If you’re familiar with Dav Pilkey’s “Dog Man” book series, then you know
all about the mischief making cat, Petey, known for his crazy inventions. In the series’ latest story, “Dog Man: A Tale of Two Kitties,” Petey is causing double the trouble for local policeman Dog Man with his “butler.” Without spoiling too much of the plot for you, let’s just say that Petey has found a way to clone himself in his lab — but things don’t turn out exactly like he planned.
While Dog Man is dealing with all of Petey’s trouble, Flippy, the evil fish from the second book, “Dog Man Unleashed,” comes back to life as a bionic fish. Flippy once again tries to destroy the city, this time with beastly buildings, giving Dog Man even more problems.
As always, Pilkey’s colorful comic book-style illustrations are super funny, along with the dialogue. Just try to read this book without laughing hysterically. The flip-o-ramas (two pages that you flip back and forth to make them look animated), are especially cool.
