    What a hilarious book! This is the best Drew Daywalt book I have read. I found myself laughing out loud as I read this book. The illustrations are just as entertaining as the text as this duo takes quite an adventure together I?m not sure who I like better in this book, Huggie or ...

    Holy cow, this book is hilarious!! If you loved The Day the Crayons Quit, you will love Huggie & Stick. So darn funny, I was snorting while reading this book. One of my favorites. ...

    The Epic Adventures of Huggie & Stick by Drew Daywalt, illustrated by David Spencer. Philomel (Penguin), 2018. $18. 9780399172762 BUYING ADVISORY: Pre-K, EL (K-3), EL - ESSENTIAL AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH Stickie and Huggie are usually in Reece?s backpack, but one day they f...

    So wanted to like this book. The illustrations are very angry. Perhaps it was meant as funny but that is not the impression I got. Now let's give you a spoiler alert......"Dear Diary, There's a stick up my butt. I hate my life." Yes, that is in a picture book for children. This is one ...

    3.5 stars Laugh out loud diary entries from two perspectives. From the cover, you can see optimistic Stick and his grumpy pessimist friend Huggie. Some of the humor will be appreciated by older kids and lost on the younger. There will no doubt also be some adults who find some of the...

    3 1/2 stars Great for older readers, think some of this would be lost on the younger crowd. Got to say at the start I was super not sure about this as there is a LOT going on (the pages are SUPER busy), but the humor crept up on me, plus it has a page of pirates, so I am bumping it up...

    Not exactly my cup of tea here, but I think young readers will enjoy it. The traditional odd couple here takes the form of a stick and a stuffed animal here. I do like the diary/letter-writing element, and I think the idea found here--presenting two varying account/perspectives of the ...

    When Huggie and Stick fall from an open zipper from Reese's backpack, and due to the accidental bump on the sidewalk the adventure of their lives takes them around the world. As this story unfolds it is told from two different perspectives, it is filled with gleeful joy, or a pessimist...

    As an adult reader, I was bored and didn't finish this adventure story of a stick and a grumpy stuffed animal on an absurd global adventure. Younger readers may find it funny. I was too busy wondering when they had time to write their diaries. ...

    This is a very strange and bitingly humorous story of two beloved possessions who get lost and go on an adventure around the world. I found the book at our local library and was intrigued by the title and cover illustration. The pictures are very colorful and cartoonish, created usi...

    Funny in a very silly way. ...

    Enjoyable read involving conflicting diary entries. ...

    The story and illustrations work together for a tale that will have you and your kid both giggling. Bonus points for spork usage. My kid wants his own copy of this one. ...

    Wonderful fun for young and old in picture book format. ...

    This book might best be suited for older readers (3rd-5th grade) as the humor may go over the heads of younger students. I like that it gets the reader thinking about perspective. Stick has a happy disposition and Huggie just can't seem to catch a break (which likely explains his perma...

    The adventures of Huggie and Stick are told in diary format from each character?s point of view. Stick is an eternal optimist, always seeing the best in every situation. Huggie, on the other hand, is a delight of a pessimist and is regularly complaining and seeing all of the problems...

    The differing perspectives of eternally cheerful Stick and curmudgeonly Huggie are done to full laugh-out-loud effect. This book is the definition of Hilarious! ...

    A humorous tale that older readers are going to really enjoy! Another fun read for thinking about perspective. ...

    When Huggie (stuffed rabbit & committed pessimist...slightly unlucky), and Stick (a stick & eternal optimist...also slightly naive), fall out of Reese's backpack, they get swept away on an epic adventure to all the continents of the world as they try to get home. Oh my goodn...

    Pretty wordy, but I think my second grader will enjoy it. I'll update the review after we read it together. It has a story told in diary format from two different points of view; Stick, an obtuse optimist and Huggie a petulant pessimist. The humor is obviously in the contrasts. The...

    Are they friends? Stick thinks so ... Or are they enemies? Huggie thinks so. When these two fall out of Reese's backpack, their adventure begins. Wait! Did Huggie try to push Stick out? Surely not! Huggie tried to save Stick, right? It depends on who is telling the story. Those pira...

    Drew Daywalt is a supreme storyteller! Picture books are mostly made by the illustrations. They can really make or break a book... but Drew Daywalt isn't an author/illustrator, he's solely the author but his picture book stories are fantastic! Granted, he's had some great illustrators ...

