#Review of Stick Cat: A Tail of Two Kitties by Tom Watson

 
 
A brand-new series from Tom Watson, featuring Stick Cat!

There’s a new pet in town.

Stick Cat.

It’s a big day in the big city for Stick Cat and his best friend, Edith. There are treasures to hunt, songs to sing, pigeons to catch, and naps to take. But way up on the twenty-third floor, danger lurks just around the corner. Terrible noises and violent crashes trap a desperate man in the building across the alley. Stick Cat will need to navigate his way across the alley—and around Edith’s peculiar ways—to attempt a rescue.

With Tom Watson’s trademark combination of laughs and adventure, Stick Cat’s high-wire act is sure to please cat lovers and Stick Dog fans everywhere.





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.





Adorbes over load!! You think you love Stick Dog?  Well he needs to move over and make way for Stick Cat!! We really hope this author makes more stick animal stories because these things are so cute!!  As soon as this came in the mail the 5 year old took it and won't get it up.  We've been reading it at night before bed and she is so addicted.  She is starting her own Stick Cat adventure (well share soon)  These books give the kids the great feeling that even though they may not be the best artists they can still make art!!  It def. made my 5 year old feel better about making stick figures etc.

The stories are so engrossing we found ourselves reading way past the 2 chapters we had planned on reading.  These are so fun and colorful and we love that they are written like in a composition book. It just brings more cuteness to the story.

If you have kids both boys and girls who love cute stories, drawings, and animals then check these out!


Stay tuned to our Youtube channel for Anarece's Couch show she will be featuring this book next.
