When the mice of Mousopolis have a barbeque, they unknowingly wake an ancient evil, a killer Corgi with known only as “Dogzilla”! This enormous monster of a dog emerges from a dormant volcano following the lovely smell of the cook-out.  Dogzilla rampages through the city sniffing everything, eating everything, and (when she is done eating the mice’s barbeque) sets to work chewing on the furniture store!  The mice are terrified, how will they ever rid themselves of terrible Dogzilla and end her reign of destruction?  How can a mouse, even an army of mice, defeat a gigantic Corgi monster?!  The mice of Mousopolis will need every ounce of cunning and bravery they have to save the city!

On the opening page of Dogzilla, Dav Pilkey warns readers “This book has been rated EG extremely goofy: Some materials may be too goofy for grown-ups.”  This warning should be heeded.  Dogzilla is goofy, silly, and wittily wonderful.  Children (and adults who are still kids at heart) will laugh out loud with every turn of the page in this uproariously funny book which stars the authors own pet Corgi as Dogzilla.  If you are a fan of Dav Pilkey, author of the Captian Underpants and Ricky Ricotta books, or a just simply a reader looking for a very funny book, than Dogzilla is an absolute must read!

Genre: Humor  •  Interest Level: grades 3-5
