STUCK (edited).jpg


It all began when Floyd got his kite stuck in a tree...The trouble really began when he threw a shoe up to knock the kite loose, and that got stuck too, followed by a ladder, a bucket, an orangutan, and a whale who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. And that was just the start of things.

“Yields a childlike aesthetic sure to tickle the funny bones of its target audience–and of the adults who share the story with youngsters.”

– School Library Journal


“Jeffers’ light-handed illustrations are hilariously droll . . . The giggle-inducing conclusion leaves some stuff, um, up in the air.”

– Kirkus Reviews
