Summary, etc.:
The Stick Dog series continues in author-illustrator Tom Watson's hilarious Stick Dog Dreams of Ice Cream. In the follow-up to Stick Dog, Stick Dog Wants a Hot Dog, and Stick Dog Chases a Pizza, Stick Dog and his pals are back, but this time the temperature is rising and they're all feeling the heat. They need cold, cold ice cream on this hot, hot day. It will take all of Stick Dog's smarts to guide his friends to a scrumptious ice cream feast. They'll battle a water-attacking machine, discover rainbow puddles, and chase the strangest, loudest truck they've ever seen. But there's a looming threat to their mission—Stick Dog gets spotted by a human. And the police are on his tail. If he's captured, Stick Dog may never see his friends again. If he escapes, it's ice cream for everyone. Perfect for fans of Big Nate, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and the previous Stick Dog books.

    Stick Dog and his stray canine companions—Karen, Mutt, Poo Poo, and Stripe—return for another adventure, this time attempting to beat the summer heat. They start off on a quest for drinking water but are soon redirected when they notice an ice cream truck and the tasty drips it leaves behind. The heist, masterminded by the ever-diplomatic leader Stick Dog, is executed with precision despite his clueless comrades. As in the earlier books, the humor derives from the dogs' naïveté, narrator asides, and comical artwork. Perfect for fans of Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid series or Lincoln Peirce's Big Nate series. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
