Description-

  • Perfect for fans of the Dog Man, Big Nate, Timmy Failure, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, Stick Dog and his friends are back, and they're hungrier than ever!

    As the dogs embark on their quest for hot dogs, they learn they're not the only ones on a mission—a band of raccoons is following close behind, and they're ravenous, too!

    In this second book in the series, Stick Dog and his four friends, Poo-Poo, Mutt, Stripes, and Karen, must execute a master plan for stealing hot dogs. The closer they get to the hot dog vendor, the more difficult their mission becomes.

    The five dogs are met with many funny challenges along the way, including having to distract the frankfurter guy and Karen getting locked in a human's house. No matter what, these dogs have their eyes—and stomachs—on the prize.

    With hilarious text and stick-figure drawings, reluctant readers will eat this one up!

    Other favorites in the series include Stick Dog Dreams of Ice Cream, Stick Dog Chases a Pizza, and many more!

About 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.

    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)

    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

    In this sequel to Stick Dog, the pooch and his goofy gang of fellow strays are hungry, so they run through a series of preposterous plans to free frankfurters from a vendor's cart. The meta-journal-style notebook pages are illustrated with simple, silly black-and-white illustrations which bring out the dogs' personalities. It's hard not to root for Stick Dog and company.
