Overview


“Dogzilla rises from a volcano to break up the First Annual Mousopolis Barbecue Cook-Off, and scatter the Big Cheese’s troops with her fearsome doggy breath--but the threat of a bath sends her scurrying back to her mountain. Illustrations are painted in bright acrylics around cleverly trimmed and placed photographs of Pilkey’s pet mice, cat, and corgi, for a wonderfully silly look, appropriately accompanied by a pun-laden text.”--School Library Journal

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
From the creator of Captain Underpants comes the hilarious Dogzilla and Kat Kong by Dav Pilkey, first published in 1993 and featuring a wacky mix of animal photos, art and a deadpan Sam Spade-style narrative. The first title begins, "It was summertime in the city of Mousopolis," as the dreadful Dogzilla terrorizes the mice with her horrible dog breath. In the second, Doctor Varmint and Rosie Rodent capture the mighty Kat Kong and bring him to Mousopolis, where he breaks free and tears through the streets. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher

Praise for Dogzilla and Kat Kong:
"These two brazenly funny picture books spoof Godzilla and King Kong as they launch the mice inhabitants of Mousopolis against, respectively, a killer cat and dog. . . . Pilkey's irreverent exuberance is irresistible."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
