Summary from Walker Books
Little Puppy has discovered a STICK and sticks are a LOT of fun. With abounding enthusiasm, he goes in search of a playmate. He sees Bird – aha! – someone to play with! But Bird would much rather eat juicy worms. Hmmm … what about Cow? Or Pig? Who will be Puppy's friend?
With about one word to each page, I was in fits of giggles as the story progressed, especially when puppy does a very good Eeyore-type expression when everything goes wrong. I loved this so much I sent it on to an extremely stressed friend in the final stages of her PhD - she loves it too! Picture books are for everyone ^o^
Another book all with the heroine on a big search is Wanda Wallaby Finds Her Bounce by Johnathan Emmett
