I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Big Sis and Lil Sis both have a few book series that they each love and can't wait to get their hands on the next one in the series. For Big Sis two of those series are Stick Cat and Stick Dog. I will admit that even I read each one as they come out! The titles come from the fact a young boy in class is writing out these stories and it includes "stick figures" in the margins for illustrations. The books are fun and have characters that anyone will fall in love with. Absolutely perfect for middle grade readers ages 8 to 12.
Much to Edith's delight, she and Stick Cat are enjoying a lazy day at his apartment. But not for long. Soon, strange and threatening sounds come from the ceiling. What could it be? An elephant? Santa?
It's a man?a masked man!
Stick Cat suspects the man is up to no good, while Edith only hopes the man has snacks. When treasures are stolen from their homes, Stick Cat must come up with a plan to stop the burglar. There's a thief on the loose. He is big, determined, and sneaky. Will Stick Cat convince a hungry Edith to help him catch the thief?
Stick Dog and the gang are on their usual hunt for food, but there is something unusual going on. Little humans are dressed up as creepy witches and spooky ghosts, all carrying big orange buckets!
Their search leads them to something unexpected and delicious and sweet?candy! Once they get a taste, they will stop at nothing to get more. The gang will have to avoid terrifying witches and even escape a creepy haunted house! Will Stick Dog's smarts, courage, and patience be enough to lead his buddies to the best treats ever?
Witches, and ghosts, and goblins...and Stick Dog and friends! Oh my!
Each page is printed on lined paper to make it feel just like a kid is writing the story down in his school notebook. The cats and dogs in the stories are so gosh darn likeable! Stick Dog Volume 7 is perfect for October. Stick Dog and his pack are on the hunt for food again but things are extra strange since it is Halloween night! It is always fun to see the different personalities among the cats and dogs depending on which book you read. These fun books would even be great for reluctant readers. Big Sis has happily placed these on her book shelf that holds her favorite books.
