THE STICK

WRITTEN AND ILLUSTRATED BY CLAY RICE

FAMILIUS PUBLISHING

When a rejected boy with no toys or friends finds a stick leaning against a tree, his life begins to change until he discovers the truth about giving.

an immediate comparison to The Giving Tree comes to mind… Intricately cut scenes of black with blazing backgrounds of oranges and purples invite close inspection and awe.

Striking silhouette artwork and elegant typography distinguish Rice’s ode to imagination.
