OVERVIEW
A buddy adventure through the forest, starring two best-pal pooches! 

Two best-friend dogs, Schnozzer (the smart one) and Tatertoes (the cheerful one), set off into the forest on a journey to visit Tatertoes’s mom. Along their adventure, they encounter bees, bears, quicksand, characters from fairy tales, something called “nose spiders,” and lots of yo-yo action.
Their adventures are told as a series of vignettes, propelled by easygoing but giggle-inducing humor. That plus Rick Stromoski’s lush, illustrative style and charming character designs make for page-turning, chuckle-filled reading.


Praise for Schnozzer & Tatertoes: Take a Hike!:
 

"Funny and lovable…this entertaining story moves along quickly and never sags. Two excellent new characters off on their first quest." —Kirkus
 

“This is a joyous, uproarious, early-reader graphic novel that has a laugh count that’s as high as the first InvestiGators graphic novel. Take A Hike! operates in that early graphic novel space that lower to upper-elementary school kids crave. It’s relentlessly silly, has chapters to provide confidence to those young ages, full-color illustrations, and effortlessly entertains readers whose minds can easily be distracted.” —Daddy Mojo
 

“Delightfully funny and totally engaging. (And Tatertoes is tops!)”—Terri Libenson, author of the Emmie & Friends series 


Take A Hike is the best buddy comedy in years. And! It stars two dogs.”—Judd Winick, author of the Hilo series 


“If you like funny, silly dogs (and who doesn’t), this book is for you!”—Patrick McDonnell, Mutts cartoonist and author of Me . . . Jane 


“Schnozzer and Tatertoes are a hoot! Adventure, friendship, AND snacks? Count me in!”—Rob Harrell, author of Wink and Batpig

PRAISE
“Rick Stromoski’s lush, illustrative style and charming character designs make for page-turning, chuckle-filled reading.” —SLJ/Teen Librarian Toolbox

"[Stromoski’s] talent is evident in the brisk pacing, exaggerated cartoon illustrations, and many jokes; this entertaining story moves along quickly and never sags. Travel is made fun with two excellent new characters off on their first quest." —Kirkus -
