Not a Stick product reviews

A beautifully designed book, celebrating the power of the imagination to transform even the most ordinary of objects into something magical. A stick is just a stick! Unless it's not a stick. From fishing rod to dragon-taming sword, a small pig shows that a stick will go as far as the imagination allows. Antoinette Portis captures the thrill of when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes reality. Her simple, spare text and illustrations show that seeing truly depends on the ability to believe in the possibilities.

We borrowed this book from the library, it was one of several that my 4yo son grabbed at random, but by the time it was returned it was the most read book out of all the ones that he grabbed.

When I opened the book, I was a bit dubious about the lack of writing, and the fact that it relied heavily upon ones imagination, but, once my son and I really got into it, there was no problems with it at all. He just loved trying to think exactly what the stick was portraying, and it was a lot of fun to see what he could come up with. Even my 3yo got into the book with great delight.

A wonderful, yet delightfully simple book. Well worth the read.

This book is very simplistic, with large outline drawings that allow you and your childs imagination to go wild. There is definitely no stick in this book!

This book demonstrates that it is not a stick in the picture, however it also doesn't tell you what it is trying to be as each person will come up with a different idea to the next person.

I love how the pictures and the writing are bold. It really attracts you to the book. This story has been a real hit for my 3 year old daughter, who's imagination is just starting to shine through.
