Dog Man by Dav Pilkey

New from the creator of Captain Underpants, it’s Dog Man, the crime-biting canine who is part dog, part man, and ALL HERO!

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?

The Notebook of Doom – The Rise of the Balloon Goons by Troy Cummings

Warning! This notebook is filled with monsters.

Alexander Bopp has just moved to Stermont and already he thinks it is one creepy town. First, he finds a notebook filled with monster drawings. Then he starts seeing balloon goons – those arm-waving balloon guys – all over town. Are they after him? And what’s really in that notebook?

Alexander is about to find out!


 

I didn’t know what to expect from this book. When I picked it up from my bookstore, all I knew was it was popular with 6-8 year olds who were just starting chapter books, so I thought I’d give it a go.

Think you have it rough? Poor Alexander Bopp just can’t catch a break on his first day of school in a new town. The day just keeps getting weirder and weirder!

This book is about not so scary things, like wacky wavy balloon guys, turning out to be scary! finding the courage to do what’s right and finding friends in unlikely people, like the school bully. Nothing is what it seems!

I can tell you that if your child likes goofy, silly, kind of creepy adventure mysteries, they will enjoy the Notebook of Doom! At the end of the first book, some of my questions still aren’t answered, the mystery continues, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

A great beginner chapter book!

The Adentures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey


George and Harold have created the greatest superhero in the history of their elementary school – and now they`re going to bring him to life! Meet Captain Underpants! His true identity is so secret, even he doesn`t know who he is!


There has been buzz about this book for years! Ever since this book came out it has launched hordes of kids into the world of reading. Still to this day, when kids are less than thrilled about reading, the Captain Underpants books are recommended. Now I know why.

When I bought this book, the cashier said he had read it with his son. He asked “Do you want to know what I thought about this book?” and when I said yes, he said “It was better than I thought it would be.  And I had already thought it was going to be good.”

I think that sums it up pretty well. I had already expected great things from this book, and I was pleasantry surprised with what I found.

It is creative, witty, silly, adventurous, action packed and crazy funny! There were quite a few times when I was laughing out loud and thinking, well I didn’t see that coming!

An amazing read! I`m so happy I get it now!
