With the humor of Big Nate and Wimpy Kid comes a new middle-grade hero, this time with four legs, a wet nose, and an insatiable appetite. Along with his four dysfunctional friends, Stick Dog embarks on an epic quest to steal a hamburger. Told with hilarious illustrations and pitch-perfect humor, Stick Dog is destined to be top dog.

When Stick Dog’s quest for hamburgers turns out to be more difficult than he could have ever imagined, he challenges his friends to come up with a master plan. Their unconventional solutions range from jumping off a cliff to stealing a car. Whatever it takes, these dogs are absolutely determined to have burgers for dinner.


Tom Watson lives in Chicago, IL, with his wife, daughter, and son. He also has a dog, as you could probably guess-a Labrador-Newfoundland mix. Tom 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.
