    I read this book because Logan (8 year old son) likes this series and I am reviewing it for Kiss the Book blog. I realize that as a 38 year old woman I'm not the intended target. The English teacher in me is appalled that these books are published and handed to children as reading material. Just a sample from the book, "If you like action, suspense, romance (a dog sniffing another dog's backside) and laffs (that is the spelling used!) then Dog Man is Go!" The characters talk to each other: "'Dog I read this book because Logan (8 year old son) likes this series and I am reviewing it for Kiss the Book blog.

I understand the need for books for struggling readers and the story line is actually creative but can we maintain some semblance of literature. Reviewed on Kiss the Book

    I think I mentioned this in my last Dog Man review, that while I read this book ,out loud, to my kids, I can't help but tell you, I read it out loud in a really bad Boston accent. This one was okay. I like the humor Dav Pilkey comes up with, but this spin-off seems harder to get into than the dynamic duo George and Harold. With that being said...I think Petey the Cat is a fun villain to have in all the books.

Almost like the cartoons that came before him for example, Plankton from Sponge Bob, always trying to get the secret formula for Crabby Patties. I will continue to read these books out loud to my children and hopefully one jumps out as being better than the previous ones. So far it's not really funny or action packed.

    Whereas Dog Man was a sequence of episodes presented as long chapters, Dog Man Unleashed is one adventure divided into short chapters, and the change works well enough. The police chief has good reason to be proud of his heroic half-man/half-canine cop, but he struggles not to lose his temper with him. What kind of policeman chews up sensitive documents, licks the chief's face because he's happy to see him, or uses the office floor as a bathroom? Dog Man has a lot of unintended mischief to make Whereas Dog Man was a sequence of episodes presented as long chapters, Dog Man Unleashed is one adventure divided into short chapters, and the change works well enough. The police chief has good reason to be proud of his heroic half-man/half-canine cop, but he struggles not to lose his temper with him. What kind of policeman chews up sensitive documents, licks the chief's face because he's happy to see him, or uses the office floor as a bathroom? Dog Man has a lot of unintended mischief to make up for as Chief's birthday approaches and the police staff decide to throw a party. Dog Man is dispatched to buy a pet as Chief's gift, but unwittingly gets stuck with an evil fish the store wanted to be rid of. Flippy, as Chief names the fish, will play a role in this story. When a mysterious stranger robs the pet store, the evidence strongly suggests Petey the cat is up to his old tricks. Sure, he's in jail, but a nefarious trickster like him can't be ruled out as the prime suspect. Incensed at being accused of a crime he didn't participate in, Petey hatches a plan to escape jail and confront the real villain. He colors a life-size paper cutout of himself and then fools the guard into believing Petey has been squashed flat. The frantic guard has paper Petey rushed to a hospital...at least, he's supposed to end up at the hospital. Instead he's brought to witch doctor Boog E. Feeva, who administers a dose of Living Spray that brings the paper cat to life. Swiftly dealing with the guards sent to monitor him, Flat Petey uses Obey Spray to bend Boog E. Feeva to his will. But where are the real Petey and the unidentified individual who robbed the pet store? Using his "Love ray" invention, real Petey sways the townspeople to his side. He commandeers a military tank and cruises the streets on a treasure hunt, but once again he's underestimated Dog Man's knack for subduing criminals by following his canine instinct. What dog can resist playing with a ball, even if it's the control lever for a tank? Thrown from his perch, Petey flees the crowd of people hypnotized to love him and takes refuge back in his jail cell. Petey is no longer a problem, but what about Flat Petey and the mystery criminal? Flat Petey conjures up a dangerous creature to fight the cops, but Dog Man is uniquely equipped to neutralize it. The pet store robber is finally unmasked and reveals their surprising story, and Dog Man and Chief pursue Flat Petey to a snowy mountaintop, where the final confrontation ensues. Can Dog Man pull off a miracle finish to apprehend Flat Petey and the mysterious pet store robber? Officer Knight and his dog became an excellent policeman once Knight's body and the dog's head were joined together. Dog Man is as afraid as anyone when Petey and other villains bring monsters to life, but he never fails to defeat them when he stops worrying and acts on his canine instincts. His urge to play with every ball he sees bails the police out of two major crises in this book, and that's ample reason for Chief to overlook the exasperating things Dog Man does and recognize he's the best cop on the force. We might all have better success if we stopped overthinking and relied more on instinct. The humor in Dog Man Unleashed is about as good as that of Dog Man, which is to say very funny, though this book's plot is more confusing. It's hard to keep track of Petey, Flat Petey, and the mysterious stranger all wreaking havoc simultaneously. This is a fun story, though, and I'll read the next one. Look out, world, for Dog Man: A Tale of Two Kitties.

