#1 best-selling reggae artist Stick Figure (Scott Woodruff) and #1 New York Times best-selling author Adam Mansbach team up for a sweet, funny children's picture book about a real-life rescue dog turned worldwide icon

Cocoa the Tour Dog is the saga of an Australian shepherd who meets her soul mate: a struggling musician, Scott, with dreams of spreading love on stages across the globe. When Scott's work starts to pay off, Cocoa wanders onstage herself and finds sudden fame—and the two of them embark on an adventure that takes them around the world playing music, delighting fans, and ignoring leash laws.

But as the pace of life quickens, Cocoa begins to feel worn out—she misses the simpler times, and she's no longer seeing the world with puppy eyes. Luckily, Scott has just the thing to restore Cocoa's sense of wonder: a little sister dog. The two of them set off on an adventure to add Molly to the family, and soon Cocoa is teaching the puppy all about life on the road . . . and even how to take it to the stage.

About the Author

STICK FIGURE, a band with a distinctive sound developed through tireless attention to musicality and artistry, has redefined American reggae music with its latest album, Wisdom, released in September 2022. As with the band’s previous releases, Wisdom was written, produced, and recorded by Scott Woodruff, a self-taught musician. Wisdom is the band’s seventh album and follows the unprecedented success of 2019’s World on Fire, which peaked at #34 on the Billboard Top 200, as well as landing at #1 on both the independent and reggae album charts. World on Fire has sold over 400,000 copies and the band’s full catalog has sold well over one million copies and been streamed over four billion times.
