Check It Out Tuesday: STUCK by Oliver Jeffers


When this one came into my library, I took it home that very night to read with my boys, even though they’re 9 and 12. Because our house has a low front eave and at any given moment, there is usually a football, an airplane, a boomerang, a dog biscuit (don’t ask), Nerf darts, sticks, a Frisbee, a pirate sword, or a baseball hat stuck up there.

Just like the kid and his kite and the tree in this book*.


*At least we’ve never had a whale up there.
