Now that my son is older (He is in third grade!) I’ve had a harder time finding good chapter books for him to read in Spanish. It seems like the quantity of available books decline as children move out of the board book phase! So, when I saw that we could now buy Dav Pilkey’s series Dog Man in Spanish I was SO excited.
If you’re not familiar with Dog Man AKA Hombre Perro, let me tell you a little bit about what it’s about: The series start presenting Berto and Jorge two friends who met in Kindergarten, and they start writing comics together. The comics they write are the adventures of Dog Man (“las aventuras de Hombre Perro.”) who is half man/half dog (quite interesting combo and the kids find it hilarious!) So the series (there are five books total) is the stories of Dog Man as written and told by Berto and Jorge, two kids who are best friends.
There are five books in Hombre Perro, the Dog Man in Spanish Series:
Book 1: Hombre Perro (released 8/29/17)
Book 2: Hombre Perro se desata (released 12/26/17)
Book 3: Hombre Perro: A Historia de Dos Gatitos (released 8/28/18)
Book 4: Hombre Perro y Supergatito (released 2/26/2019)
Book 5: Hombre Perro: El Señor de las Pulgas (to be released 9/3/19)
I had no idea that the Dog Man series has sold more than 23 million copies and has been translated NOT only to Spanish, but to 32 languages! The latest book, El Señor de las Pulgas, was just released (Sept 3, 2019).
My son who is eight years old, loves the series because “it is funny and they tell a lot of jokes. Some of the characters act sarcastic and that is funny.”
