Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Stick rescues Stone from a prickly situation with a Pinecone, the pair becomes fast friends. But when Stick gets stuck, can Stone return the favor?

Author Beth Ferry makes a memorable debut with a warm, rhyming text that includes a subtle anti-bullying message even the youngest reader will understand. New York Times bestselling illustrator Tom Lichtenheld imbues Stick and Stone with energy, emotion, and personality to spare.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; In this funny story about kindness and friendship, Stick and Stone join George and Martha, Frog and Toad, and Elephant and Piggie, as some of the best friend duos in childrenandrsquo;s literature.

Review:

"Rosenthal and Lichtenheld (the team behind Duck! Rabbit! and other titles) give punctuation personalities in this witty calligraphic jaunt. Against a background of lined penmanship paper, an exclamation mark realizes he differs from his neighbors, a neat row of periods. Like them, he consists of a smiley face drawn in swooshes of expressive black ink, but above his head stands a resolute vertical dash. He twists and curls his topper to no avail, until — 'Hello? Who are you?' — an inquisitive question mark appears. Bothered by the newcomer's incessant queries ('When's your birthday? Know any good jokes?'), the hero bellows a spread-shaking 'Stop!' and discovers his talent for assertions, from 'Hi!' to 'Wow!' and 'Look what I can do!' Thanks to savvy design, the exclamation mark's announcements are printed in different sizes and colors to subtly indicate emphasis and tone, yet the mark never meets others like himself and therefore never suffers from overuse. With a restraint that's more declaratory than exclamatory, Rosenthal and Lichtenheld cleverly raise awareness of the ways punctuation conveys mood. Ages 4 — 8. Agent: Amy Rennert, the Amy Rennert Agency, (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Confusion abounds when aand#160;poorly spoken donkeyand#160;says to aand#160;grammarian yam,and#160;"I Yam a Donkey!"

Synopsis:

Stick and Stone are sticking together in this hilarious and heart-warmingand#160;picture book that proves once and for all why best friends ROCK!

Synopsis:

Even frustrated grammarians will giggle at the whoandrsquo;s-on-first routine that begins with a donkeyandrsquo;s excited announcement, andldquo;I yam a donkey!andrdquo; Unfortunately the donkeyandrsquo;s audience happens to be a yam, and one who is particular about sloppy pronunciation and poor grammar. An escalating series of misunderstandings leaves the yam furious and the clueless donkey bewildered by the yamandrsquo;s growing (and amusing) frustration. The yam finally gets his point across, but regrettably, heandrsquo;s made the situation a little bit too clear . . . and the story ends with a dark and outrageously funny twist.

Synopsis:

From the bestselling creators of Duck! Rabbit!, an exciting tale of self-discovery!

He stood out here.

He stood out there.

He tried everything to be more like them.

It's not easy being seen. Especially when you're NOT like everyone else. Especially when what sets you apart is YOU.

Sometimes we squish ourselves to fit in. We shrink. Twist. Bend. Until — ! — a friend shows the way to endless possibilities.

In this bold and highly visual book, an emphatic but misplaced exclamation point learns that being different can be very exciting! Period.
