Floyd's kite is stuck in a tree and he's determined to free it. However it remains elusive as he throws the most incongruous items to do his bidding, and they, too, become stuck. An absurdly funny story deftly handled--a book worth rescuing from any tree. — Jessica Wood


An homage to everything tossed, thrown, and hurled in order to free a kite
When Floyd's kite gets stuck in a tree, he's determined to get it out. But how? Well, by knocking it down with his shoe, of course. But strangely enough, it too gets stuck. And the only logical course of action . . . is to throw his other shoe. Only now it's stuck Surely there must be something he can use to get his kite unstuck. An orangutan? A boat? His front door? Yes, yes, and yes. And that's only the beginning. "Stuck" is Oliver Jeffers' most absurdly funny story since "The Incredible Book-Eating Boy." Childlike in concept and vibrantly illustrated as only Oliver Jeffers could, here is a picture book worth rescuing from any tree.
