Dog Man (B&N Exclusive) (Captain Underpants: Dog Man Series #1) by Dav Pilkey

New from the creator of Captain Underpants, it's Dog Man, the crime-biting canine who is part dog, part man, and ALL HERO!

George and Harold have created a new hero who digs into deception, claws after crooks, and rolls over robbers. When Greg the police dog and his cop companion are injured on the job, a life-saving surgery changes the course of history, and Dog Man is born. With the head of a dog and the body of a human, this heroic hound has a real nose for justice. But can he resist the call of the wild to answer the call of duty?

I love dog man so much and it so funny. I like superheros and cops a lot. And bad guys too. It is so good to read.

My students have not enjoyed this book. Basically, they've said it's just not that funny, and gets old fast.

This book really held my son’s interest. We read it almost every night for about 3 weeks. It’s 120 pages long, so I was pretty proud that he made it through the whole book all on his own. He enjoyed it so much that he went back and re-read portions with my husband or me to catch us up when the other of us had put him to bed the previous night. That fact alone makes this an amazing book! Dav Pilkey is well known for his Captain Underpants series, which is aimed at kids in grades 4-6 I believe. This book is geared towards a slightly younger audience. It’s written at a 2nd grade level I think. And it’s written “by” the 4th graders in Captain Underpants. The content definitely seems like 4th graders wrote it, but, thankfully, the spelling is correct in this book except for a few made-up works, like “supa” instead of “super”. The book is broken into 4 chapters. The first chapter tells of the creation of Dog Man, which is a little gruesome. Dog Man is made from a cop and a dog, Frankenstein style. The book glosses over what happened to the human consciousness when this happened, but my son (age 6) was a little disturbed. The second chapter is the beginning of Dog Man’s days as a crime fighting dog-man police officer. A sneaky cat named Petey is the agent of the evil mayor’s plan to take over the city with her Robo-Chief cop robot. It’s silly, but fun. The rest of the book continues in a similar 4th grade logic and humor kind of way. My 1st grader loved it. The second book in the series comes out in January, and we will be getting it right away. Any book that holds my son’s interest is worth buying and reading, even if it’s not what I would call classic literature.

I sent this to my young nephew who lives across the country. I recently met him and learned that he didn't particularly enjoy reading and needed to move on to chapter books. He called after getting a few from me and couldn't stop talking about DogMan! He had read 100 pages in a few days, so sounds like another hit!
