STICK DOG WANTS A HOT DOG reunites the five endearing pups from Stick Dog. Tom Watson follows the same formula: Hungry dogs seeking food come up with harebrained schemes to attain their goal, and Stick Dog affectionately leads them to success. The humor is a little more forced this second time around, and awkward, passive phrasing saps some of the energy. All in all, however, it's an entertaining caper enlivened by Ethan Long's stick-figure-style drawings.
