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. Personally, I think I preferred Tony Ross's illustrations over Adam Stower's but he still captured the essence. It is ruled by the baddest of baddies and badly needs its own superhero to defeat these supervillains. I loved that Plank was so silly, I think if Plank could get a medal for anything it would be for being silly.

In 2008 David’s first children’s book The Boy in the Dress was published, illustrated by Quentin Blake. All of these elements are perfect for Middle-Grade readers and entertaining for us older readers as well. 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.Unlike Walliams's other works, this was presented as a combination of a comic strip and his trademark style. The Police Chief is stressed out as she can’t seem to get ahead of it, and the entire city is now suffering.

There is a billion dollar robbery to be foiled, where only a rat who swears he’s a mouse can save the day. 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.

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. 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. His debut children's novel, The Boy in the Dress, was published in 2008 to unanimous critical acclaim and he has since developed a reputation as a natural successor to Roald Dahl. 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. Given how much enjoyment I got from the illustrations I can only imagine how much young readers are going to love them.

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. The chief decides she wants a dog that can do every task which leads to the professor creating a "Robodog" out of old washing machine parts, kinda like Frankenstein's monster. Robodog is the action-packed comic caper with cats, dogs and robots and set in a world of superheroes and supervillains. 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. 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.I love this book, really funny and gripping storyline, I’m a big fan of David Walliams’ books, I have all of David’s other books, so I’m so glad to add this one to my collection! 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?
