Stanley's Stick, Paperback / softback Book

Stanley's Stick Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Neal Layton

Paperback / softback


Stanley's Stick is a teaming-up of hefty talents - glorious poet John Hegley and award-winning illustrator Neal Layton.

Stanley's stick is not just a stick. With a stick in hand, Stanley's options are endless - he flies to the moon, writes in the sand, goes fishing, plays a whistle and rides a dinosaur - and his imagination takes over and the magic begins.

Hegley's lyrical prose captures the free-wheeling expressiveness of childhood, and Layton's deceptively simple illustrations are full of wit and character.

Sweet, magical and thoroughly entertaining, this is Hegley and Layton's first collaboration.
