Waterstones Says

Filled with all of Michael Rosen’s trademark humour and humanity, this moving and inspirational picture book details the author’s recovery from coronavirus and is a wonderful testament to perseverance, compassion and kindness.

A powerful and personal story from one of Britain's best-loved authors about his recovery from coronavirus.

After being admitted to hospital in 2020 with coronavirus, Michael Rosen had to learn to walk again. With the support of doctors and nurses and a walking stick he names "Sticky McStickstick", he manages to embark on the slow steps to recovery.

This moving picture book from the former Children's Laureate, with illustrations from Tony Ross, tells a story of perseverance and hope, and is a testament to the importance of overcoming fear and learning to accept help.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Both powerful and personal, this offers reassurance on recovery from illness and building resilience. - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

[Michael Rosen] is open and honest about how the experiences feel, allowing children and families to have a space in which to talk about difficult topics. - BookTrust

It manages to be funny as well as moving. - The Sunday Times & The Sunday Times Ireland

Few writers and illustrators could make geriatric, post-Covid rehab a jolly subject for a children’s story; this being Rosen and Ross, miraculously, they more than manage it. - The Times

This astonishing capacity to address pain with humour is what gave rise to his new book: Sticky McStickstick a picture book written with levity that nevertheless prompts a lump in the throat. - Books for Keeps
