My 8 year old love this book. Not sure I get it - "Dogman". Is he a dog or a man? How did the chap who wrote this and Captain Underpants come up with such an inspiring list of characters? Excuse me while I plug my new series of kids book comprising of "Shed Boy" - who fights crime from his garden shed fashioning woodwork... or "Snood Boy" - who fights crime and adopts an alter ego using his snood...
Who cares... My kids likes it and its part of his approved reading list...
My son absolutely loves these books. He's always been a very reluctant reader but he always wants to read these books. His reading has come on fantastic since we started reading these books. Plenty of pictures and fliporamas for them to interact with. Light humour helps keep them interested.
My daughter who is seven has fallen in love with these books! It’s a great way for kids to become independent readers as the balance of text and images is perfect. It’s essentially a good comic with fun (and a bit weird) storylines. When we do reading at bedtime of ‘proper’ books, she then picks this one up to tears in bed herself afterwards which we love to see.
My seven year old got this and the remaining Dog Man books for his birthday. He takes them to school and reads them in bed. I know tastes are idiosyncratic often, but these are wittily written, with not too many inexplicable concepts for young children and not too many Americanisms (unlike, for instance, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which my other son liked, but which we were constantly having to translate).
Please stop writing these books at such a prolific rate as my two boys are constantly asking for 'the next book' in the series (Dog Man, Captain Underpants, whatever comes next), and our bookshelves are groaning under the weight of these tomes of hilarity.
Seriously though, we love your books and thanks for the laughs. My 7 year old read this in about an hour - but I know he (we) will re-read again and again.
This is an immediately engaging series of books. As an adult I love the titles and my granddaughter just loves the books, starting to read immediately. The graphic style is perfect for reluctant readers. The cartoon flip pages are a bonus too!
Got the first four books in the series at Christmas for one of my grandson who does not do books. Though in a simple comic book style it does use a good vocabulary. His dad has now confirmed that he has actually read them and would not mind some more for his birthday. Not quite War and Peace but a start.
Dog Man is a real surprise. Crazy premise, lots of potty humour but also really lovely and thoughtful storylines. My son is struggling to read after so much disruption with school and was adamant that he was never going to learn but since we’ve discovered Dog Man he’s excited about story time and is so willing to try and read the words himself. I love the drawing tutorials at the back which is helping with his fine motor skills too as well as concentration (and it’s super fun to do).
Dog man is my 7 year olds favourite book at the moment. I’m not too happy about all the low brow , toilet humour but it’s the only book series he reads multiple times a day. Note this is more of a comic book format then a chapter book.
