Grime and Punishment doesn’t disappoint. It’s largely the story that hurt, hate and resentment about the past tend to imprison the victim not the perpetrator. Instead of being able to create your own narrative you’re trapped in another, malicious person’s story.
Of course, something similar is realized by Raskolnikov in Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment. Only forgiveness and a loving response allow us to move on and live freely.
It may not be the most original message, but this is a book for young children who are hearing these ideas for the first time. Pilkey shows real artistry in crafting such themes around silly stories.
You will find yourself enjoying the story while reading to or alongside your kids. Highly recommended to parents of young children.

The Dogman books have done so many good things for my child who HATED reading! Number one, she’d rather read than watch TV or play video games! Number two, she has started wanting to read the classic works that the Dogman books are based off of. We just finished Call of the Wild, which Brawl of the Wild is based on. And third, she is using very difficult and advanced vocabulary words that she learned from the Dogman books! For children who otherwise don’t like reading, I cannot recommend the Dogman series enough!
