Harold and George (who created the Dog Man comic strip) are back to get the reader caught up on what's happening in Dog Man's world. The Chief's birthday is coming, so the police officers decide to get him a pet fish and something called “Supa Brain Dots” to help him be less forgetful. ON the day they go to the pet store, it has been robbed ... by Petey the Cat! He's in jail, right? Nope! The cat is "out of the bag." Turns out, Petey had created Paper Petey, and now "they" are terrorizing the city.
Teen Student Reviewer (16):
I read this with my younger brother and I liked it, too. I did like this book. In comparison to the first one, it is quite refreshing. It has an actual storyline and one that is somewhat understandable. Although most of the logic was dumb and the plot is still super sporadic, the book is very enjoyable nonetheless.
This is a book that I might re-read, but not anytime soon. It is quite comical, but nothing I'd characterize as "great."
Humor and adventure, with lots of puns and word play, will have readers "barking" for more Dog Man stories.
Hinted death of a minor character (the pet fish).
Two 4th-grade boys share their fantasy adventure via a comics-style story.
This is a book to read for fun. You might highlight that the "authors" are two fourth-grade boys and ask your readers what kind of adventure they would write.

Borrow. Entertaining and fun, but not a read again.
