Too old for Stick Man?
This weekend we all sat down together and watched Stick Man DVD. Watching a film together is one of our favourite family pastimes for those wet and windy days or those days when everyone just needs to chill out a bit. It gives us the perfect excuse to spend some quality time together.
Stick Man did not disappoint. It’s a story we have been reading for years but haven’t looked at in a while and there’s always something endearing to watching it played out on your television screen. Did it match what you had been seeing in your head?
Yes, it did!
Stick Man is written by Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, another of our favourite films. The tale is about a journey where Stick Man gets in to all sorts of trouble and it seems the more he tries to get back home the further he travels away.
Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their three stick children and one day he goes on an unintentional journey. His epic journey takes him through different seasons and he encounters many obstacles on his way but he’s not an ordinary stick,
He’s Stick Man, he’s Stick Man, he’s Stick Man, you see.
Axel Scheffler’s fabulous illustrations are brought to life and we enjoyed the 27 minute film snuggled up on the sofa enchanted by the little man and wishing him to get back home.
