Gr 1–4—Readers who enjoyed Dog Man will be pleased to see Pilkey deliver the same blend of over-the-top plot turns and hilariously irreverent humor. This time, the title character (the result of medical surgery that fused a canine and a policeman after an accident) is tasked with buying his boss, the police chief, a birthday present. When the pet he purchases turns out to be an evil fish, wacky high jinks ensue. And there's more trouble on the horizon. Angry that a mysterious stranger is framing him for robbery, Dog Man's nemesis, Petey the cat, escapes from prison to clear his name. Meanwhile, the decoy that Petey uses to make his getaway, a flat paper cat, comes to life. Once again, Dog Man must put things right, relying on his keen ability to fight crime while also attempting to stifle some of his canine urges. Pilkey uses the premise that the comic has been penned by George and Harold, two elementary school students, and the artwork and story are delightfully childlike. The illustrations have been rendered with a thick-lined scrawl and simple shapes, and intentional misspellings and errors are sprinkled throughout. While the sentence structure is simple and concise, Pilkey displays a sense of sophistication, including clever puns and wordplay, as well as a clear mastery of sequential art, making this an ideal option for both reluctant and more advanced readers. VERDICT An entertainingly zany addition to graphic novel collections; for series fans and newcomers alike.—Mahnaz Dar, School Library Journal

The book Dogman Unleashed by Dav Pilkey is a fantasy story that is about two kids who made a comic called Dogman. The conflict of the story is that a Cop gives Chief a can of smart food and then he drops it all in the fishbowl and it made the fish into something unexpected and that made more problems for Dogman because his enemy Petey escaped jail. The theme of the story is to never lose hope when you want to give up. In the Dogman, Paper Petey took Dogman and his friends to the mountains and let them freeze , so Dogman thought he won but paper does not freeze. Then Dogman licked Paper Petey and he froze because paper freezes when it's wet. I would recommend this book to the other 5th graders . One reason why i recommend this book is because some people in dogman are dumb but that's what makes the story funny because a story has to be serious and funny . Another reason why recommend this book is because i has good plot twists like two mysteries at a time.A third reason why i recommend this book is that it has one story and keeps me on track on what’s happening
