My Grandson wanted this book! He was so excited, he read the entire book in one evening and he's only 9 years old.

With the body of a man...
With the body of a man and the head of a dog, Dog Man is like no other police officer you've ever seen! He manages to save the day many times despite -- or perhaps because of -- his unusual abilities and interests, like licking bones and playing with squeaky balls. This is especially important with multiple villains in this title, including series regular Petey the cat, a flat version of Petey, and an impostor Petey all running around committing crimes. I picked this book up because all children seem to love the series so much and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It is as described in the book itself "just a bunch of mindless action and dumb luck!" However, all that adventure and humor is just the sort of thing that kids need sometimes. I must admit to getting quite a few chuckles out of this book as I read it. Pilkey's "flip o rama" action pages are peppered throughout, along with "how to draw" backmatter, which are an added appeal.
If you read and liked ...
If you read and liked Dog Man #1 then you'll love #2. This is more of the same about the adventures of the half man-half dog cop. Two criminals are on the scene this time: a fish that gets an overdose of brain pills and Petey the evil cat. Aimed at about the 7-9 age range this series would be good pre-Captain Underpants. Following the same footsteps as the Underpants books Dog Man Unleashed has a formulaic pattern, flip-o-ramas and little kid bad grammar. I like Captain Underpants better but still, think this is a fun graphic novel series.
