Genre: Graphic comic

What did you like about the book? Dog Man and Cat Kid (the clone of evil Petey – who is NOT evil) live together in Dog Man’s rather spacious doghouse. Cat Kid is a kitten so when a grandma-type cat sitter (Evil Petey in disguise) shows up, Dog Man is free to go to work. Dog Man has been selected to be the bodyguard of Yolay Caprese, the famous actress who will be starring in the new movie based on the adventures of Dog Man. Of course Dog Man’s dog instincts manage to wreak havoc as does Evil Petey and reluctant side-kick Cat Kid. Another silly, funny madcap adventure.

Anything you did not like about this book? No.

To whom would you recommend this book? Share with those who like the three earlier Dog Man books and also fans of Captain Underpants.

Who should buy this book? Public libraries and elementary school libraries

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? If you are a Dog Man/ Dav Pilkey fan, then yes.