    Only 10 pages in before I decided I HAVE to have this book in my libraries. What a fun read! I have regressed a bunch while reading and laughing out loud at the around the world adventure of this stuffed rabbit and his stick friend. Wow! The imagination of these two genius creators is ...

    I liked it much better after the second reading and kids will lose their minds with the humor. Surly Huggie, the stuffed rabbit, is no match for Stick's exuberance. They fall out of their owner's, Reece, backpack and travel to world to get back to him. Panda's try to eat Stick. Huggie ...

    These two unlikely characters will tickle the funny bones of many kids. The contrasting personalities, voices, and points-of-view of the inseparable Huggie and Stick- exactly the kinds of beloved but benignly-neglected favorite toys of an adventurous boy- allow clever challenges for di...

    This is one of the cutest picture books I've read in a while. Laugh out loud funny, it tells the story of Stick and Huggie, who live in Reese's backpack and are launched into a grand adventure (Stick's perspective) that takes them around the world. Huggie, on the other hand, has a much...

    Huggie is a teddy bear and Stick is, well, a stick, and they're on an adventure around the world. Stick is a naive optomist and Huggie is an inexplicably world-wise pessimist. Every page is first Stick's interpretation of the situation followed by Huggie's grumpy, more accurate descrip...

    3.5 stars Laugh out loud diary entries from two perspectives. From the cover, you can see optimistic Stick and his grumpy pessimist friend Huggie. Some of the humor will be appreciated by older kids and lost on the younger. There will no doubt also be some adults who find some of the...

    3 1/2 stars Great for older readers, think some of this would be lost on the younger crowd. Got to say at the start I was super not sure about this as there is a LOT going on (the pages are SUPER busy), but the humor crept up on me, plus it has a page of pirates, so I am bumping it up...

    Not exactly my cup of tea here, but I think young readers will enjoy it. The traditional odd couple here takes the form of a stick and a stuffed animal here. I do like the diary/letter-writing element, and I think the idea found here--presenting two varying account/perspectives of the ...

    When Huggie and Stick fall from an open zipper from Reese's backpack, and due to the accidental bump on the sidewalk the adventure of their lives takes them around the world. As this story unfolds it is told from two different perspectives, it is filled with gleeful joy, or a pessimist...

    As an adult reader, I was bored and didn't finish this adventure story of a stick and a grumpy stuffed animal on an absurd global adventure. Younger readers may find it funny. I was too busy wondering when they had time to write their diaries. ...

    What a hilarious book! This is the best Drew Daywalt book I have read. I found myself laughing out loud as I read this book. The illustrations are just as entertaining as the text as this duo takes quite an adventure together I?m not sure who I like better in this book, Huggie or ...

    This is a very strange and bitingly humorous story of two beloved possessions who get lost and go on an adventure around the world. I found the book at our local library and was intrigued by the title and cover illustration. The pictures are very colorful and cartoonish, created usi...

    What a great book to study for learning about voice! I love the two different personalities of the main characters that come through in the letters they write. It?s really fun to see two different perspectives on the same experience. The illustrations are great and add to the fun, es...

    Funny in a very silly way. ...

    Enjoyable read involving conflicting diary entries. ...

    The story and illustrations work together for a tale that will have you and your kid both giggling. Bonus points for spork usage. My kid wants his own copy of this one. ...

    Wonderful fun for young and old in picture book format. ...

    This book might best be suited for older readers (3rd-5th grade) as the humor may go over the heads of younger students. I like that it gets the reader thinking about perspective. Stick has a happy disposition and Huggie just can't seem to catch a break (which likely explains his perma...

    The adventures of Huggie and Stick are told in diary format from each character?s point of view. Stick is an eternal optimist, always seeing the best in every situation. Huggie, on the other hand, is a delight of a pessimist and is regularly complaining and seeing all of the problems...

    The differing perspectives of eternally cheerful Stick and curmudgeonly Huggie are done to full laugh-out-loud effect. This book is the definition of Hilarious! ...

    A humorous tale that older readers are going to really enjoy! Another fun read for thinking about perspective. ...

    When Huggie (stuffed rabbit & committed pessimist...slightly unlucky), and Stick (a stick & eternal optimist...also slightly naive), fall out of Reese's backpack, they get swept away on an epic adventure to all the continents of the world as they try to get home. Oh my goodn...

