    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...

    Limited expository text and journal entries from the exuberant Stick, a small stick of wood, and Huggie, an irascible stuffed rabbit, explain the adventures encountered by the two after falling from a joy?s backpack. The widely varying accounts of the two demonstrate the difference m...

    We read a ton of picture books so I don't always review them. I bought this for my babes while I was at a conference. We love "The Day the Crayons Quit" and this was a great followup of the style. Great conversations about point-of-view, 'fake news'/two sides to every story, humor, lan...

    The kid-appeal makes this deserving of 5 stars. Older readers will laugh out loud (at least I did) at some of the predicaments Huggie & Stick find themselves in (or at least the perception of some of the predicaments). Great book for perception! ...

    Adult and older students will like/appreciate more than K-2 crowd. I laughed out loud. Will be fun to read aloud, but I will have to practice this one. The font was small and scripted-difficult for me to read/see. The delivery/tone of voice has to be just right. ...

    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...

    Any picture book that gets my husband to laugh out loud is an automatic 'fabulous' from me. The book is a story of two "friends," as told by their individual diary entries. Two very different points of view of the same situation. Hysterical. Mr. Daywalt, don't stop writing books. ...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    One stick's lemonade is one stuffed bunny's lemons - Life all depends on point-of-view! Very funny adventure with two friends traveling the world. ...

    Kids will love this (got butt in twice) and although it has the same irreverance of all his anthropromorphized objects books, the continents and travel will probably mskecit a hit with teachers as well. ...

    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 ...

    Just read this morning in anticipation of recommending some newly received books to our Story Time patrons. This book was a blast! The text, written as diary entries between the titular characters, highlights their polar opposite personalities and how they tackle being separated from t...

    I want to frame the pages of this book they're so beautifully illustrated. The pages also have a great thick texture that I like in picture books. Minus one star for inappropriate humor. (A stick up his butt, was that really necessary?) ...

    Told via diary entries as Huggie and Stick travel around the world after falling out of their owner's backpack. Stick is an optimist who sees the best in every encounter. Huggie is a pessimist who sees the problems. Readers will enjoy the humor in each encounter as they end up on ever...

    The Epic Adventures of Huggie & Stick, the adventures of Huggie, a stuffed animal and Stick, his companion after they bounce out of their kids backpack is kind of a hoot, although I'm not sure really young tots would get the humor. Somehow they manage to adventure on every continen...

    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...

    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...

    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! ...

    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...

    We laughed out loud as we read this one tonight! Sometimes the illustrations were a bit busy--not sure what to look at in what order--but they were still enjoyable. The voices of both characters were distinctive and entertaining. ...

    As an adult, I found this book absolutely hilarious and couldn't stop laughing. My older children also enjoyed it, but some of it was completely lost on the younger crowd. Older kids will LOVE this picture book and it is perfect for teaching about perspective! ...

    A little too long for a story time book but I absolutely loved this story and the drawings. It's a perfect fun story but it also has the ability to go deeper to explore how there is always multiple sides to a story/outlooks on life! ...
