Not that Stick Kid isn't an extreme XXL tearjerker because it is. Times infinity. But it's also totally lovely, too, in that it speaks to a child's understanding of parenting and creativity and love and loss and change. It is a book about care taking from a child's perspective.
Alexa for giving Archer this book as a gift years ago. Alexa also introduced us to Iggy Peck, Architect back in the day. She's amazing at knowing all the best kids' books. One of the great perks of being an author, herself. Thanks, A.
P.S. This would make an amazing graduation gift. Or wedding gift. Or new baby gift. Or Father's Day gift. Or just because gift.
UPDATED: This book is apparently out of print which is extremely frustrating/I apologize for not knowing this until now. Sorry about that! In the meantime, you can buy it used on Amazon.