    2.5 stars. My son bought this with his Christmas gift card last night, so I picked it up. It's not my thing, but I do love the illustrations and, as a teacher, I appreciate Pilkey for what he does for young readers, especially reluctant males. 2.5 stars.

    An evil fish, a flat cat, and reanimated dinosaur bones highlight this Dog Man adventure. I giggled, and snorted, and had no complaints about this fun-filled, funny go-round.

    Silliness abounds when Dog Man Unleashed comes to life. Humor full of potty jokes, doggy puns, and stupidness, kids will giggle non-stop. Arch enemies, Dog Man and Petey the Cat try to outwit each other with the help of some devious characters. A quick read, this sequential art book is full of laugh-out-loud situations and colorful hijicks. Kids will be screaming for this second in the series.

    Dog Man is back in this to save the town from the villainous Petey the cat. Petey the cat creates trouble but he also has someone else creating trouble whilst impersonating him. I liked this better than the first book and it definitely had more laughs than the previous one. Also, Petey the cat may be the bad guy but he sure makes for the most interesting character in this. I do think that some of the wording isn't suitable for kids as it is predominantly a kids series but I think that's personal Dog Man is back in this to save the town from the villainous Petey the cat.

    A quote from the epilogue: "You know, today was quite a day! Nobody learned anything, there was no atonement, no rebirth, no revelations, and not a ounce of character development or personal growth. It was just a buncha mindless action and dumb luck. What I mean is, today was the Best Birthday Ever!" A quote from the epilogue: "You know, today was quite a day!

    Very Cute! My grandson is really into this series and since I read the first book with him he wanted me to read the second book with him. His reading and attention to the sentences is getting better even though he seems to pay more attention to the pictures than the words. I keep telling him he cant make up the story from just looking at the pictures - LOL Dog Man is humorous and that crazy criminal cat is at it again - LOL I highly recommend this series for first time chapter book readers.

    Another really funny volume of Dog Man! At first I thought it wasn’t as funny but then I did end up laughing quite a bit. Good times. Definitely recommend to the 7-10 year old boys you know (and 30-something librarians too!)

    I said it after the first series and I shall say it again. I love this series. Parents complain about the potty humor in Captain Underpants. Well there is rarely potty humor in this books. But they are still incredibly funny. Plus they are full graphic novels. Yes they are unrealistic, and complete drivel, but that is why I, and many kids like them. This time the Chief is having a birthday. But it’s like no one else’s birthday, EVER! Thank goodness.

    You'll laugh! You'll cry! You might even snicker. This is the satisfying sequel to Dog Man. It's funny, action-packed, and I like the creativity of the flip-pages. I'm amazed at the interesting and inventive shenanigans and solutions that Pilkey comes up with. I found myself laughing aloud at the old-things-being-chucked gag. So, another win for 8-12 readers (especially dog owners, I think). You'll laugh! You'll cry! You might even snicker. This is the satisfying sequel to Dog Man.

    This book is pretty funny. I decided to read it quickly before my students see I've got it and I will never see it again! They will love the goofy humor (5 bucks plus "tacks") and the Flip-o-Rama pages. The puns, the misspelled words, the grammatical errors will make this second book in the series a home run with elementary age kids. This book is pretty funny.

    It's just silly. I love that there is a plot line that is easy for readers to follow and is funny and silly enough that will make them laugh out loud and enjoy reading. And there are references to VCRs, fax machines and other obsolete objects! It's just silly.

    A satisfying sequel to Dog Man. My students are going to love it. I particularly loved the sequence of obsolete items. ETA on June 14 - I just read this aloud with a small group of students and enjoyed it, especially a few of the puns and allusions that I missed the first go-round.
