Tom Watson School Visits

Tom Watson is visiting schools on Tuesday, September 25th!

GET YOUR COPY NOW! Pre-order your signed copy of Stick Cat: Two Cats and a Baby or any of Tom Watson's books today, by ordering online below or filling out a form from your teacher or librarian.

Join Stick Cat and Edith in their fourth heroic quest in Stick Cat: Two Cats and a Baby as they save Grandma Cobb! Featuring Tom Watson’s trademark laughs, adventure, and hilarious stick-figure drawings, Stick Cat and Edith return for more high jinks in the fourth book of the Stick Cat series. They’ve already caught a thief, rescued a bagel maker, and saved a neighborhood musician—and now it’s up to Stick Cat and Edith to rescue a …baby?!  Well, not exactly. When newlyweds Goose and Tiffany leave Grandma Cobb to look after their baby, Grandma Cobb accidently locks herself in the bathroom! While a disgruntled Edith must look after the crying mini menace who disrupted her from her catnap, Stick Cat is hatching up the perfect scheme to rescue Grandma Cobb.  Whenever these two get together, it’s guaranteed to be hilariously epic!

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. 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.
