Stuck, by Oliver Jeffers

Another fine book from Oliver Jeffers to trigger the niece and nephew's imaginations and propel some funny "how"s and "why"s :)> The pictures as with all Oliver Jeffers' books are five-star and as self-explanatory as can be. And a good array of items and animals and objects that feature in the book (and get stuck in the tree!) to introduce the kids to. With the niece (aged 6) I ask questions like "what should he have done with the saw" or "how should he have used the ladder", and with the nephew (aged 3) as we progress through the story he counts the number of things stuck in the tree (and with each reading recollects more names). Good story and well-executed.
