Description

Walliams succeeds in combining his self-confessed love for the canine world with an amusing adventure story for young readers.

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. 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. The Chief turns to the Professor with an ingenious idea: a single dog that can aid in different police activities; a robot dog “Robodog”. He has gone on to take the children’s literary world by storm, dominating sales charts and twice winning the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year.There is a billion dollar robbery to be foiled, where only a rat who swears he’s a mouse can save the day. Robodog is the hilarious new action-packed comic caper from David Walliams - due for release in March 2023. Robodog will nevertheless need all the assistance available to overpower the conniving cats determined to destroy him; Pavarotti, a cat so large that he flattens his enemies by sitting on them; Slash, the terrifying feline street fighter who is rumoured to have killed a pack of wolves; the wise old Codger and the evillest cat in the world, Velma.

Given how much enjoyment I got from the illustrations I can only imagine how much young readers are going to love them. I have a few ideas on why this book didn’t work for me but it genuinely surprised me that I didn’t love this book. I love that the Professor and the Chief were married because the people in the books I have read who have been married to each other have been husband and wife, so it was fun to read about a wife and a wife. 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. Personally, I think I preferred Tony Ross's illustrations over Adam Stower's but he still captured the essence.Adam Stower is an author and illustrator, who has collaborated with David Walliams on several of his books for children.
