Summary: Wolfie Monster is the youngest of three brothers who run Magik Cheez Pizza. Jackson is the grumpy boss, Roy is the slacker video game player, and Wolfie is the perennially optimistic goofball. When competitor Happy Leaf threatens to put them out of business, Jackson decides to cut his losses and sell their store to CEO Lord Mudpant. Unfortunately, Lord Mudpant turns out to be an evil mastermind, and Happy Leaf juice turns everyone into a zombie. The only cure? Magik Cheez Pizza. It’s up to Wolfie and his new friend Bea to save the day…and maybe the whole world. 144 pages; grades 1-4.
Pros: I’d have to be a Happy Leaf zombie to not realize this is going to be a big hit with Dog Man fans (meaning pretty much every kid under the age of 11). The non-stop action, goofy fun, and comic book format make this a certain winner.
Cons: Teachers may not be quite as excited about Wolfie’s popularity
