George and Harold have created a new breed of justice -- one that is part dog, part man, and ALL HERO! With the head of a dog and the body of a human, this heroic hound digs into deception, claws after crooks, rolls over robbers, and scampers after squirrels. Will he be able to resist the call of the wild to answer the call of duty?

Dav Pilkey's wildly popular Dog Man series appeals to readers of all ages and explores universally positive themes, including empathy, kindness, persistence, and the importance of being true to one's self.

About the Author

As a child, Dav Pilkey was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hall every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories, so he spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books. In the second grade, Dav Pilkey created a comic book about a superhero named Captain Underpants. His teacher ripped it up and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books. Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener. Dav has gone on to create award-winning and bestselling books for children. His Captain Underpants series has more than 80 million copies in print worldwide and has been translated into more than 28 languages. In 2017, DreamWorks Animation brought the character to the silver screen in the feature film adaptation Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, and Netflix is now streaming The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants TV show. Dav’s latest creation, Dog Man, continues to be a #1 New York Times bestselling series with more than 23 million copies in print worldwide and translations available in more than 32 languages. Dav is also the creator of the Dragon series, the Dumb Bunnies series, Dog Breath, and The Paperboy, which is a Caldecott Honor Book. Dav lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.

I love dog man so much and it so funny. I like superheros and cops a lot. And bad guys too. It is so good to read.

My students have not enjoyed this book. Basically, they've said it's just not that funny, and gets old fast.

This book really held my son’s interest. We read it almost every night for about 3 weeks. It’s 120 pages long, so I was pretty proud that he made it through the whole book all on his own. He enjoyed it so much that he went back and re-read portions with my husband or me to catch us up when the other of us had put him to bed the previous night. That fact alone makes this an amazing book! Dav Pilkey is well known for his Captain Underpants series, which is aimed at kids in grades 4-6 I believe. This book is geared towards a slightly younger audience. It’s written at a 2nd grade level I think. And it’s written “by” the 4th graders in Captain Underpants. The content definitely seems like 4th graders wrote it, but, thankfully, the spelling is correct in this book except for a few made-up works, like “supa” instead of “super”. The book is broken into 4 chapters. The first chapter tells of the creation of Dog Man, which is a little gruesome. Dog Man is made from a cop and a dog, Frankenstein style. The book glosses over what happened to the human consciousness when this happened, but my son (age 6) was a little disturbed. The second chapter is the beginning of Dog Man’s days as a crime fighting dog-man police officer. A sneaky cat named Petey is the agent of the evil mayor’s plan to take over the city with her Robo-Chief cop robot. It’s silly, but fun. The rest of the book continues in a similar 4th grade logic and humor kind of way. My 1st grader loved it. The second book in the series comes out in January, and we will be getting it right away. Any book that holds my son’s interest is worth buying and reading, even if it’s not what I would call classic literature.

I sent this to my young nephew who lives across the country. I recently met him and learned that he didn't particularly enjoy reading and needed to move on to chapter books. He called after getting a few from me and couldn't stop talking about DogMan! He had read 100 pages in a few days, so sounds like another hit!
