"Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild (Dog Man, #6)" Reviews
I love the dog man series. I read them for fun. I got the new one for Christmas, i have all of the other ones too. I thought this book was good. And I think you should read the one before this because it would make more sense.
Dav Pilkey used to make me laugh so hard I would almost wet my pants. Instead, he is removing the toilet humor- make that almost ALL the humor- from his new books. Dog Man started out funny, but then started getting more and more serious as the series went along, until finally we end up with recurring villains and NO PLOTLINE. This one in particular is an outright clone of the second book, but instead it's the FLEAS (not Flippy) masquerading as Dog Man (not Petey). The Dog Man series used to be good, but now the jokes are flat, including Lil Petey using the same punchline every time and the security guard that's stuck in the hole. Remember when we had Captain Underpants? Even the name makes you laugh. I will be going back to my bookshelf and reading those because they were REALLY funny- much better than Dog Man has become. I do not think I will continue reading Dav Pilkey books if the humor stays this boring.
After riffing on Charles Dickens, John Steinbeck, and William Golding in previous Dog Man books, what would Dav Pilkey come up with for Jack London? Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild continues the story of Dog Man's neverending pursuit of justice, as well as Petey the cat's struggle with his own villainous nature. In chapter one, Chief receives a written invitation from Italian actress Yolay Caprese to the Dog Man movie premiere. Dog Man chews up the enclosed tickets before realizing their value, but Yolay comes through by sending another twenty tickets for the red-carpet event. In Cat Jail, Petey puts the finishing touches on a gigantic bee robot he's building to enable his next escape, but he has second thoughts when Li'l Petey visits. Can Petey ever learn to be a proper role model for Li'l Petey?
There are worse bad guys than Petey out there plotting crimes: Piggy, Crunky, and Bub, the size of insects after their defeat in Dog Man: Lord of the Fleas, use a shrink ray gun to miniaturize an abandoned robot of Petey's. They're up to no good, but what exactly are they planning? The next morning chaos reigns when Dog Man is accused of stealing more than a million dollars from a bank. The evidence is overwhelming, including a photo of him caught in the act, and the dog-headed cop is arrested. The judge hands down a fourteen-year jail sentence, and a prison van takes Dog Man away. What hope remains for our hero? Did he actually rob the bank?
Convinced of Dog Man's innocence, Li'l Petey, 80-HD the robot, and reporter Sarah Hatoff meet for an emergency council. Accessing 80-HD's advanced computer system, they learn that Dog Man has been framed...and they can prove it. Upon arriving in town for the movie premiere, Yolay Caprese joins their mission to vindicate Dog Man, who is mocked by his fellow inmates in Dog Jail. As some members of the police did before his trial, the convict dogs jeer at Dog Man for believing he could be anything but a freak, too human to be a dog and too canine to be human. As Sarah Hatoff, Yolay Caprese, Li'L Petey, and 80-HD investigate to discover who framed Dog Man, the warden of Dog Jail chains his inmates to a sled and forces them to race up the side of a snowy mountain. Can Dog Man's friends save him before the warden breaks his will permanently? The villain who framed Dog Man won't go down quietly once the treachery is exposed, but Dog Man and his allies are a force to be reckoned with, and they may have one more member by the time the stage is set for the climactic battle. Will justice triumph even after the system turned against Dog Man?
Repeatedly in the first five books, we've seen Dog Man defeat super-powered criminals when the rest of the police had no idea what to do. He's routinely criticized for behaving like a dog, but in big moments it's usually his canine instincts that save the day. Dog Man is a terrific cop not in spite of his dual nature, but because of it, the melding of human and animal instinct. How quickly some other police officers forget that and cruelly taunt Dog Man while he awaits trial, locked up for a vile deed he had no part in. Dog Man risked his life for his fellow officers in the past and will again, so who truly are the ignorant beasts, and who the hero? The previous few books were more original and emotional than Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild, but this is a nice episode to the series. I can hardly wait for Dav Pilkey's take on Ernest Hemingway in book seven, Dog Man: For Whom the Ball Rolls. No doubt it's going to be fun.
I love the part where the dogs saved the guy and where clay model went out of the movie theater.
I liked this book because it was funny and fun to read.
