About the Author
When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories. He spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books -- the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants.
In college, Dav met a teacher who encouraged him to illustrate and write. He won a national competition in 1986 and the prize was the publication of his first book, World War Won. He made many other books before being awarded the 1998 California Young Reader Medal for Dog Breath, which was published in 1994, and in 1997 he won the Caldecott Honor for The Paperboy.
The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby, published in 2002, was the first complete graphic novel spin-off from the Captain Underpants series and appeared at #6 on the USA Today bestseller list for all books, both adult and children's, and was also a New York Times bestseller. It was followed by The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung Fu Cavemen from the Future and Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers, both USA Today bestsellers. The unconventional style of these graphic novels is intended to encourage uninhibited creativity in kids.
His stories are semi-autobiographical and explore universal themes that celebrate friendship, tolerance, and the triumph of the good-hearted. Dav loves to kayak in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.

For how much our kids love these books and enjoy reading them, I love them. It's a battle to get their attention away from the lure of screens and their noses into books - but the dog man series has worked minor miracles for us in that regard.
Highly recommended :)
This is a nice, much scaled down & funny version of those action movies where the whole police department is against a good cop.
This is a must buy if your kids already own all the other books in the Dogman series. If you are new to this than start off with the first book which is called "Dog Man". The story is about a Policeman & his K9 merged together after an accident resulting in dog's head on a policeman's body.
The stories are becoming less-interesting by every book.
8-year old thinks so!
I think printing a single comic book in hardcover is a waste of resources just to charge extra money.
Bad practice, should stop!

Nice hard back book, with comic strip type stories.
I don’t mind that it’s in comic book format, just as long as he’s enjoying reading.
Amazing yet again, just waiting for the next one
