What did you think of Stick Man?

Martin Freeman, Jennifer Saunders, and Hugh Bonneville brought the magical picture book to life. Was it barking mad? Or did it take root in your heart?

Julia Donaldson’s delightful picture book, Stick Man, isn’t as well known as The Gruffalo but that didn’t stop it from wending its way to the small screen with an all-star cast. Martin Freeman gave us his take on Stick Man himself whilst Jennifer Saunders lent her dulcet tones to the narration in this 90 minute feature.


The key ingredients for a great Christmas outing were there, but did it all come together for you? The magic of children’s books can be quickly lost once they leave the page, but did Stick Man manage to retain what made the original so wonderful?
