Description

The characters are flat and talk a lot but nothing happens, apart from things getting damaged and making sounds. The Chief turns to the Professor with an ingenious idea: a single dog that can aid in different police activities; a robot dog “Robodog”. It is ruled by the baddest of baddies and badly needs its own superhero to defeat these supervillains.

There is a billion dollar robbery to be foiled, where only a rat who swears he’s a mouse can save the day. Best-known for his novels for children including Mr Stink, Billionaire Boy and Awful Auntie, Walliams has also written a number of picture books including The Slightly Annoying Elephant, working with two of Britain’s most talented illustrators, Quentin Blake and Tony Ross.

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. These baddies include Velma, the chief and professor's cat; mighty mind, the master mind who is just a mega-brain floating in a fish bowl and is behind the notorious robberies in the city of Bedlam; and Hammerheads, mighty mind's henchperson who lost her hands and uses a hammer on each side as a replacement for her hands.

In 2008 David’s first children’s book The Boy in the Dress was published, illustrated by Quentin Blake. The action begins early, even if it’s slapstick and silly, the tension builds as Robodog chases villains, supervillains are chasing dogs, and the Chief and her wife the Professor are caught up in the middle. We use cookies to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic.The city of Bedlam is desperate; the streets are rat-infested and filthy; the buildings dilapidated, and, worst of all, the inhabitants are ruled by super villains of the underworld. 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. The Police Chief is stressed out as she can’t seem to get ahead of it, and the entire city is now suffering. I thought it was a really adventurous book, and I love adventurous books because I enjoy adventures. 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.

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! The pacing picked up but instead of feeling intense and dramatic it felt rushed, which is something I’m not used to in a David Walliams novel. Robodog is the action-packed comic caper with cats, dogs and robots and set in a world of superheroes and supervillains. 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?I loved seeing elements of the story highlighted by the illustrations, especially the wacky characters. David Walliams is a very popular children's author in the UK but I've been avoiding his much-lauded books because a) I've never found his brand of humour particularly funny, and b) I read his picture book The Slightly Annoying Elephant to my kids and none of us rated it.

The writing was fast-paced, easy to follow, and a little bit naughty, and the characters were weird and wacky.Insane story that any child with imagination will enjoy reading either just to themselves of hearing and sharing read aloud.
