Stick Man is that guy you see around town but don't really know very well. Everywhere you go, there he is, crossing the street, waiting for the bus, issuing warnings about potential disasters at sea and on land, at the mall and at work. But when he's not offering advice, what does a day in the life of Stick Man actually look like? This catastrophe-packed book uses images derived from real signs to follow a continuous narrative as Stick Man navigates the perils of a single, hilariously bad day. Everyone has had that day that just keeps getting worse, but Stick Man's adventures show readers both what a bad day really looks like, and that in the end it's never really quite as bad as it may seem. It's the perfect pick-me-up for when life, or a forklift, knocks you down.
