Dogzilla
Format: Paperback|Change


on 11 December 2003
The peaceful city of Mousopolis has its world shaken when an ancient monster erupts from a local volcano-Dogzilla! The mice need a terrible weapon to defeat Dogzilla, and their leader, the Big Cheese, thinks that he has just such a weapon. Can the mice defeat Dogzilla? And, if they do, can they really consider themselves safe forever more?
This kooky book is self-rated as EG - Extremely Goofy, and I think that this is a rating well deserved! The residents of Mousopolis are photos of mice, Dogzilla is a very cute dog, and the backgrounds are very cute cartoon-ish drawings. Somewhat light on text, it is nonetheless a hilarious book. My eight-year-old son and I highly recommend this book!

Both Dogzilla and Kat Kong are extremely child-friendly and funny books. Every child I have ever given this book to has immediately asked to have it read to him or her. I myself stood in the aisle of the store and laughed out loud the first time I came across these books. The puns are everywhere, both visual and verbal, and the brave mice and adorable photos of dogzilla are hard to resist.

A monstrous mutt terrorizes the residents of Mousopolis.
Starring Flash, Rabies, Dwayne & introducing Leia as the Monster this big book, a mixture of photographic collages & liberal acrylic pain daubings, tells the story of a crowd of fearless mice meeting up with Dogzilla!
This book has been rated EG - extremely goofy & some material may be too goofy for grown-ups. I squeaked by, enjoying the inventive adventure & laughter. Our librarians say this book is rarely on the shelf - so popular is it with children & adults alike. Great family reading!

Dogzilla is the perfect gift for dog lovers, horror movie buffs and anybody with a wacky sense of humor. The last couple of pages always makes me smile.

Overall pretty disappointing. More of a picture book.

My 8 year son loves Dav Pilkey books, but this one seems aimed at younger children: lots of big pictures and little text.

He finished it in 10 minutes and has not returned to it. 'Nuff said...

As always, Dav Pilkey brings his humor on muliple levels with the normal, slap-stick humor for the kids and hidden (or not so hidden) references that the adults enjoy.
