Will Dog Man be able to escape the cone of shame!? Will Petey ever get some peace and quiet!? Will his dad finally make a friend?!? Dav answers each of these questions and more in Dog Man: Mothering Heights. Throughout his books, Dav has used Dog Man to deal with tough issues like loss and forgiveness, and this one is no different. Dog Man is confronted with bullying and a lack of confidence, while Petey recounts his mistakes and his struggle to become a better person. I would never have guessed that Dog Man would address the issues caused by going to jail like not being able to get a job, and not finding housing, and the cycle of crime that can create. Once again Dav has created a touching, educational, 10/10 book.
