Milking the bandwagon...,
This review is from: Stick Man (Hardcover)
... if it is possible to milk a bandwagon!
I can't stand this book... I liked the Gruffalo, The Smartest Giant etc were OK - but 'Stick Man' is really someone who is out of ideas.
The whole book is an extended pun on 'family tree', the plot is astonishingly weak, and the introduction of Father Christmas at the end smacks of desperation.
I have to say, in fairness, that my children like it well enough - but, though I'll keep some books I hate because they love them, this one was just too awful to put up with for their sake.

Isn't the book supposed to be for your childrens' enjoyment, not yours? ..........and no, you can't milk a bandwagon, you usually jump on one. Try a cow, works alot better.

100% agree. It's bloody awful. And yes, it's for kids, but so are Sharing a Shell, Tabby McTat etc, and they're not crap :)

Let the children be the judges of what appeals to them. My 4 year old (ASD, limited communication) absolutely loves it.
