Dog Man is sent to the pet store to get a fish for the chief's birthday, but the pet store owners are so annoyed at his antics that they give him an evil fish. This fish eventually gets some of the brain boosting pills that the chief is also given. Meanwhile, Petey managed to escape and cause havoc, leaving Dog Man with a battle to be fought on two fronts. Will he be able to use his skills to save the world?
Good Points
How can you not like a book that has evil fish, a protagonist who licks people's faces, Flip-o-Ramaand general goofiness? Dog Man is in comic book format rather than the text with pictures arrangement of Captain Underpants, which makes it even more appealing.

While I was a bit disturbed about Dog Man's genesis (both a police man and a dog are so badly injured that doctors have to cobble the two together), my students don't seem to care much about this. It's funny to see a person acting like a dog and vice versa. It did occur to me that people will probably be gravely offended by the picture of Dog Man sniffing a poodle's butt in the pet store and accuse Pilkey of harassment. Nota Bene: None of these people will be eight years old.

This series has the same level of goofy adventure that Captain Underpants has, and Dog Man is as headstrong as George and Harold. Pilkey never really needs any recommendation-- his books just fly off the shelf, and Dog Man will be no exception.
