Dog Man: A Tale of Two Kittens
Dog Man is half cop, half canine. Despite a good heart and good intentions, his impulsiveness constantly gets him in trouble. Throw a megalomaniac cat with a clone machine into the mix, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Petey the cat’s plans are scuppered when he ends up with a mini-me to care for. Unfortunately for Petey, the kitten turns out to be sweet-natured, in complete contrast to his own wretched soul. But everyone must put their differences aside and unite to defeat Flippy, the menacing robotic fish who is back from the dead with a vengeance. Will Dog Man be able to save the day?
Fans of this series will be delighted to see the return of the fast-paced high jinks in this graphic novel. In Pilkey’s explosion of creativity, readers will be outraged by the evil characters, laugh out loud at the slapstick humour and be moved as new unexpected friendships are formed. With limited text on each page, a compelling storyline and even interactive flip pages, this might even be the title to get reluctant readers hooked on books.
