Publishers Weekly Review

Nov 19, 2012 – “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.

Aaa

Great book; same story.

I thought the book was very good, I LOVE Stick Dog and all of his friends. Although, I thought it was kind of redundant because there was already a book that you made called "Stick Dog Wants a Hamburger". Also, I love drawing and I really don't think your drawings are bad! I never would have thought to put clothes on stick people! I love Stick Dog so much, I wish you would make more books about him! Also, I love the funny parts in there, the first time I read "Stick Dog Wants a Hamburger" I was laughing my head off! My favorite part was... Well... Um... EVERYTHING!
