Stuck is the latest offering from Australian-born, Belfast-raised, author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers.  His previous works include the whimsical and irreverent gems The Incredible Book Eating Boy, Up and Down, and The Way Back Home, and his new picture book Stuck is a wonderful addition to his catalogue.

Stuck tells the tale of young Floyd and his adventures in getting his kite down from the tree.  Should he throw a shoe at it to knock it down?  Or perhaps a bucket of paint, a duck even…?  Jeffers’ understated and subtle text is the prefect accompaniment to his charming illustrations, and should have both parents and kids giggling at Floyd’s efforts.

We’re always excited to receive a new Oliver Jeffers book here at Fairfield Books, in no part due to the author himself being quite dishy! For picture proof see below, no thanks needed…
