When Stick rescues Stone from a prickly situation with a Pinecone, the pair becomes fast friends. But when Stick gets stuck, can Stone return the favour? Author Beth Ferry makes a memorable debut with a warm, rhyming text that includes a subtle anti-bullying message even the youngest reader will understand. New York Times bestselling illustrator Tom Lichtenheld imbues Stick and Stone with energy, emotion, and personality to spare. In this funny story about kindness and friendship, Stick and Stone join George and Martha, Frog and Toad, and Elephant and Piggie, as some of the best friend duos in children's literature. AUTHOR: Beth Ferry loves to wander, explore and mainly laze on the shore, but only in the summer. She enjoyed writing Stick and Stone so much that she's decided to stick with writing picture books. She lives with her husband and three children by the beach in New Jersey. Tom Lichtenheld makes books for children and people who used to be children. He's been fortunate to work with many talented writers, editors, and publishers who've helped him enjoy the best job in the whole wide world. Learn more at tomlichtenheld.com. Colour illustrations

Industry Reviews

"These two characters are a delight to know...and the irresistible cadence of the text should make this a repeat favorite."
--Booklist

* "This warm and tender story of two BFFs is made even more enjoyable by the charming, textured tan and blue illustrations . . . the text, suitable for beginning readers, sweetly expresses what it is to be and to have a good friend."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"Ferry adds zip to the best-friends-forever theme with plenty of sly puns...and Lichtenheld conveys significant expressiveness through the characters' dot eyes and small smiles...The use of instantly recognizable objects as characters gives the story universal appeal, and Ferry makes its moral unmissable."
--Publishers Weekly

"A light, enjoyable approach to a recognizable narrative about making--and helping--friends."
--Kirkus

"Preschoolers looking for a model of good friendship need look no further. Kindness rules the day, and humor, rather than obvious lesson-teaching, moves the story along."
--Horn Book Magazine
