Stick Man Schadenfruede

Those of us who think we can’t draw have always relied on Stick Man.  My mom taught me how easy it was to draw him (and, alas, put an end to his short, happy life) in our earliest “Hangman” games, and I filled many a page with stick figures—climbing mountains, sailing the high seas, blowing each other up—during my elementary school years.

this was my favorite book so far. not only has Petey improved as a character a lot, become more considerate, and more of a dad to li'l Petey, but the book is more about li'l Petey than anything! I love his character, and his story is such a strong message to be aimed towards kids. originally, this book series was about dog man, just fighting, but now it's all about li'l Petey trying to teach his father to love, and change. Petey was never prepared for parenthood, like most other parents, and he has already changed so much! to be honest, I just really love this book!

why do they have it in library not in the stores first you buy it at the store and you can keep it but here you have too wait a long time because everybody wants it.

okay how I got to know this book is.

first I was at school u know just a normal day then when it was reading time I saw that everybody was reading it well everybody wanted to read it then once I started reading it I was like wow this is a good book then I read the second even BETTER so then the third not bad but okay it wasn't the best but still fine it was kind of bad but the fourth was interesting so I thought I should not read it yet because I needed a little break of dog man then I finally read some of and said to myself I need to stop reading now cause I wanted to save it but I really really really wanted to read it because its cool and awesome and sad but it got better.
like if u think too cause this is better then the 5th has more but when does the new one come out ? ;) have a good day! and guys the people that did five stars you make no sense because you haven't even read it and you do five star you actually have to read it first before u put a star on it.