    Pretty wordy, but I think my second grader will enjoy it. I'll update the review after we read it together. It has a story told in diary format from two different points of view; Stick, an obtuse optimist and Huggie a petulant pessimist. The humor is obviously in the contrasts. The...

    Are they friends? Stick thinks so ... Or are they enemies? Huggie thinks so. When these two fall out of Reese's backpack, their adventure begins. Wait! Did Huggie try to push Stick out? Surely not! Huggie tried to save Stick, right? It depends on who is telling the story. Those pira...

    Drew Daywalt is a supreme storyteller! Picture books are mostly made by the illustrations. They can really make or break a book... but Drew Daywalt isn't an author/illustrator, he's solely the author but his picture book stories are fantastic! Granted, he's had some great illustrators ...

    Only 10 pages in before I decided I HAVE to have this book in my libraries. What a fun read! I have regressed a bunch while reading and laughing out loud at the around the world adventure of this stuffed rabbit and his stick friend. Wow! The imagination of these two genius creators is ...

    I liked it much better after the second reading and kids will lose their minds with the humor. Surly Huggie, the stuffed rabbit, is no match for Stick's exuberance. They fall out of their owner's, Reece, backpack and travel to world to get back to him. Panda's try to eat Stick. Huggie ...

    These two unlikely characters will tickle the funny bones of many kids. The contrasting personalities, voices, and points-of-view of the inseparable Huggie and Stick- exactly the kinds of beloved but benignly-neglected favorite toys of an adventurous boy- allow clever challenges for di...

    3 1/2 stars Great for older readers, think some of this would be lost on the younger crowd. Got to say at the start I was super not sure about this as there is a LOT going on (the pages are SUPER busy), but the humor crept up on me, plus it has a page of pirates, so I am bumping it up...

    Not exactly my cup of tea here, but I think young readers will enjoy it. The traditional odd couple here takes the form of a stick and a stuffed animal here. I do like the diary/letter-writing element, and I think the idea found here--presenting two varying account/perspectives of the ...

    When Huggie and Stick fall from an open zipper from Reese's backpack, and due to the accidental bump on the sidewalk the adventure of their lives takes them around the world. As this story unfolds it is told from two different perspectives, it is filled with gleeful joy, or a pessimist...

    As an adult reader, I was bored and didn't finish this adventure story of a stick and a grumpy stuffed animal on an absurd global adventure. Younger readers may find it funny. I was too busy wondering when they had time to write their diaries. ...

    This is a very strange and bitingly humorous story of two beloved possessions who get lost and go on an adventure around the world. I found the book at our local library and was intrigued by the title and cover illustration. The pictures are very colorful and cartoonish, created usi...

    What a great book to study for learning about voice! I love the two different personalities of the main characters that come through in the letters they write. It?s really fun to see two different perspectives on the same experience. The illustrations are great and add to the fun, es...

    Funny in a very silly way. ...

    Enjoyable read involving conflicting diary entries. ...

    The story and illustrations work together for a tale that will have you and your kid both giggling. Bonus points for spork usage. My kid wants his own copy of this one. ...

    Wonderful fun for young and old in picture book format. ...

    This book might best be suited for older readers (3rd-5th grade) as the humor may go over the heads of younger students. I like that it gets the reader thinking about perspective. Stick has a happy disposition and Huggie just can't seem to catch a break (which likely explains his perma...

    The adventures of Huggie and Stick are told in diary format from each character?s point of view. Stick is an eternal optimist, always seeing the best in every situation. Huggie, on the other hand, is a delight of a pessimist and is regularly complaining and seeing all of the problems...

    The differing perspectives of eternally cheerful Stick and curmudgeonly Huggie are done to full laugh-out-loud effect. This book is the definition of Hilarious! ...

    A humorous tale that older readers are going to really enjoy! Another fun read for thinking about perspective. ...

    When Huggie (stuffed rabbit & committed pessimist...slightly unlucky), and Stick (a stick & eternal optimist...also slightly naive), fall out of Reese's backpack, they get swept away on an epic adventure to all the continents of the world as they try to get home. Oh my goodn...

    Pretty wordy, but I think my second grader will enjoy it. I'll update the review after we read it together. It has a story told in diary format from two different points of view; Stick, an obtuse optimist and Huggie a petulant pessimist. The humor is obviously in the contrasts. The...

