding optimism and cheerfulness (except during that scary forest adventure). They register a broad range of expressions, though their faces are created merely from dots and curves denoting broad smiles. Brownish Stick bears pairs of short, chunky projectiles connoting limbs; his tilted head resembles a wizard's cap. Stone is orange-brown and looks like a rotund meatball. Endpapers feature numerous smiling iterations of Stick representing branches from different trees; included labels and leaves show variances. Kids won't be stone faced and will definitely stick with this delightful story about friendship. (Picture book. 4-7)

          Preschool-Grade 1 When Stick wonders about his family tree (in a literal as well as a genealogical sense), he and his buddy, Stone, set out on a quest to find his origins. Together, Stick (a stick with a face as well as stubby arms and legs) and Stone (a round stone with a genial countenance) explore mountains, valleys, and woodlands without success. Strolling and rolling through a darkening forest, they become lost and frightened until they encounter their friend Pinecone, who leads them home. When Stick gives up on finding his family, Stone informs him, "Your family's ME!" His revelation strikes home with Stick, who realizes that he can always count on his best friend. A sequel to Stick and Stone (2014), this story begins with curiosity, leads to adventure, and ends (like so many road trips) with a character gaining a new perspective on what really matters. Excellent for reading aloud, Ferry's light-verse text will engage and amuse young children, while Lichtenheld's pleasing illustrations feature rounded forms, harmonious colors, and lively, lovable characters. A rewarding picture book.

          February 2, 2015
          Newcomer Ferry’s simple rhymes and Lichtenheld’s (Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site) pared-down art make fine partners in this testament to friendship. At the outset, reedy Stick stands moodily by the sea, while round Stone gazes at the moon (“Stick. Stone./ Lonely. Alone”). They meet at the playground, where a pinecone makes fun of Stone. Stick defends Stone (“ ‘Vanish!’ says Stick./ His word does the trick”), and a friendship is born. Ferry adds zip to the best-friends-forever theme with plenty of sly puns (“Stone whispers, ‘Gee,/ you stuck up for me!’ ”), and Lichtenheld conveys significant expressiveness through the characters’ dot eyes and small smiles. More subtly, he darkens objects when the story takes a discouraging turn and pours on the sunlight when things cheer up. Friends can help each other by capitalizing on their differences, he suggests, as when Stone rolls a path through tall grass for Stick as they travel. The use of instantly recognizable objects as characters gives the story universal appeal, and Ferry makes its moral unmissable. Ages 4–8. Author’s agent: Elena Giovinazzo, Pippin Properties. Illustrator’s agent: Amy Rennert, Amy Rennert Agency.
