William has been a part of the Stick family since the first day of school when Wrickety Stick became his best friend. He knows the secret about their unusual bones but he would never tell. The Sticks can make their bendable bones go soft and flat which means they can do amazing things like slide under doors, squeeze between cracks and float into the air. When the Sticks' dog, Smudge, is kidnapped and could be in danger, William joins in the search.
