Book Description

Stanley Stickle hates homework and he'll do almost anything to get out of it.

In this, the first short book in the series, Stanley gets a shock when he discovers that every pupil in the school is to be given EXTRA homework in preparation for the BIG TEST. Stanley is appalled at this assault on his human rights and will do just about anything to avoid the extra work. Stanley thinks up a cunning plan, a master plan, the best plan that anyone ever planned...ever. Only it doesn't quite work, so it's on to Plan B... then Plan C...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read for All 10 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oh how my children related to this book. If Stanley Stickle put as much time into doing his homework as he did avoiding it he would be top of the class! How many of us can relate to the homework battles faced by childrena nd parents alike. My reluctant reader certainly related to this story and enjoyed reading it.

Aimed at children, but enjoyed by adults as well, this book is well written and fast moving, lifelike, funny and definately recommended!

I loved this! I'm definitely not in the target age range for it but it was nevertheless a really fun, pacy read and what a character Stanley is. You can't help liking him while knowing that things might not work out quite the way he planned. I chuckled at his manoeuvring to try and get ill so he could avoid extra homework and the Big Test and, as with all of Trevor's books, he injects a good dose of humour into the story with an incredibly deft touch. The Kiss scene had me laughing and squirming simultaneously, especially when Stanley had been thinking of the other things he'd rather do than kiss Soppy Sonia or be her boyfriend! This is a terrific, fun read for kids of all ages.

This book is a fun read for children of all ages. I'm not in the target age group but my children are. The book made me laugh and I think it will be of great interest to readers who enjoy Horrid Henry.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've been stickled! 22 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fun character Stanley is. Are children really this cunning? YES!!!! Whilst probably not in the target age range for this book, I loved it from the first page. Trevor Belshaw has created a character who we all know or have known and will love for years to come. I can't wait to read of more antics from Stanley. The artwork for the story is great too.

Stanley Stickle Hates Homework Review
By Caitlin Nedahl aged nearly 10

My Grandmother bought me the book Stanley Stickle Hates Homework by Trevor Forest.
I really enjoyed reading the book which is all about Stanley who will do anything to get out of doing his homework. He even kisses Soppy Sonia who just might have Chicken Pox so he can get out of doing a big test in school. In the end though, Stanley really does get ill with Scarlet Fever and this means that he misses the football that his Dad managed to get tickets for. Stanley suddenly realises that homework is not so bad.
This story made me laugh and I rate it 10 out of 10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Giggles all the way! 24 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this book for my 9 year old son knowing the title alone would grab him! He's not a fast reader and his attention span is that of a small insect but he read this in four days - that's super quick for him - and loved it. He thinks it's a perfect book for his age group and particularly liked all the 'gross bits' - his words not mine! It was great to see his attention held by something other than a computer game so, thank you Mr Forest!

This is the book that set my nine year old grandson firmly on the road to independent reading. I downloaded it for him on my Kindle and he was engrossed. Up until then he always needed to read with an adult to enjoy a story, and much preferred to be read to, rather than read independently. He then read "Stanley Stickle does not have a girlfriend" and within days was dragging his parents into Waterstones for David Walliams' books. Just a few months later he was loving Percy Jackson and now has read all The Heroes of Olympus novels. He says "Stanley Stickle made me laugh and want to read more, so I read the next book and now love reading." In the space of just over a year his progress has been phenomenal. So well done, Trevor, you have a real talent for writing for reluctant readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read for the child in all of us. 26 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Stanley Stickle is a thoroughly entertaining, laugh out loud, read that most of us, young and old, will be able to relate to in some way. The story is nicely paced, with short chapters making it user friendly for children who see reading more as something they have to do rather than something that is fun. My 8yr old son, who does enjoy reading, read it in two sittings. He said the book was, `really really good. The barfing scene was dead funny and Soppy Sonia is gross. Yuk!'
