“Stick Man lives in the family tree
With his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three…”
But the world outside the family tree is a dangerous place for Stick Man. A dog wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a nest with him and he even ends up on a fire!
How will Stick Man ever get back to the family tree? Stick Man guarantees more fun than you can shake a stick at!
Most suitable for children aged 3+ with their friends & families.
Stick Man is adapted from the book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler.
