What did you like about the book? In this second episode of Dog Man, a fish eats super brain food meant for the Chief of Police, Petey the cat escapes from jail by making a flattened version of himself who becomes real – and wreaks havoc, the bones of a prehistoric monster come to life, and Dog Man continues to be Dog Man, playing with balls, rolling in garbage and unable to resist a bone. The book begins by relating just how Dog Man came to be. The story moves like wildfire, is hilarious and is sure to please!

Anything you didn’t like about it? Not a thing.

To whom would you recommend this book? Give this to those who enjoyed the first Dog Man book and to fans of Captain Underpants.

Who should buy this book? Public and elementary school libraries

Where would you shelve it? Graphic novels

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes, particularly if you are a Dav Pilkey fan.
