The Adventures of Dog Man: Dog Man by Dav Pilkey


The Adventures of Dog Man: Dog Man by Dav Pilkey

New from the creators of Captain Underpants, it's Dog Man, the crime-biting canine who is part dog, part man, and ALL COP! George and Harold have created a new hero who digs into deception, claws after crooks, and rolls over robbers. When Greg the police dog and his cop companion are injured on the job, a life-saving surgery changes the course of history, and Dog Man is born. With the head of a dog and the body of a human, this heroic hound has a real nose for justice. But can he resist the call of the wild to answer the call of duty? This new series from Dav Pilkey may use conventional spelling but it is still full of all the same humour and fun of George and Harold's previous graphic novels!
