This is a great book! The drawings are such fun to look at and I love the format of the story. Really enjoyed this!

I never thought I would read a story about anthropomorphized burrs. That's why John Lechner has published books and I have not, he has way more imagination! Sticky Burr usually spends his time playing the ukulele and painting, but when trouble arises, he's the one the other burrs look to for good ideas. This book combines graphic novel storytelling with pages describing life in the village, the forest, etc. Rich fictional world, cute talking burrs, what's not to love?

(One caution: there's a mean-spirited burr, but I still think this is fine for even little kids. It's so funny how the jerk burr always loses and gets so frustrated.)

Sticky Burr might be covered in tiny hooks, but his personality is far from prickly. Told in graphic novel format, interspersed with pages from Sticky's journal, this series of fast-paced adventures follows the likeable little burr as he escapes from bullies, navigates the twists of the Maze Tree, rescues a lightning-bug princess, and returns home in time to save the forest from a fearsome pack of wild dogs. With zippy, pun-laden dialogue and earth-toned illustrations Sticky Burr will satisfy fans of Doreen Cronin's Diary of a Worm.
