Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Stick Dog (so named for his rudimentary depiction by narrator Tom, who claims an inability to draw) and his doggy friends Poo Poo, Karen, Mutt, and Stripes are strays living in a suburban park. One day they detect a pleasant aroma (grilling hamburgers) and decide to satisfy their hunger at whatever cost. The chase that follows involves distractions (a squirrel in a tree), misunderstandings about the family that is grilling, and a series of ludicrous attack plans that surprisingly results in a tasty conclusion. Watson's humorous debut novel is reminiscent of Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid and Lincoln Peirce's Big Nate series. It features succinct text, oversize type, and frequent cartoon illustrations, all printed on what looks like notebook paper. The humor and format will attract readers, but the canine camaraderie, development of distinct characters, sprinkling of perceptive comments, and Stick Dog's quiet but effective leadership (in particular, his kind responses to his pals' ridiculous attack plans) will ensure devoted fans. Here's hoping more Stick Dog adventures are in the works.--Weisman, Kay Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""I Can't Draw, Okay?" is the name of the first chapter of this heavily illustrated reader from Watson, who's previously published two e-books starring the eponymous dog. Watson illustrated those earlier tales, but Long (Pig Has a Plan) does the "bad" drawing in this iteration, contributing exuberant stick-figure cartoons that riff on and clean up Watson's earlier designs. It's a treat to see how Long transforms two rectangles, some googly eyes, and a few lines into spot-on evocations of endearingly goofy dog behavior. Unfortunately, the new images also throw light on the book's weaknesses: overworked prose, weak characterizations, forced jokes, and a woolly narrative about five stray dogs that catch the scent of a cookout and head off in search of its source. Watson tries to be ironic and irreverent in his humor, claiming his story will be "told in a way I like (but my English teacher doesn't)" and naming one of Stick Dog's canine friends Poo-Poo (he's a poodle). But readers may quickly start flipping ahead, looking for storytelling traction or differentiation among the characters. Ages 8-12. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
