This is a read-along edition with audio synced to the text, performed by Terence Stamp.
Delightful chaos ensues when a young boy gets his kite stuck up a tree in this laugh-out-loud new picture book from award-winning, internationally best-selling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers! Narrated by Terence Stamp.
Floyd gets his kite stuck up 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… 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?
A hilarious book with a wonderful surprise ending.

My five year old and I enjoyed this marvellous book as much as each other! More wonderful drawings from Mr. Jeffers and hilarious dialogue, we absolutely loved it. Highly recommended by adult and child.
Who knows what will get in that tree next
The book was going so well, the story is great, me and my son were looking forward to finding out what happened in the end, but all of a sudden at page 30 the story stops making sense? Everything gets stuck, the firemen, then on the next page its half way through a sentence... Very disappointing as i have just paid £2.50 for a book which makes no sense... I dont know how i go about getting a refund, but that's what i would be doing if i bought it in a shop
