Stick Man's Really Bad Day by Steve Mockus

Stick Man's Really Bad Day by Steve Mockus - 140 pages

This is the story of a day in the life of stick man as told through signs found around the world. 

This book was on YALSA's 2014 Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers.  It is truly a very quick read.  There is no text in the book other than the one-page introduction.  The story is told completely through signs.  I found the book to be hilarious.  I was amazed at some of the signs that can be found around the world.  I also thought it was well done in that it told a cohesive story and kept the flow going throughout the day.

Here is my favorite sign from the book.  
Amazingly enough, this sign can be found in California. 
Who knew California had such a problem with falling cows?

  1. LOL- they probably have a problem with theft of that sign, since it's awesome.
