The Dog Man books form a wildly popular children’s book series written and illustrated by Dav Pilkey. The series features a half-dog, half-human police officer who fights crime and saves the day in the city.
Written in a graphic novel format with comic-style illustrations and speech bubbles, these books are popular with children aged 6-9. The series has become known for hooking children into reading through visual humour and wacky storylines. Each story in the Dog Man series is told through several short chapters, and the books can be read in any order.
It’s no surprise that the series is so popular, but many teachers and parents ask us for what to read next after Dog Man. We’ve put together a list of ten books like Dog Man. Readers who love getting silly with the absurd humour and wacky plots of the Dog Man books could also try the Bunny Vs Monkey books or Max and the MidKnights. – or if a dash of irreverence is what’s in demand then try Grimwood. Those looking for a good streak of save-the-day action as well as crime-busting adventure in their books might enjoy Kitty Quest or Real Pigeons Fight Crime. For children who love Dog Man’s graphic novel format, we suggest trying Mr Wolf’s Class or The Investigators. Also, for more graphic novel ideas check out our primary school Graphic Novel Booklists.
