This is like someone got high on weeds and wrote a book.
Something gets stuck on a tree. To retrieve it you start throwing a house, a whale, firengines and what not to the tree and they all get stuck on the tree.
Children needs to be taught stories that appeals to the intelligence and what they can relate to in the real world. Not something that murders the sense of space, proportion and sanity.
Downside though - it gives them an idea to throw things around. I noticed my lil one suddenly throwing things around a lot once I introduced the book.
Also, the quality of the board book is really poor. The pages are old and yellowing, and it’s quality is poor compared to other board books I’ve purchased. The three star is coz of this and not the book !
I was very disappointed with the quality of paper that it's printed on. The paper is too thin for my liking and looks cheap since it's a bit glossy. For such a wonderfully illustrated children's book to be printed on a glossy paper is very disappointing. But I guess that's what you get for less that 250 bucks! Would not recommend book collectors to get this copy.

I normally rotate the several books I read to him, but today he greeted me at his house with: “Did you bring the ‘Stuck’ book because I want to read it every day forever?” Up to now his favourite funny books have been the ‘Dinosaurs in the Supermarket / School’, but his reaction to ‘Stuck’ has far exceeded those.
Oliver Jeffers has written wonderful books, but I wish he would write at least one more as humorous as this one.
This story is particularly quirky. It tells the story of a boy who gets his kite stuck in a tree and, in order to dislodge it, he throws up bigger and more elaborate things. Without giving away the story, let's just say a whale, some ladders and a neighbours house are involved. Definitely worth reading and treasuring.
We've read the story a few times recently and they still enjoy it.
