Overview

In Stick Dog Chases a Pizza, Tom Watson's hilarious follow-up to Stick Dog and Stick Dog Wants a Hot Dog, Stick Dog returns with the same crazy crew. This time these canine friends have discovered a newfangled flavor—and it's even more delicious than hamburgers and hot dogs. It's pizza! And they won't be satisfied until they get some slices of their own. But it won't be that easy. There's a kitten to rescue, a plan to make, and the messiest—and most dangerous—game of catch they've ever played. Pizza is on the menu, but only if their mission succeeds. Perfect for fans of Big Nate, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and the previous Stick Dog books.

Meet the Author

Tom Watson lives in Chicago with his wife, daughter, and son. He also has a dog, as you could probably guess. The dog is a Labrador-Newfoundland mix. Tom says he looks like a Labrador with a bad perm. He wanted to name the dog "Put Your Shirt On" (please don't ask why), but he was outvoted by his family. The dog's name is Shadow. Early in his career Tom worked in politics, including a stint as the chief speechwriter for the governor of Ohio. This experience helped him develop the unique, storytelling narrative style of the Stick Dog books. More important, Tom's time in politics made him realize a very important thing: Kids are way smarter than adults. And it's a lot more fun and rewarding to write stories for them than to write speeches for grown-ups.

My 9 yr old grandson loves these books. He can't wait to get home from school so he can continue reading them. He also shares them with the other children in the 3rd grade and they all like them.

My first reaction when I saw it was, "Oh, it's a kids book". But then I thought, what the heck? I got it and read it in one sitting. It started seeming a bit lame, but quickly changed to "the kid in me'. All the way through it, I thought I was 9 years old running with these dogs and taking part in their adventures. Inside I felt a growing need to smile and laugh and usually did after I nudged my funny bone. I became one of the dogs, hoping for successful endings to each piece of their journey. I didn't go so far as naming myself, but I imagined which one can I relate to, or which would be my best friend. Can you tell I love dogs? Then came the ending and all I could think about was who do I know that would enjoy this. I mean, who is still a kid inside like me.
