Book 4 Stick Dog Series

By Tom Watson

244 pages – ages 7+

Synopsis- It’s a hot summer day, the hottest of the hot, and Stick Dog and his gang are in need of something cool. But nothing they try seems to work. That is, until they find a big, odd-shaped truck that plays an annoying song comes around. The dogs don’t know what is going on, but when it leaves, there are sometimes little puddles of cool, multi-colored, yummy liquid. So, the dogs chase after the truck, always getting those puddles. But it’s not enough! They need MORE!

What I Thought- I LOVE the Stick Dog books (See my review HERE). They genuinely look like they came from a notebook The drawings are funny and capture the feelings of the dogs perfectly. Mr. Watson has a fun writing style that really sounds like it’s a kid telling the story. The only thing I didn’t like was that the book didn’t even re-introduce the characters and if kids were picking the series up with this book, it would have helped with a little more introduction. The books are an awesome read for their intended age. The silly humor is a favorite of mine and I am sure other kids feel the same. Book 4 of the series didn’t disappoint with the wacky humor and even sillier drawings.

I give this book four out of five bookworms.fourbooks

    Stick Dog is awesome! There’s a character I can wrap my brain around. We agree about ice cream. Mom shared an ice cream cone with me today. Yum!

    Love and licks,

    These looks so fun. I was told on good authority that these are (or at least started) self-published. Travis Jonker from the hugely successful 100 Scope Notes blog told me that. He is a librarian for our local school district. (Sure wish I could get a mention on his blog! I gave him a few of my books, but I hate being obnoxious.) I really need to pick Stick Dog up. I love indie success stories.

    This sounds terrific. And the art is something any kid could have drawn. I like that.

    I haven’t read a Stick Dog book yet- but I have a couple of them in my school library. Adding them to my long list of books to read. Sounds like a great series. 🙂
