Jack and the Magnificent Ugly Stick by Jack Goudie

How much fun can you have with just one rubber boot? When one of his Grandmother’s pink rubber boots goes missing, Jack and his grandmother are forced to cancel their fishing trip. A disappointed Jack soon finds a tall piece of driftwood and with the help of a few of Newfoundland and Labrador’s most celebrated musicians (The Once, The Fortunate Ones and Matthew Hornell), it turns out that everyone gets to have a lot of fun!  Jack and his new friends set out to put a smile back on his grandmother’s face all to the delight of everyone in town. Jack and the Magnificent Ugly Stick by Joshua Goudie will be enjoyed by anyone who ever held an instrument in their hands or a song in their heart! This book is the follow-up to Jack and the Hurricane, (which was also published by Tuckamore Books) in 2014. The illustrations are the work of Craig Goudie, who is Joshua’s father.
