By Charlotte Calder
Illustrated by Mark Jackson

Stuck is the familiar tale of a group of children who first lose a kite up a tree and who then attempt to bring it down with all their other toys.

One warm and windy day, Charlie and his friends decide to fly a kite. It takes off and soars and swoops and plunges… straight into a tree. The kite is stuck. One by one, Charlie’s friends each try to free the kite with their toys – all of which end up stuck in the tree along with the kite. Just when it looks as though everything is stuck forever, the cat loses its footing on a branch and sets off a chain reaction, sending their toys to the ground. But guess who is stuck now?

  • Strong commercial appeal – this is a universal story that children everywhere will find appealing
  • Kids will recognise themselves in the story and the illustrations and they will also love the way the ‘chain reaction’ of events unfolds
  • Featuring illustrations from Mark Jackson, one of the illustrators of Not Like Georgie
