I'll be reading this picture book to the littler kids at school book fairs this fall. Fabulous art work & great point/counterpoint story telling by Stick & Huggie as they see the same adventure from two very different perspectives.

* "A surefire read-aloud for any wannabe hero." --Booklist (starred review)
From Drew Daywalt, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Day the Crayons Quit, comes a hilarious buddy-comedy picture book starring a grouchy stuffed bunny and a happy-go-lucky stick.
When super cheerful Stick and grumpy stuffed bunny Huggie get thrown from a backpack, the adventure is on! Together this odd couple survives encounters with sea-faring pirates, raging rhinos in Africa, sword-wielding royalty in Europe, stick-eating panda bears in Asia, sharks in Australia, hungry penguins in Antarctica, and piranhas in South America--all before finally making it home to North America. A fantastically funny read-aloud about two unlikely friends and their epic journey around the world.

The Epic Adventures of Huggie & Stick is his debut picture book.
"Debuting illustrator Spencer’s cartoonish illustrations pair well with Daywalt’s text of two travelers, heightening the characters’ incongruity through facial expressions and body language." -- Publishers Weekly
