I love the dog man series. I read them for fun. I got the new one for Christmas, i have all of the other ones too. I thought this book was good. And I think you should read the one before this because it would make more sense.

After riffing on Charles Dickens, John Steinbeck, and William Golding in previous Dog Man books, what would Dav Pilkey come up with for Jack London? Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild continues the story of Dog Man's neverending pursuit of justice, as well as Petey the cat's struggle with his own villainous nature. In chapter one, Chief receives a written invitation from Italian actress Yolay Caprese to the Dog Man movie premiere. Dog Man chews up the enclosed tickets before realizing their value, but Y ...more

Dav Pilkey used to make me laugh so hard I would almost wet my pants. Instead, he is removing the toilet humor- make that almost ALL the humor- from his new books. Dog Man started out funny, but then started getting more and more serious as the series went along, until finally we end up with recurring villains and NO PLOTLINE. This one in particular is an outright clone of the second book, but instead it's the FLEAS (not Flippy) masquerading as Dog Man (not Petey). The Dog Man series used to be ...more

I love the part where the dogs saved the guy and where clay model went out of the movie theater.
I liked this book because it was funny and fun to read.

Another hilarious adventure crime-story with Dogman!

My favorite nuggets of wisdom include:
*if you’re going to do something, do it well
*if you need to challenge yourself to grow

Kids and adults will enjoy this book.

I can sort of see the hype. There were some laugh out loud moments, but that was with jokes that would go over most kids heads. Some potty humor, and slapstick moments, which is appealing to 8 year old boys, I'm sure.

For the last few weeks I've been on a binge. I decided that I wanted to read some of the books that so many of the students that I work with are reading. Why? Well, because in every 3rd-5th grade classroom I'm in, more than half of the students have one or more of these books on their desk. They aren't books that I would normally choose when I read middle grade books, and I read a lot of them. So, I read The Bad Guys: Episode 1 and also The Bad Guys: Episode 2: Mission Unpluckable. Yeah okay, ki ...more

Not my favorite of the six, but the reference to The Great Gatsby made me laugh out loud.

Ever since #3, I've felt like Petey's character development always gets undone at the start of the next book. I was really pleased to see that not only was he grappling with keeping up the good behavior in this book, he did not let his darker impulses win (aside from yelling at Big Jim, which, okay, he could have handled that better, but Big Jim hugged him without asking and that's not okay either). Very excited for For Whom the Ball Rolls!

While this book does not warrant a 5th star on my own value scale, my 7 year old son loved it and I know we will be reading it many more times. The best thing about these books, for me, is that the author/illustrator has ADHD and dyslexia and he *understands* spirited kids who don't fit inside the school box.

Dog Man never disappoints! Brawl of the Wild was laugh out loud funny and had a multi-layered resolution that very neatly and hilariously brought justice to all parties (except the fleas). “Who thinks of this stuff?!!” I exclaimed, to which my 4th grader replied, “George and Harold, mom.” George and Harold are supa awesome.

Half humanoid, half canine guardian of justice and humanity in league of his unforgettably formidable allies saves the city from evil villains set out to plague it in as annoying way as fleas on your poor dog’s body. Hooray for Dog Man, our unlikely but likable hero that deserves of our heartfelt hoot and hollow. To contradict the usual glorification of hero-worshiping façade, Dog Man is none of your familiar super heroes in Marvel Comic Strips, nor is he like Batman, Superman, or even Iron man ...more

The Dog Man books are a fan favorite among my 4th grade students. They fly off the bookshelves and students are always sharing and talking about them so I decided I needed to finally figure out what all of the hype was about it. They are definitely great books for struggling readers and they have ample picture supports, but are also relatively long so students feel as if they are reading big chapter books like some of their peers. After reading this particular Dog Man book I understood why so ma ...more

I enjoyed the previous Dog Man adventure, so I bought the latest one and I REALLY LOVE IT.

Previously, we all know that Petey has changed from an evil antagonist to a honest-to-goodness character with a kind trait, just because of Li'l Petey. He's my role model who changed my life.

In Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild, Dog Man was sent to Dog Jail because he didn't made a punishment. He knew that he's a misfit because he belongs to both worlds. On the other side, Petey's starting to become a good person

Out of all of the Dog Man books, this is my favorite. In the beginning, Dav Pilkey really made the Dog Man books simple and unappreciated. These books for me included the first and the second, but by the third book (A Tale of Two Kitties) the story got more and more complex, including their jokes, with the occasional joke about stupidity and pooping etc. but this book really showed a lot of Dav Pilkey's best work and I was really happy with that. Because he really made me enjoy this book, I gave ...more

Dog Man has been framed! And he's sent packing to dog jail!

While his friends band together to solve the mystery of who really committed the crimes that Dog Man is accused of, Dog Man must battle against his own self-doubt as he wonders if he might really be a misfit, even in dog jail.

This took a little bit to get going, but the final climactic battle was loads of fun, and it was nice to see pretty much every member of the supporting cast get their moments in the spotlight.

I knew there was a new book coming out, but I thought it was going to be released in January. The other day I saw this was coming out today, so I ordered it on Amazon. It arrived today in the middle of our Christmas Ever party.

Everyone cleared out, and I knocked this out. This one didn't really hit me well. Not that these books are feats of literary marvels, but this one seemed particularly hollow. Dog Man is arrested for a robbery that he did not commit. Pete tried to be evil, but it didn't tak

People often ask us, "Sirs, do you ever miss those childhood days of laughter and merriment?"

Alas, while we look back fondly upon our callow youths...we know we can never return. For we are too deep. And too mature.

So true, so true!!!

As a very wise man once said..."Enlightenment is not merely volition...but duty!"



You said "but doodie!"

Ah Dav Pilkey, how Miss 4 adores you! We will definitely be adding the Dog Man collection to our Captain Underpants collection for re-reading. I even learned a new word this inning, 'flagitious'.

Miss 4 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors.
