    Somewhat torn with this review. Read them during tutoring. The student loved them and couldn't get enough. His growing love of reading was a direct result of this series. I really didn't care for them (maybe because I am a female) but continued reading because they developed a love of reading for my 8 yr old male pupil and isn't that the reason for literature. We may not all have the same taste but we need to appreciate and respect other people's choices. Dav Pilkey is a genius. I love his play Somewhat torn with this review. Read them during tutoring.

Actually, started pointing out some of his idioms used throughout the book. Loved Dog Man's positive outlook on life in the midst of trouble. Took me at least 4 previous books to see the "good side" of reading these books.

    Sadly, this might be my least favorite Dog Man in the series. The Good: -Dog Man often has great "life lessons." There is a nice bit in here about how Petey struggled to be accepted in society after his first prison sentence and how he couldn't get a job, housing, etc. While most readers might not totally get the reflection of real life, it could be a good talking point. -The theme of everlasting love was nice. The Bad: -So much (really gross) potty humor. Pilkey is somewhat known for this and the Sadly, this might be my least favorite Dog Man in the series.

The Bad: -So much (really gross) potty humor. Pilkey is somewhat known for this and the potty humor was why some people really hated Captain Underpants. I always liked the Dog Man series better than Captain Underpants because it was still all the funniness without so much grossness but this had soooo much toilet humor. They make up diarrhea songs, characters pee themselves, etc. - Most of the other books in the series have something to do with the literature it is parodying. Maybe I missed it (it has been a long time since I read Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë ) but I didn't really see any of that incorporated into this book. But regardless of all that, my students will still devour the book and that's all that really counts I guess.

    The boys have been talking about the release of this book for over a month. The countdown was requested daily. 5 stars for hype if nothing else. And, yes, of course we read it entirely on the first day.

    DEAR GOD! I'M SORRY! I DIDN'T MEAN IT! I may have gotten mad at Dav Pilkey in the last book, BUT I TAKE IT BACK! This book was nonstop with the pee and poop jokes. Even when it tries to be mature, it gets interrupted by a poop joke. I thought I would like this book because of that, BUT NO! There's even one scene where you see cops peeing all over the place. It was so dang gross that I had to put the book down! And to be honest, if there was a dog man book where we get to read Petey's whole backs DEAR GOD! I'M SORRY! I DIDN'T MEAN IT!

And to be honest, if there was a dog man book where we get to read Petey's whole backstory, (WITH NO POOP JOKES!) I would like that.

    5 stars. All you need is love, and DogMan! Lil Petey and Molly cracked me up, their songs and antics. Giant sippy cups on a rampage, Mecha Molly, smooch-a-rama. Something for everyone, page 65 for the over 50 DogMan fans 😉

    So, as it turned out, Dog Man: Grime and Punishment was not the end of the series. This new installment includes a romantic subplot between Chief and Nurse Lady, a bit more about Petey's mother (hence the title), giant evil animated sippy cups, lots of malic acid, and some references to the first law of thermodynamics. Oh, and poop jokes. Lots of poop jokes, because apparently the series had not actually moved beyond poop humor so much as to take a brief scenic detour away from it.

Oh, and poop jokes. Lots of poop jokes, because apparently the series had not actually moved beyond poop humor so much as to take a brief scenic detour away from it. As with most of the more recent Dog Man books, the serious stuff here was quite well done, and never felt like it slowed things down or weighed things down. The bathroom humor has never been a favorite of mine, but my son (13 now) still finds it hilarious. The main source of much of this was Molly the psychokinetic tadpole, who is Lil' Petey's best friend, which seemed a bit weird because this wasn't an aspect of her character in previous appearances. I did feel like this relied a bit too much on tropes and gimmicks from previous installments, while not adding too much to the longer-term plotlines. That being said, it was still cute fun, with several really great jokes.

    Dog Man has been forced to wear the Cone of Shame, but Lil Petey can help make it more fun. Petey comes to spend time with his son as Grampa breaks out of jail. What trouble will they get into this time? I read this with my son. He loves the series, especially Lil Petey. I adore the message of friendship and love. I wasn't a huge fan of this book in the series, but it was still the same Dog Man fun we're used to. Dog Man has been forced to wear the Cone of Shame, but Lil Petey can help make it more fun.

    I read this with my 7-year-old. The franchise continues! The whole gang is back as once again Grandpa is up to no good. There’s some minor diarrhea songs, but as always, Pilkey includes positive, explicit messages. This time the message is about love. I don’t think this is the strongest in the series, but my child enjoyed it nonetheless.

    I read this for my Tween Graphic Novel Book Club. We are having our discussion at the end of January and I am very curious as to what the kids will say. Excited to talk with them about things like breaking the 4th wall, paratextual elements, foreshadowing, etc.

    I think this is my favorite of the series so far. The three poop-themed songs pushed over the edge in the best way possible.

    Best book Ever 🌍 I like the end and the middle. It’s a great book. My favorite are the fight scenes. I hope there’s more dog man books to come.

    I think this is my favorite yet. My kiddo really loves the poop jokes. Of course. But this one is cute and funny and kind of sweet at the end. Not what you'd expect from Dog Man.

    Listening to my kids read excerpts from Dog Man makes me roll my eyes. The 7 year old convinced me to read it aloud to him and I’m so glad I did. It’s been a long time since a book has made me laugh out loud. My consensus is that overhearing Dog Man is obnoxious, but immersing yourself in Dog Man is hysterical.
