A simplistic-looking but profound story, with a wonderful message about human relationships.

A simplistic-looking but profound story, with a wonderful message about human relationships. In a busy world, where things are easily thrown away and replaced by new ones, it's rare to find a true friend. A friend who stands by you no matter what, a friend who shares your dreams, a friend who is there through life's ups and downs, a friend like Cyril. A heartwarming tale about a boy who finds something—something to keep forever, something which no one else has ever found . . . a Stick called Cyril. An allegory on life and death, time, friendship, and trust. A reminder that simple things may have important worth in our lives, more than we can imagine. A little stick can be transformed into a treasure for the person who is willing to appreciate its value.
