Dog Man by Dav Pilkey: Books 1-9 Collection Set - Ages 6-12 - Hardback
Dog Man is the latest publishing phenomenon from Dav Pilkey, creator of Captain Underpants. These graphic novels are exciting, amazingly illustrated, and most importantly, they’re hilarious. This great value box set contains the first nine volumes of the series, which will bring you right up to speed. They’re perfect for readers aged 6-9, especially those who have ADHD, like Pilkey himself, or trouble concentrating when they’re reading other books.
A life saving surgery creates Dog Cop: head of a dog, body of a man. Both sides of his nature must be brought together in order to fight crime, and defeat a cavalcade of villains. From Petey the Cat to more deadly foes, the adventure - and hilarity - never ends.
This set includes nine volumes, from the exciting origin story, to the superhero team up in Dog Man and Cat Kid, to being framed for a crime he didn’t commit in Brawl of the Wild. Many of the adventures are spoofs of classic literature like Catch-22 and East of Eden.

From the publisher
New from the bonkers genius who brought you Captain Underpants! Half dog. Half man. ALL hero cop. Dog Man’s crazy story is so funny it’s criminal.
When Greg the police dog and his cop companion are injured on the job, their only option is life-changing surgery. That’s how Dog Man is born! With the head of a dog and the body of a human, this crime-biting police hound has a real nose for justice. But will he answer the call of duty – or the call of the wild?
Dog Man: Unleashed
He’s got two legs, one tail and a shiny police badge! Can hybrid hero Dog Man stop a cat burglar’s purrfect crime?
Like any cop, Dog Man hates crime. Like any dog, he loves chasing cats. And now Petey the criminal cat is loose in town! Will Dog Man catch this notorious cat burglar? Can he save the city? And will he finally impress the Chief?
Dog Man: A Tale of Two Kitties
Petey has a furry new partner in crime. Together, these two kitties are doing their best to wipe the smile off Dog Man’s face. While Petey steals everything in sight, the super-cute kitten is busy causing chaos. How will Dog Man bust these furballs and prove he’s still top dog?
Dog Man and Cat Kid
Usually, Dog Man isn’t terribly keen on cats. (You can probably blame Petey the cat burglar for that.) But now this heroic hound with his keen nose for justice has a furry new sidekick. Miaow! That’s right: a super-cute kitten is joining the fight against crime. Can this purrfect pair solve the mystery of a missing movie star? And what’s the deal with the strange new kitty-sitter in town?
Dog Man: Lord of the Fleas
He’s half dog, half man – and he’s done with chasing cats! That’s right: this time Dog Man has some bigger baddies to catch. We can’t tell you who they are. They’re just way too scary to talk about. But put it like this. They’re so evil he’ll have to team up with Petey the Cat! Can this bad cat become a good cat? Only time (and this book) will tell…
Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild
Disaster! Dog Man has been locked up in the dog pound for a crime he didn’t commit. His pals are working hard to clear his name, but right now our hero is in trouble. He’s no ordinary dog – he’s half human! What will the other hounds think? Luckily, Dog Man isn’t the kind of dude (or dog) who sits with his tail between his legs for long. Soon it’s not just about how he’ll fit in – but how he’ll break all the other dogs out! Woof!
Dog Man: For Whom the Ball Rolls
Good guy. Good dog? Can our hybrid hero beat his bad habits? Dog Man is a brilliant friend and a hard-working cop. But as Chief will tell you, he has a FEW annoying habits. Chewing up case files. Digging holes where he shouldn’t. It’s all in a day’s work – when you’re half dog! But now Dog Man wants to change things for the better. He wants to make the Chief proud. All the Supa Buddies have been working hard to help Dog Man boost his behaviour. But he’s starting to doubt himself, like a dog with its tail between its legs. Will he be ready to save the day when a new supervillain strikes?
Dog Man: Fetch-22
Big laughs with our hybrid hero! Why fight like cat and dog? It’s time for teamwork! Petey the Cat is out of jail, and he’s ready to make a fresh start. But while he’s finally figured out what really matters, Li’l Petey is struggling to find the good in the world. Can Petey and Dog Man stop squabbling for long enough to put their paws together and work as a team? They need each other more now than ever. Li’l Petey – and the world – is counting on them!
Dog Man: Grime and Punishment
The Supa Buddies bamboozled the baddies, but all's not right in the world. Dog Man has a new problem to pound, and he's going to need his entire pack to help him. Will he go barking up the wrong tree?
