Written and illustrated by Anna Doherty
Badger has a lovely present to wrap for Owl’s birthday, however, he seems to have chosen a very sticky roll of tape and now he’s stuck! Badger’s friends try to lend a helping hoof and paw but everyone gets stuck! Can anyone help them escape from their sticky situation?
This story is really sweet and funny. I know many of us will be able to empathise with Badger, wrapping presents can be a complete mission!
Anna’s wonderful illustration style make the creatures in this story look freshly drawn. I love the texture she creates with the badger’s fur and the way in which she captured all of the animals getting stuck in the sticky tape.
THE AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATION
Anna Doherty is an illustrator (and author) from Scotland. Anna has completed a degree in illustration and a Master’s in children’s illustration. She is definitely our kind of person because she loves dogs and pizza, woo! This month has been a busy month for Anna because not only was Sticky published, her new book “The Brontës: The Fantastically Feminist (and Totally True) Story of the Astonishing Authors” was also published! It looks awesome and so does her book “Michelle Obama: The Fantastically Feminist (and Totally True) Story of the Inspirational Activist and Campaigner” which will be published in the autumn this year!
A funny story about a sticky situation that all adults who hate wrapping presents can empathise with.
