The lovely people at Egmont know how much we love their books so they sent LP one of their new ones as they thought she’d like it. Stop Sticking Stan! has to be one of the most fun and vibrant books I have ever seen and I don’t know about LP but I wanted to read it straight away!
Stop Sticking Stan! is about a boy who loves to collect things – At first he collected random things but then he started to collect stickers – and stick them everywhere! This book was one I could relate to from my own childhood – All children love to stick stickers on things – Especially places they shouldn’t really stick them – On their bed, on their bedroom door. Reading a book to LP that sounds familiar to me is always appealing.
We loved reading Stop Sticking Stan! and LP loved the bright colours in the pages and we spent a long time spotting different stickers in each illustration. LP really loved the pictures and I loved how reading the book took longer than normal because each picture was so detailed and had so much to look at – For me the pictures really sell this book, it’s one that I want to look at again and again.
The only slight disappointment for us was that the enclosed sticker sheet, although lovely and colourful and a great addition to the book, wasn’t printed correctly. I wasn’t able to even show the stickers to LP as if we’d peeled them off she would have ended up with half of each picture missing. This was a shame but didn’t detract from the story.
Stop Sticking Stan! is a lovely book that would appeal to any child. If you’re looking for a new book for your children or a present then Stop Sticking Stan! may be the one for you!
Stop Sticking Stan! has an RRP of £6.99
