The illustrations are fabulous. Did anyone else think the Fair Fairy looked like a cranky Danny DeVito? The new “Flip-er-ama” feature that starts at the end of chapter 3 is just a riot; complete with a full page of directions! There’s special artwork to support this feature😉
Barky McTreeface looks an awful lot like Jim Carey, right? All the characters have such great personalities, I’m seriously thinking about the previous 7 books...
Petey and Dog Man band together and forge a friendship realizing that friends and family are best when it comes to saving what means most to you.
My favorite character might be Commander Cupcake. I won’t say who I tho’t he looked like, but the glasses are a big clue! This is one safe way to get my gluten on🥰
Dav Pilkey ends the book by adding to its value - there are pages of “how to draw” the characters and a few pages of notes that inspired adults can use to spark further reading and conversation. A very worthy reading experience 📚

In Fetch-22, the characters learn that the only way to make things perfectly fair is if everybody gets nothing. Introduce goods and there will always be someone who has more. Maybe not the lesson most Americans want to hear but it is true as an aphorism.
Pilkey also teaches that while you may not be able to save the world, you can always save someone’s world. The adage from Jewish tradition, “He who saves one life saves the whole world” is exemplified.
Best of all, while your kids are enjoying the madcap antics of Dog-Man and his companions they can learn these lessons without a moralizing tone.
As for my ten year old, he says it is as good as the prior Dog-Man books. Highly recommended.
My daughter is a strong reader and enjoys all sorts of chapter books, but Dog Man holds a special place in her heart. I love how much she loves these stories.
I let him open it early—while we were waiting for his prescription to be filled. He finished it in the car in about an hour. He is in kindergarten and fell in love with Dogman on the bus to school one day, reading to another kindergartner who is not yet reading. Flipping the pages like mad and seriously crying over having to leave copies with the school, bus, or library.
I had been trying to get him to bump up to chapter books all summer, but he really was not having it because he did not want to give up illustration. He reads so well though—he needed this series. He’s devoured all of these books and as such it has been a pleasure to purchase them and watch him light up. Fostering that love for voracious reading was my goal, but it really is all Dav as to how we managed to get there.
My son is getting the few he’s missing— for Christmas. But he has already read them all a bunch of times. One of his favorite features are the “flip-o-ramas.”
My son has adhd and does not sit still for long. He can sit quietly and reread Dogman anytime. That’s literally priceless on several fronts.
I’m not too keen on some of the more ridiculous bits, but it’s not written for moms. It’s written to keep the interests of action-packed slap-stick kiddos. And it does. Fully. Sometimes there’s a lesson to glean. I don’t count on it, but it’s nice when it comes too.
There is always something new they catch when they reread these books too. Worth every penny (and more!) My son has no initial interest in Captain Underpants, but given how much he adores Dogman and loathes all of the other books we’ve tried—we may need to give Dav’s others a go.
I haven’t read this and I lose interest when my son tells me even after I ask him. Something about tadpoles and I imagine a lot like “catch 22.” I’m grateful my son has found this series.
My autistic nephew is going on 9 and has been reading this series since he was 5 or 6 too. Over and again. He actually writes a lot of his own graphic books now too—some I truly think could be published. I made sure to let his mama know this next book was out—we’re hoping to see the musical/play when it comes to town in February.
We’re kind of obsessed about Dogman and are blessed to have it in our lives. Thanks Dav!
