Originally self-published as an e-book, Stick Dog has been a bestseller in the US throughout 2011 and is now published in the UK.

Synopsis

Stick Dog by Tom Watson

Meet Stick Dog - a new breed of hero! In his first adventure, Stick Dog and his friends embark on an epic quest to steal a hamburger. Stick Dog and his friends, Mutt, Stripes, Karen and Poo-Poo have caught the scent of hamburgers and what hungry stray could resist that lovely meaty waft? All they have to do is follow the smell, find the barbecue and eat the hamburgers. But it's not as easy as it sounds. The dogs need a 'Master Plan' and they're not short of ideas. They're just short of ideas that aren't ridiculous, or dangerous, or just very very silly.

About the Author

Early in his career Tom worked in politics, including a stint as the Chief Scriptwriter for the Governor of Ohio. This experience helped him develop the unique, storytelling narrative style of the Stick Dog books. Tom finds it a lot more fun and rewarding writing stories for kids rather than writing speeches for grown-ups. He lives in Chicago with his wife, daughter, son and of course, his dog.
