But, with less hope as this year's batch of dogs failed the passing out parade, she is looking for the right superhero before things take a turn for the worse. Throughout the story, the other dogs find that though Robodog doesn't feel or recognise emotions in the same way as others, he is still a loveable, kind character. Another wonderful book from David Walliams, with a great storyline and really interesting and fun characters especially ratty, would love to read more of robodog and ratty's adventures, accompanied by gorgeous illustrations. David Walliams is a very popular children's author in the UK but I've been avoiding his much-lauded books because a) I've never found his brand of humour particularly funny, and b) I read his picture book The Slightly Annoying Elephant to my kids and none of us rated it.

There is a billion dollar robbery to be foiled, where only a rat who swears he’s a mouse can save the day. Given how much enjoyment I got from the illustrations I can only imagine how much young readers are going to love them. The pacing picked up but instead of feeling intense and dramatic it felt rushed, which is something I’m not used to in a David Walliams novel. The Police Chief is stressed out as she can’t seem to get ahead of it, and the entire city is now suffering. I can easily see this book becoming a fast favourite with young readers, I am just sad that I didn’t love it as much as I had hoped I would.Since I am not the target audience for this book, I don’t think my issues with it will affect young readers as there are so many crazy elements to this story for them to love. Fun story for kids about a Police Chief and Professor who are married and decide to create a RoboDog to help with the problems in Bedlam.

Robodog is the hilarious new action-packed comic caper from David Walliams - due for release in March 2023. Supercharged and ready for action and adventure, can Robodog stop the most feared criminal duo in Bedlam and thwart their evil plans to destroy the city? This robotic hero has the strength of a German shepherd, can follow a scent like a bloodhound, barks louder than a spaniel, has the speed of a greyhound, the pride of a terrier, the bravery of a schnauzer and is as keen nosed as a beagle.I thought it was a really adventurous book, and I love adventurous books because I enjoy adventures. The characters are flat and talk a lot but nothing happens, apart from things getting damaged and making sounds. These thugs are captained by the dastardly duo, Mighty Mind, a giant criminal mega-brain living in a fishbowl on wheels, and his henchperson, Hammerhands, a terrifying woman with hammers instead of hands.

Velma is determined to wipe not only Robodog off the planet but every other dog in Bedlam, and suddenly every villain has escaped from Bedlam Prison. As much as I agree this is wholesome and sweet , it doesn’t have the charm of his initial books , I’ve already noticed a shift in the writing style and the illustrator , but I wanted to complete all of his work , atleast at the time I discovered him and I’m glad it’s all off my tbr. I loved that Plank was so silly, I think if Plank could get a medal for anything it would be for being silly. On top of that, during the second half of this book the narrative split into two and we were jumping back and forth between two storylines and two sets of characters which felt disconnected and at times really annoying.I loved some of the comedy strip style in this one and whilst there was some scatalogical humour, (which I personally can't stand) there was less of it in this book. The Chief relies on the city Police Dog Training school to produce excellent crime-fighters to help her and her police force control the city’s baddies, but even this isn’t working any more. Their fight against despicable characters like the Masked Honker who farts deadly fire, Dr Stench who has bad breath as a weapon, the Ice Queen who can turn you to ice with the touch of a single finger, and the two-headed ogre whose heads are constantly in disagreement, will take them from the underground sewers to outer space, and all the way back. Unlike Walliams's other works, this was presented as a combination of a comic strip and his trademark style.

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).All of these elements are perfect for Middle-Grade readers and entertaining for us older readers as well. These baddies include Velma, the chief and professor's cat; mighty mind, the master mind who is just a mega-brain floating in a fish bowl and is behind the notorious robberies in the city of Bedlam; and Hammerheads, mighty mind's henchperson who lost her hands and uses a hammer on each side as a replacement for her hands. Personally, I think I preferred Tony Ross's illustrations over Adam Stower's but he still captured the essence. To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. Unlike Dave Pilkey’s somewhat stupid Dog Man, Robodog is not only brave, strong intelligent, and capable of heroic deeds, he is also a very likeable character who cries tears of oil when sad and whose biggest dream is to be a real dog, loved by his human parents.
