I absolutely love this book! This is the first graphic novel that I have read and found it to be a truly fun read. Being an avid animal lover, I was immediately drawn to the character of Dog Man. The idea of a dog patrolling the city and keeping it safe warms my heart and makes me smile.
I also love how the book contains more than just one story. Each chapter offers a new Dog Man adventure. My favorite was Weenie Wars. I can totally see my dogs participating in this epic battle.
Pilkey's illustrations are hilarious. I found myself laughing throughout the entire book. The language used is very entertaining. I love how he uses the word "supa." This is definitely a fun story to read aloud. The "notes" from Harold's teacher are beyond amusing. My mother was an elementary teacher and I can totally relate to Harold's relationship with Ms. Construde.
This is a wonderful read for children ages 8-12. I cannot wait to read more of Dog Man's adventures.
