Stuck | Oliver Jeffers
14 posts | 14 read | 1 to read
From the illustrator of the #1 smash The Day the Crayons Quit comes another bestseller--a giggle-inducing tale of 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.

One of my son‘s new favorite authors. We bought several of #oliverjeffers books when Kohl‘s was selling them along with matching plush toys. He loves all of them, but asked to read this one before bed tonight. A cute picture book about a boy using unconventional methods to get his kite out of a tree. My son gives this a thumbs up and said, “This is like my 3rd favorite book!” ...

AndreaG Love that the text looks handwritten and even has spots where it looks as if Jeffers crossed out his mistakes. It shows kiddos even the pros make mistakes and that is okay. Love the story, illustrations, and the format of the text. 2mo

Oliver Jeffers writes a fantastic MF book about a little boy who gets his kite stuck up in a tree. He has to get it down but how? Starting with throwing his shoe and eventually throwing a whale to get his kite down, things begin to escalate as he desperately tries to get his kite back. This fun book is great for S with fun props that you can get at this link!

Kcompton2912 https://teachmehowptl.blogspot.com/2018/04/spring-literacy-book-companion-for.ht... The UDL principle 1.3, offer alternatives for visual information, and the EL strategy 17, provide contextual support through audio visual, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions, can all be met with this book and storytelling. #UCFLAE3414SU19 6mo
DrSpalding 1.3 and 17 work beautifully! 6mo

Stuck is a fantasy story written by Oliver Jeffers. It is a story about a young boy getting stuff stuck in his tree. It is humorous because it is so unrealistic but interesting to imagine!

Stuck is a RF picture book by Oliver Jeffers that would be best as an IR. The main character Floyd gets his kite stuck in a tree and throws up various items to try and knock it down. It is a light and funny book for children to read independently. #lae3414sp19

jessicabaksh This picture book best relates to ESOL strategy 26 and UDL principle 8.1 11mo

This book makes us laugh! It also reminds me of the time my mom threw a rake into a tree, then threw ANOTHER rake to try to free the first one! 😆

Those rakes ended up being stuck in the tree for two years!!

I'm in a reading slump. I just have no motivation to start anything. And when I do start something, I can't stick with it.

I need to read.

Do you ever just get in a rut & can't start something new??? I've been doing some "pallett cleansing" (podcasts, articles) after finishing two books, but just can't get motivated to start anything. ?

DeleteAcct It's the worst. 😩 3y
Andrew65 Most definitely, quite often struggle to find the next book I want to read. 3y
Lmstraubie @Andrew65 The funny thing is I have so many great ones to pick from, just no desire to do so. 😔 3y

Gezemice Yep. I think it means it is time to do something else for a while. 3y
Andrew65 @Lmstraubie Yes can get me exactly the same way, and often pick up a book determined to start but put it down before the end of the first page and then repeat this with another book, etc... 3y
Lmstraubie @Gezemice You are probably right 🙂 3y
TheBookAddict Yes, I know what you mean! Maybe some short stories might be a good way to ease back in. Or something short and funny, something like Adulthood is a Myth. Or like @Gezemice said, you may need a break. (edited) 3y
Lmstraubie @TheBookAddict Great suggestions! Thanks ☺ 3y

I love all of Oliver Jeffer's books. My littlest one is really enjoying the board book version of A Little Stuck.
