Dog Man was created when a surgery went wrong and created this part dog and part man creature. Dog Man now fights crime as a police in the city. This book is great for silent reading time in the classroom. The kid- humor jokes keep the readers engaged and longing to continue reading. ( )

DOG MAN is a new series of graphic novels for children by Dav Pilkey featuring a dog-headed police officer.

Like Captain Underpants who was created by George and Harold, Dog Man is an unusual superhero made by a pair of friends. In the first book, this “crime-biting canine” is created when a police officer and his police dog are combined to save both lives. The resulting new superhero has some quirks, but he quickly gets to work capturing criminals like Petey the Cat and other evil doers. Two additional books including Unleashed and A Tale of Two Kittens explore stories featuring evil Petey the Cat. The latest addition to the series introduces Dog Man’s new sidekick Cat Kid. Together they become an effective crime fighting team.

Librarians will find a huge following for this hilarious new series. With endless jokes focusing on the relationship between dogs and cats, this new series will appeal to pet lovers along with fans of Captain Underpants.

It takes a lot of talent to make a silly, fun kids story that truly encourages reading (and in later stories will encourage kids to read classical literature). ( )

Fun, graphic novel about a part dog, part human hero who fights crime. The cartoon illustrations make this a VERY popular book in my classroom library. ( )

This graphic novel tells the story of a surgery that ends up in a creature that is part human, part dog that becomes a police man who fights crime. Children would enjoy reading this book because of the humor it provides as well as the high level of fantasy that engages imagination. This is a book for higher grade levels such as third - fifth because of the dialogue and context. This would be a good book for silent reading time, because it is a book for entertainment and will keep children engaged in reading. ( )
