I don't think this book borrowed very much from Catch-22, which is bad news for my Dog Man book club.

Anyway, the book is great. Petey's character development continues! Flippy gets a redemption arc! Great depiction of positive co-parenting! There's so much to love in this entire series, and I wish more of my library's parent population would pay attention while reading it with their kids rather than just dismissing Dog Man as crass and boorish. Dog Man's readers came for the poop jokes and

Love all the literary allusions and the theme of the courage it takes to stand alone against evil. Another one for the win, Dav.

Dog Man: Fetch-22, was a simple enough, mostly entertaining, likeable story, and holds up as a fairly good Dog Man book. However it does not measure up to the scale of many of its predecessors.

Now with the Dog Man series hitting its eighth book, it's far enough into the series where repetition begins to occur, and lack of creativity may cost the author. Despite it being just about as entertaining as a many few prior to it, the way it was crafted, and at some points executed, brings the book down
Master Reader
This is my favorite Dog Man book. I got it for Christmas this year. It’s about the return of Flippy the fish. I love Barky McTreeface the tree monster.
It is a story of a doggy and 22 tadpoles. Fetch 22 is a blast! Hope you like it Dude!
Woof Woof!

Another cute installment of the Dog Man series.
My favorite part was finding out at the end of the book that the Barky McTreeFace song could be sung to the tune of "Frosty The Snowman" so, of course, I had to go back and sing it (out loud--I'm just glad I was the only one in the living room at the time), and there were added verses in the back of the book which I also sang out loud.
I'm just a child at heart.
Anyway, my students will enjoy this book as they have all the others.

Ok, Dog Man, I'm all in now... with the redemption arc of Petey and Flippy and the introduction of Molly the upstander tadpole. Bring on Dog Man #9!

It is a very adventurous book because you never know what will happen to the supa buddies a crime-fighting team that accomplishes their goals and catches the theft every time they have to. If there is a crime you bet ya! the supa buddies will be there to help.

Kids love them...I was going to give it a 2, but 2/3 of the way through, the message appeared. I'm an INTJ, so books like this set my mind to asking questions like, "why can the cats in this book talk, but not dogs?" Also, I'm curious as to the reception of the robot cat's name (80 HD).

This book was okay, but spelling mistakes were put in this book on purpose and it is really annoying.

Yes I am a child who has to read the newest dog man as soon as it comes out...
I love this series. Such positive messages that are delivered in ways that are not preachy. It’s no wonder students devour these books. This one wasn’t quite as good as the last one (For Whom The Ball Rolls) but it was still pretty great! I love the Barky McTreeface song (that I figured out was Frosty pretty quick). There are just so many little inside jokes/puns/ wonderful ness in the Dog Man books. I really think
