7 year old DS is obsessed with the Dogman books, he devours them! Other than that he loves being read to, is always happy to do his 'school reading' but rarely reads anything else independently - a couple of Roald Dahls have randomly taken his fancy but not much else.

Anything in a similar (comic book) style to Dogman for him to move on to?

My 8 year old dogman fan loves the 13 storey treehouse series.
He's just starting to look at diary of a wimpy kid and also the Tom Gates series.
He also loves the Beano every week.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Time Hunters series

Bunny versus monkey.

Yes to Beano and Tom Gates too!

Tom Gates and Diary of a Wimpy kid are written in that style.
Both are very popular in my house.

Captain Underpants then Wimpy Kid and then Tom Gates were how ds got going, then Roald Dahl and David Walliams followed by Harry Potter!

Thank you for asking this, I’m just tagging along for ideas. Ds (6) loves Dogman.

God not David Walliams.

DogMan is much loved here. My son has also enjoyed Captain Underpants, 13 Story Treehouse, Timmy Failure. Fortunately The Milk by Neil Gaiman is awesome too. Mine is also starting to enjoy graphic novels/comics as well.

Oh and definitely Mr Gum. Big Mr Gum fans here, but we did the audio books which are read by Andy Stanton himself and are so funny.

DS loves Dogman too.

He also likes the Rabbit and Bear series and Claude.

Aldi had the Wimpy kid books a couple of weeks back so I got those too which he loved

he is probably too young for asterix at the moment though,but I loved those as a kid, even though most of it went over my head 😄

Captain Underpants is by the same writer so you can't really go wrong with those.
Very funny though so may not be great for bedtime reading as you end up laughing too much.
(TMI here but my daughter laughed so much she wee-d the bed!)

@wejammin my 6 year old is exactly the same. A those books plus beano every week

I had forgotten about Asterix! Must go looking for those. I got ds (8) a Calvin and Hobbes compendium and he loves it.

Dd (and I) loved Mr Gum but DH didn't get it sad

This is great, thanks all! I will get a couple of these in order - hopefully the library will reopen soon, I find it hard spending circa £4 Ona dogman book that is read in half an hour! He doesn't yet like to reread either but hopefully he will in time.

Thought I'd pop back on to say that the Tom Gates book are a big hit 👍
