Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
In this delightful sequel to Stick Dog, our hero (named for the fact that he is drawn with deliberate amateurishness as a stick figure) and his four canine chums are on a quest, this time not for the perfect hamburger but for as many hot dogs as possible from Peter’s frankfurter cart (“I’m calling them “frankfurters” in this story because using “hot dog” could get a little confusing…there would be too many “dogs” everywhere”). Karen (a dachshund), Mutt (aptly named), Poo-Poo (named after his poodle breed and “not named after, you know, going to the bathroom”), and Stripes (a non-striped but spotted Dalmatian) come up with a series of preposterous plans to raid Peter’s stash of frankfurters (e.g., buying a helicopter from a helicopter store and lowering themselves down from it in turn from a rope ladder), with Stick Dog representing the patient voice of common sense (“Do any of us know how to fly a helicopter?”). Karen hides in a nearby laundry basket; the burly, bearded owner of the basket carries her inside his locked house; more preposterous plans are called for to rescue her. In the meantime, the dogs’ frankfurter-stealing rival, Phyllis the Raccoon, is drawing ever closer to Peter’s cart…. Watson’s text is relentlessly hilarious with pitch-perfect, laugh-out-loud kid humor; his stick drawings are surprisingly expressive. Readers will be hungry themselves for the forthcoming third title, when the ever-ravenous five go out in search of, yes, pizza. Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.; Ages 8 to 12.

Gr 2–4—This silly sequel follows squarely in the paw prints of Stick Dog (HarperCollins, 2013). Watson starts off explaining again why all of his dogs look alike, why none of them look very much like real dogs, and why he doesn't like writing the kinds of stories that teachers would approve of (though this bit is debatable). Then it's on to Stick Dog and his friends-Karen, Poo-Poo, Mutt, and Stripes-as they try to con a hot dog vendor into giving them the contents of his cart. The drawings are expressive, funny, and even manage to be adorable despite their simplicity. The dogs come up with and discard multiple elaborate plans to get their meal and somehow bumble their way into success after rescuing Karen from a laundry-basket mishap. There is far more discussion than action, which makes the story seem to lag, despite the zippiness of the dialogue. Nonetheless, young readers will get a kick out of the animals' thought processes and hilarious explanations. This style of story-part chapter book and part graphic novel-will be a sure hit with children. The funny, self-aware, and light style of Stick Dog will make this second installment welcome in most collections.—Kyle Lukoff, Corlears School, New York City
Kirkus Reviews
Stick Dog's back and on the hunt for a snack. Stick Dog and his buddies Mutt, Poo-Poo, Stripes and Karen fondly remember that day in Picasso Park when they got some delicious hamburgers from a family grilling out--they'd like some more, please. After a pleasant game of BARK! at Stick Dog's house (all the dogs stand around and bark at anything that moves, and barking first scores more points), Stick Dog realizes he is hungry. The rumbling in his belly causes his friends' bellies to rumble, but over the rumble they hear something else: a bell. After deciding it's not Santa, a giant cuckoo clock or miniature bell-ringing humans, they discover it is Peter and his frankfurter cart. Each pooch comes up with an outlandish plan to steal the franks, but Stick Dog finds them all flawed. When they agree to his plan, Karen complicates it by becoming trapped in a strange human's house. Will they ever get those delicious frankfurters? Though Watson's second Stick Dog romp may appear to be for reluctant or very young readers due to its ample white space and simple illustrations, its vocabulary may frustrate them at times. An expansion of Watson's self-published Stick Dog Wants a Frankfurter with new illustrations by Long, this features the same foolishness and narrative style as Stick Dog's first, eponymous outing. A silly, simple read for middle graders who love dogs, be they hot- or stick-. (Graphic/fiction hybrid. 8-12)

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.
