Middle Grade Monday: Dog Man Brawl of the Wild by Dav Pilkey
Dog Man Brawl of the Wild by Dav Pilkey. Dog Man series #6. 224 p. Graphix/ Scholastic Inc., December, 2018. 9781338236576. (Review from purchased finished copy.)
Dog Man is back in book #6 and he's in trouble! A trio of flea bad guys have framed Dog Man for a robbery and now he's in doggie prison where he is shunned because he's not dog enough. Never fear, his loyal friends led by Cat Kid are on the case. As usual, the humor and gags come fast and furious along with the usual flip-o-rama segments. The palette is vibrant and energetic and even Petey is becoming endearing. Thankfully, this series shows no sign of flagging. I have two copies of each installment and the shelf where they live is usually empty. Keep 'em coming!
