As an adult, I eagerly await the release of new books from my favorite authors, and usually pre-order them so they arrive on my doorstep as soon as they’re released. That feeling of anticipation and excitement has carried over to my boys, too, which makes me want to do a happy mom dance.
Of course, one popular author of choice for kids today is Dav Pilkey. He is the creator of wildly popular series such as Captain Underpants and Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot, but the series of his that my boys most eagerly await is Dog Man — which is filled with dogs and cats bubbling with personality, cops and robbers who are always on the move, and plenty of thrills and mischief. Much to my kids’ delight, the highly anticipated new book in the series, Dog Man: For Whom the Ball Rolls, is now finally available to order! (Learn more about the series here.)
