    What a hilarious book! This is the best Drew Daywalt book I have read. I found myself laughing out loud as I read this book. The illustrations are just as entertaining as the text as this duo takes quite an adventure together I’m not sure who I like better in this book, Huggie or Stick. Huggie and Stick spend most of their day in the backpack of Reese, a little boy, as he goes about his day. One day, the pair find themselves falling out of Reese’s backpack and their story begins.

Huggie and Stick spend most of their day in the backpack of Reese, a little boy, as he goes about his day. One day, the pair find themselves falling out of Reese’s backpack and their story begins. Just thinking about this book makes me laugh. Stick is having the time of his life as they try to find their way home. Stick is thrilled and amazed with their adventures. He’s delighted and excited about everything they encounter. He sees everything through rose-colored glasses. Huggie, on the other hand is just the opposite. Huggie’s sarcastic tones and his familiarity with these events, puts their travels into perspective. I found myself reading this book multiple times as it’s hilarious the way that each character describes the world they see. Ironically, they both are correct. This is a large square book and the illustrations are wonderfully done. Using glossy paper, these bright illustrations pop-out and I could feel the energy of Stick as he enjoyed this journey and looking at Huggie, I knew exactly how he felt as he listened and watched Stick in each encounter. What a gem! This book is worth more than 5 stars, I really love it! It comes with a glowing recommendation. “BEST trip ever!” “Today we were rescued by these nice guys in super awesome hats.” “Huggie kinda barfed on the one with the biggest hat and they had us try out their diving board.” (Stick) “WORST trip ever.” “Today we were captured by pirates.” “I got seasick on their captain, then they made us walk the plank.” (Huggie)

    What a great book to study for learning about voice! I love the two different personalities of the main characters that come through in the letters they write. It’s really fun to see two different perspectives on the same experience. The illustrations are great and add to the fun, especially the little doodle drawings on the letters. I can see this being a big hit with kids because it's so funny!

    The story and illustrations work together for a tale that will have you and your kid both giggling. Bonus points for spork usage. My kid wants his own copy of this one.

    When Huggie and Stick fall from an open zipper from Reese's backpack, and due to the accidental bump on the sidewalk the adventure of their lives takes them around the world. As this story unfolds it is told from two different perspectives, it is filled with gleeful joy, or a pessimistic nightmare. Read and decide for yourself.

    As an adult reader, I was bored and didn't finish this adventure story of a stick and a grumpy stuffed animal on an absurd global adventure. Younger readers may find it funny. I was too busy wondering when they had time to write their diaries.

    3.5 stars Laugh out loud diary entries from two perspectives. From the cover, you can see optimistic Stick and his grumpy pessimist friend Huggie. Some of the humor will be appreciated by older kids and lost on the younger. There will no doubt also be some adults who find some of the humor inappropriate while kids are laughing about Huggie's butt. Pirates, pandas, piranhas and more make life difficult for Huggie and a grand adventure for Stick. The artwork is bold and colorful.

    The differing perspectives of eternally cheerful Stick and curmudgeonly Huggie are done to full laugh-out-loud effect. This book is the definition of Hilarious!

    The adventures of Huggie and Stick are told in diary format from each character’s point of view. Stick is an eternal optimist, always seeing the best in every situation.

Stick is an eternal optimist, always seeing the best in every situation.

As the two friends make their way around the world and visit each continent, readers will delight in the humor on the page and enjoy the way the two points of view show the same voyage from very differing points of view. Daywalt has a way with humor, creating wonderful timing on each page. He knows when to use plenty of text and other times to let the humor just sit for a moment on the page. The juxtaposition of the two characters is written with flair. Readers may at first be drawn to Stick the optimist but by the end I was entirely in Huggie’s camp as he bore the brunt of the journey. The humor is all the better for the illustrations which show Huggie steadily falling apart on their journey and the ramshackle ways that Stick helps patch him back together. A journey definitely worth taking, this one would be great to share aloud with elementary-age children. Appropriate for ages 5-7.

    Pretty wordy, but I think my second grader will enjoy it. I'll update the review after we read it together. It has a story told in diary format from two different points of view; Stick, an obtuse optimist and Huggie a petulant pessimist. The humor is obviously in the contrasts. The only thing that was weird is that there's an episode in South America where Stick gets hollowed out and used as to shoot blow darts. That's a bit odd, I doubt there are too many people left who are still doing that. S Pretty wordy, but I think my second grader will enjoy it. I'll update the review after we read it together.

That's a bit odd, I doubt there are too many people left who are still doing that. Sort of a 'South Americans are still savages' feel to it that is strange in a modern picture book. Now, if it would have said that some children did it, that would ring true. Other than that, it was cute and funny.

