Overview


Housebroken comes with a hip attitude and sharp sense of humor that appeal to younger audiences, yet it has crossover appeal to readers of all ages who identify with the off-the-wall antics.The worlds of hip-hop and suburbia couldn't seem further apart . . . and that's just what makes Housebroken so doggone funny. Cartoonist Steve Watkins plunks down DJ Dog, his plucky ex-rap star canine, into the middle-class Watson family, and a whole lot of grumbling, growling, and cultural ""enlightenment"" takes place. Gangsta Yoga with DJ Dog is the second regular collection of Watkins's nationally syndicated strip, and this book promises the same successful combination of hilarious laughs and crossover sales as its predecessor.

DJ Dog may be a warm and fuzzy puppy at heart, but his ""ruff"" edges leave something to be desired when it comes to harmonizing with Mya, the nine-year-old daughter of the Watson family and CEO wannabe. DJ often teams up with Mya's seven-year-old brother, Malik, to oppose her get-rich schemes, which include selling Girl Scout cookie-backed securities. Whether he's teaching yoga positions, such as ""Duck from Driveby,"" or taking over the elementary school orchestra and renaming them the ""Murderers Bows,"" this hip-hop pup is bound to be funny.

Meet the Author

Steve Watkins thought practicing law was his destiny. Yet even while studying at Yale Law School, he couldn't quite shake the pull of making jokes through comic strips, as his class notes would reveal. Steve eventually passed the California bar exam and practiced law, but he always stuck with his cartooning. Housebroken, syndicated by Tribune Media Services, now appears in newspapers across the country.
