SYNOPSIS
Based on the book by the award-winning Oliver Jeffers, author of Up and Down, Lost and Found, The Way Back Home and Incredible Book Eating Boy, returns with a tale about a little boy in a very sticky situation!

It all begins when Floyd gets his kite stuck in a tree...

He throws up his shoe to shift it, but that gets stuck too. So he throws up his other shoe and that gets stuck along with…  the cat, a ladder, a pot of paint, the kitchen sink, an orang-utan and a whale, amongst other things!

Will Floyd ever get his kite back???

For ages 3+