    Are they friends? Stick thinks so ... Or are they enemies? Huggie thinks so. When these two fall out of Reese's backpack, their adventure begins. Wait! Did Huggie try to push Stick out? Surely not! Huggie tried to save Stick, right? It depends on who is telling the story. Those pira...

    Drew Daywalt is a supreme storyteller! Picture books are mostly made by the illustrations. They can really make or break a book... but Drew Daywalt isn't an author/illustrator, he's solely the author but his picture book stories are fantastic! Granted, he's had some great illustrators ...

    Only 10 pages in before I decided I HAVE to have this book in my libraries. What a fun read! I have regressed a bunch while reading and laughing out loud at the around the world adventure of this stuffed rabbit and his stick friend. Wow! The imagination of these two genius creators is ...

    I liked it much better after the second reading and kids will lose their minds with the humor. Surly Huggie, the stuffed rabbit, is no match for Stick's exuberance. They fall out of their owner's, Reece, backpack and travel to world to get back to him. Panda's try to eat Stick. Huggie ...

    When Huggie (stuffed rabbit & committed pessimist...slightly unlucky), and Stick (a stick & eternal optimist...also slightly naive), fall out of Reese's backpack, they get swept away on an epic adventure to all the continents of the world as they try to get home. Oh my goodn...

    What a hilarious book! This is the best Drew Daywalt book I have read. I found myself laughing out loud as I read this book. The illustrations are just as entertaining as the text as this duo takes quite an adventure together I?m not sure who I like better in this book, Huggie or ...

    Holy cow, this book is hilarious!! If you loved The Day the Crayons Quit, you will love Huggie & Stick. So darn funny, I was snorting while reading this book. One of my favorites. ...

    So wanted to like this book. The illustrations are very angry. Perhaps it was meant as funny but that is not the impression I got. Now let's give you a spoiler alert......"Dear Diary, There's a stick up my butt. I hate my life." Yes, that is in a picture book for children. This is one ...

    3.5 stars Laugh out loud diary entries from two perspectives. From the cover, you can see optimistic Stick and his grumpy pessimist friend Huggie. Some of the humor will be appreciated by older kids and lost on the younger. There will no doubt also be some adults who find some of the...

    3 1/2 stars Great for older readers, think some of this would be lost on the younger crowd. Got to say at the start I was super not sure about this as there is a LOT going on (the pages are SUPER busy), but the humor crept up on me, plus it has a page of pirates, so I am bumping it up...

    Not exactly my cup of tea here, but I think young readers will enjoy it. The traditional odd couple here takes the form of a stick and a stuffed animal here. I do like the diary/letter-writing element, and I think the idea found here--presenting two varying account/perspectives of the ...

    When Huggie and Stick fall from an open zipper from Reese's backpack, and due to the accidental bump on the sidewalk the adventure of their lives takes them around the world. As this story unfolds it is told from two different perspectives, it is filled with gleeful joy, or a pessimist...

    As an adult reader, I was bored and didn't finish this adventure story of a stick and a grumpy stuffed animal on an absurd global adventure. Younger readers may find it funny. I was too busy wondering when they had time to write their diaries. ...

    This is a very strange and bitingly humorous story of two beloved possessions who get lost and go on an adventure around the world. I found the book at our local library and was intrigued by the title and cover illustration. The pictures are very colorful and cartoonish, created usi...

    What a great book to study for learning about voice! I love the two different personalities of the main characters that come through in the letters they write. It?s really fun to see two different perspectives on the same experience. The illustrations are great and add to the fun, es...

    Funny in a very silly way. ...

    Enjoyable read involving conflicting diary entries. ...

    The story and illustrations work together for a tale that will have you and your kid both giggling. Bonus points for spork usage. My kid wants his own copy of this one. ...

    Wonderful fun for young and old in picture book format. ...

    This book might best be suited for older readers (3rd-5th grade) as the humor may go over the heads of younger students. I like that it gets the reader thinking about perspective. Stick has a happy disposition and Huggie just can't seem to catch a break (which likely explains his perma...

    The adventures of Huggie and Stick are told in diary format from each character?s point of view. Stick is an eternal optimist, always seeing the best in every situation. Huggie, on the other hand, is a delight of a pessimist and is regularly complaining and seeing all of the problems...

    Pretty wordy, but I think my second grader will enjoy it. I'll update the review after we read it together. It has a story told in diary format from two different points of view; Stick, an obtuse optimist and Huggie a petulant pessimist. The humor is obviously in the contrasts. The...
