Overview

See below for English description.

Un nouveau genre de justicier fait son entrée en ville et il est prêt à capturer les criminels, du moins aussitôt qu'il aura fini de courir après sa queue!

Nouveau personnage du créateur de Capitaine Bobette, Super Chien est un croque-criminels canin, moitié chien, moitié homme, mais COMPLÈTEMENT FLIC!

Georges et Harold ont créé un nouveau héros qui flaire les subterfuges, griffe les escrocs et se roule sur les voleurs. Super Chien est né à la suite d'une opération chirurgicale sur un policier et son chien qui a drôlement tourné. Avec sa tête de chien et son corps d'humain, cette nouvelle créature canine héroïque a un sens du devoir indéfectible... ou presque...

There's a new breed of justice in town, and he's ready to sniff out criminals -- as soon as he stops chasing his own tail!

New from the creator of Captain Underpants, it's Dog Man, the crime-biting canine who is part dog, part man, and ALL COP!

Georges and Harold have created a new hero who digs into deception, claws after crooks, and rolls over robbers. When Greg the police dog and his cop companion are injured on the job, a life-saving surgery changes the course of history, and Dog Man is born. With the head of a dog and the body of a human, this heroic hound has a real nose for justice. But can he resist the call of the wild to answer the call of duty?

About the Author

DAV PILKEY, qui est né en 1966, est un auteur reconnu et un illustrateur récipiendaire du prix Caldecott. Il a commencé à écrire des livres alors qu'il était encore au primaire et se faisait souvent punir pour ses farces. Ses professeurs n'appréciaient pas du tout ses bandes dessinées. Mais c'est en deuxième année qu'il a inventé son personnage le plus célèbre: Le Capitaine Bobette. L'un de ses professeurs lui a dit un jour : « Tu ferais mieux de commencer à prendre les choses un peu plus sérieusement, mon garçon, parce que tu ne pourras pas passer le restant de tes jours à écrire des livres farfelus. » Heureusement pour nous, il n'a pas écouté ses professeurs. En plus de créer Les aventures du Capitaine Bobette, il a écrit de nombreux autres livres aussi passionnants les uns que les autres qui ne manquent pas de dérider les jeunes moins portés sur la lecture.

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories. He spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books -- the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants.


In college, Dav met a teacher who encouraged him to illustrate and write. He won a national competition in 1986 and the prize was the publication of his first book, World War Won. He made many other books before being awarded the 1998 California Young Reader Medal for Dog Breath, which was published in 1994, and in 1997 he won the Caldecott Honor for The Paperboy.


The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby, published in 2002, was the first complete graphic novel spin-off from the Captain Underpants series and appeared at #6 on the USA Today bestseller list for all books, both adult and children's, and was also a New York Times bestseller. It was followed by The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung Fu Cavemen from the Future and Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers, both USA Today bestsellers. The unconventional style of these graphic novels is intended to encourage uninhibited creativity in kids.


His stories are semi-autobiographical and explore universal themes that celebrate friendship, tolerance, and the triumph of the good-hearted. Dav loves to kayak in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.
