Long-awaited sequel to Sticky Burr now available!

urlI am a huge fan of John Lechner’s graphic novel Sticky Burr: Adventures in Burrwood Forest, and I have been waiting a year for the sequel! Yeah!

Do you know what a burr is? If you’ve ever walked in an overgrown field and gotten little spiky round things stuck to your pant legs, those are burrs. They’re parts of a plant; seedcases that are rough and prickly. Now imagine a little village full of burrs that have different personalities: some are nice, some not so nice. Sticky Burr is one of the nice ones. He likes to paint and play his ukulele and he just wants everyone to get along.

In the first book, Adventures in Burrwood Forest, he saves the village from the wild dogs, with the help of his best friend Draffle, a dragonfly. In the brand new sequel, The Prickly Peril, the spotlight is on Burrwood Forest’s bad guy, Scurvy Burr. Sticky Burr has decided to have a fall Harvest Fair, which Scurvy Burr and his sidekick Spiny Burr think is not a very “prickly”, burr-like thing to do. To stop the fair, they must travel to Spooky Glen to get some help from the evil Burweena. Can they stop the Harvest Fair? Can Sticky Burr triumph again over the bad guys? I think you will really enjoy this slightly spooky, humorous adventure about a very loveable burr.

    I thought this book was HILARIOUS! It was just as good as the first one and all of the jokes were so funny. I love Sticky Burr, Mossy Burr, Draffle and all the Burrs in Burr village. This book was AWESOME!!!!

  2. marta Says:

    it was very funny and I really liked it. It is good for people who like graphic novels because there are so many pictures. I think everyone should read it because books usually have human characters and this one has BURRS!

    I think it is a great book. It was a adventure book because in both of the books Sticky Burr gets kinda lost. The 1st book he gets lost in the maze. The second book he gets thrown in by beetles.
