Sticky Burr: Adventures in Burrwood Forest by John Lechner

Sticky Burr is an outcast in his village in Burrwood Forest. He just isn't prickly enough. He prefers playing his ukulele and painting to chasing squirrels. He inadvertently embarks on an adventure with his friend Draffle the dragonfly. They become lost in the mysterious Maze Tree. Will Sticky Burr have enough prickles to get them out of the situation? Meanwhile, what is happening back in the village?
A fun graphic novel for the younger crowd, Sticky Burr has humorous illustrations and simple text making it easy to follow. The character started as an on-line comic strip and he even has his own website. Check it out if you are interested. http://stickyburr.com/main.html I look forward to reading more of Sticky's adventures, maybe next time he will go for a wild ride on a grizzly bear!
