Sticky Burr: The Prickly Peril
Sticky Burr Graphic Novel #2
by John Lechner
Somerville, Mass. : Candlewick Press, 2009
Sticky, Mossy, Scurvy and Spiny are back in all their prickly burriness. Sticky thinks that just because burrs look sharp and disagreeable on the outside doesn't mean they have to act that way. He just wishes they could all get along for one day. That is why he is planning a Harvest Fair, complete with variety show. Scurvy and his silly sidekick Spiny decide they will put a stop to this ridiculous fair. They enlist the aid of the only burr to ever be banned by the community, Burweena! Check out this hilarious graphic novel to find out if their plan works or not! And if you haven't read the first one, Sticky Burr: Adventures in Burrwood Forest, grab that one too. These are great graphic novels for younger readers. The illustrations are engaging as are the characters. Who knew I would ever find a burr adorable?
