Dog Man and Cat Kid

A Scholastic book that the Kiddo actually bought through his school's Scholastic book order.

Title: Dog Man and Cat Kid
Publisher: Scholastic
Date: 2018
Writer: Dav Pilkey
Artist: Dav Pilkey
Colorist: Jose Garibaldi

Gotta love a book that manages to drop references to John Steinbeck, Mary Poppins, and Snakes on a Plane without skipping a beat.

This tale of good and evil features the good Dog Man, the evil Petey the Cat, and Petey's kitten clone Li'L Petey, who is caught in between.

There is also a Dog Man movie being made, and a robot who was programmed to obey, but who must learn about the nature of friendship.

This was funny all the way through, with some clever plotting and some surprisingly touching scenes.

Rating: 9/10
