Spice it Up with Stick Dog!

On Friday, February 8th, Kids Ink gets to host Tom Watson from 4:30-6pm on tour for his latest book: Stick Dog Gets the Tacos! It is about tacos, and the stick dog that wants them.
Tom Watson & Dog
Tom is a native Midwesterner, living with his family in Chicago. While his first jobs out of college were in politics, including speechwriting, he would always be making picture books for his own kids. At one point his wife encouraged him to share these books with other readers as free material, and his writing career began. These early works are still available for free online, most easily through his web site,

The "Stick Dog" series is Tom’s most popular work, with "Stick Cat" a close second. Tom swears he won’t make any other stick animal series – cats and dogs are plenty. Tom Watson does his own writing and the initial illustrations, while Ethan Long finishes the illustration process for publication. The series follows the amusing adventures of a pooch with personality and the friends that stick with him through all the trouble he gets into.

Tom Watson’s signing at Kids Ink follows a series of visits to local elementary schools - Tom’s favorite audience. For more information on the signing itself, please call our store at (317) 255-2598.
