The pee and poo jokes are appropriate for the age range and seem to be what most people harp upon. I've never batted an eye at those in comics, T.V and media perhaps, but comics are all kinds of zany, and this one is no different. The majority of deals broken comes from page 129 I believe, as hand-on-poo contact broke many people but just fit with the idea a world without reading and books would be a dull and dumb one.

Over all this book was a nice read and very predictable, perfect for young kids. I could see how read it was from the library tatterings on flip-o-rama pages and tattered edges around Petey's scenes. Truly a fun book. Especially the parts with hot dogs and real dogs!

Highly recommend! ( )

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. ( )

This was a really cute book. I read this book with my nephew and he really seemed to like it. I feel like this series is appropriate fro advanced second graders going into the thrid grade. This book was really cute and was written in the comic book style, which is really engaging for young children and a great way to get children to read. ( )

This book is part of a series of graphic novels which were created by the same author who wrote Captain Underpants. The chapter book is filled with comedy and humor. It can also work as an attention grabber for those students who do not like the traditional chapter books and has great detailed illustrations. In this story, the dog is the main character who goes around town being a superhero. ( )

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.
