Tom Watson is coming to KCH
on Thursday, January 18th!
He is the author of the Stick Dog & Stick Cat Series. He lives with his wife, daughter and son in Chicago, Illinois. He also has a big Labrador dog named Shadow. He first began writing political speeches and soon decided kids were so much smarter than adults and started to write children’s books. His very popular Stick Dog books are about 5 stray dogs and their hilarious misadventures in their quest for food. Each dog has their own quirky personality, which makes for a very funny and entertaining story. He also has a brand-new series called Stick Cat, which is a tale of two kitties, Stick Cat and Edith, who live in the big city on the 23rd floor of an apartment building. They spend their days coming up with harebrained schemes always trying to save the day. Tom draws all the original sketches for his books and then hands them off to his illustrator Ethan Long to clean them up and draw the final pictures for all of his books.