    I liked it much better after the second reading and kids will lose their minds with the humor. Surly Huggie, the stuffed rabbit, is no match for Stick's exuberance. They fall out of their owner's, Reece, backpack and travel to world to get back to him. Panda's try to eat Stick. Huggie loses his arm and Stick replaces it with a spork. Penguins "nom nom nom" on both Stick and Huggie even though Huggie is certain he tastes like a sock. Pretty hilarious.

    These two unlikely characters will tickle the funny bones of many kids. The contrasting personalities, voices, and points-of-view of the inseparable Huggie and Stick- exactly the kinds of beloved but benignly-neglected favorite toys of an adventurous boy- allow clever challenges for discussion. There is just enough "reality" anchoring their AROUND-THE-WORLD-IN-A-WEEK adventure to provide "meat" for geography and nature exploration, with the wacky and contrasting perceptions of the pair inviting These two unlikely characters will tickle the funny bones of many kids.

    This is one of the cutest picture books I've read in a while. Laugh out loud funny, it tells the story of Stick and Huggie, who live in Reese's backpack and are launched into a grand adventure (Stick's perspective) that takes them around the world. Huggie, on the other hand, has a much different take on the situation and their alternating diaries allow you to peek inside their internal thoughts of the trip. Whether you are a Huggie or a Stick in real life, you are sure to enjoy this read. Highly This is one of the cutest picture books I've read in a while.

    Just read this morning in anticipation of recommending some newly received books to our Story Time patrons. This book was a blast! The text, written as diary entries between the titular characters, highlights their polar opposite personalities and how they tackle being separated from the boy that owns them as they bounce around the world on an epic adventure. There is a nice balance of fun extras in the artwork and in the text that both kids and parents can enjoy the ride.

    The Epic Adventures of Huggie & Stick, the adventures of Huggie, a stuffed animal and Stick, his companion after they bounce out of their kids backpack is kind of a hoot, although I'm not sure really young tots would get the humor. Somehow they manage to adventure on every continent before they get home, with Stick having a grand time, "Golly gumdrops, Huggie and I make a GREAT team." and Huggie, not so much, Dear Diary, Can you say "HORRIBLE!"?"

    3 1/2 stars Great for older readers, think some of this would be lost on the younger crowd. Got to say at the start I was super not sure about this as there is a LOT going on (the pages are SUPER busy), but the humor crept up on me, plus it has a page of pirates, so I am bumping it up half a star. I really enjoyed the contrasting viewpoints--the little asides and the snarkiness kept me going all the way to the end--though I groaned at the ending.

    Not exactly my cup of tea here, but I think young readers will enjoy it. The traditional odd couple here takes the form of a stick and a stuffed animal here. I do like the diary/letter-writing element, and I think the idea found here--presenting two varying account/perspectives of the same events--would make for an excellent classroom tool to talk about perspective, opinion, and bias with kids. Thanks to Penguin Young Readers for the review copy.

    I didn't have very high hopes for this one because I wasn't a fan of the rock, paper, scissors books he did and visually the cover made me think it was going to be very similar. When I read the first set of letters by Stick and Huggie I actually laughed out loud for real. I love that he shows all the events throughout the book from the two very different perspectives of Huggie and Stick. Poor Huggie sure does have a rough trip! This was very entertaining.

    Terri

    Limited expository text and journal entries from the exuberant Stick, a small stick of wood, and Huggie, an irascible stuffed rabbit, explain the adventures encountered by the two after falling from a joy’s backpack. The widely varying accounts of the two demonstrate the difference made by attitude and perspective.

    Told via diary entries as Huggie and Stick travel around the world after falling out of their owner's backpack. Stick is an optimist who sees the best in every encounter. Huggie is a pessimist who sees the problems. Readers will enjoy the humor in each encounter as they end up on every continent. Daywalt slips some geography and native species along with the humor.

    Stick and Huggie (stuffed animal) fall out of a boy's backpack and take an around the world adventure. Stick thinks the trip is awesome (b/c he is not so bright) and Huggie is being eaten at every continent. I think it's too long for a read aloud

    I wasn’t sure my 3 and 4 year old nephews would follow this. It’s told in a series of diary entries - one per character per episode, from 2 different POVs. And the stuffed bunny is kind of mean. But the 4-year old LOVED it. Guess we have a budding cynic on our hands...

    We laughed out loud as we read this one tonight! Sometimes the illustrations were a bit busy--not sure what to look at in what order--but they were still enjoyable. The voices of both characters were distinctive and entertaining.

    I want to frame the pages of this book they're so beautifully illustrated. The pages also have a great thick texture that I like in picture books. Minus one star for inappropriate humor. (A stick up his butt, was that really necessary?)

    A stick and stuffed animal fall out of a boy's backpack and have an adventure all around the world. Told in competing letters, each tells the story in a different way. Fun and creative. Elementary and up

    Adult and older students will like/appreciate more than K-2 crowd. I laughed out loud. Will be fun to read aloud, but I will have to practice this one. The font was small and scripted-difficult for me to read/see. The delivery/tone of voice has to be just right.
