Fun Adventures With Awesome Robot Dog and Its Adventures With A Bossy Villain

Justin Dean's Awesome Dog 5000 vs. Mayor BossyPants is a fun read for fans of Dog Man. Who doesn't think that a robot dog isn't a great dog to have around? Mayor BossyPants doesn't think that this robot dog is so wonderful and he decides to get rid of this nuisance. Marty, Ralph, and Skylar, the owners of Awesome Dog 5000, have their work cut out with this adventure that is about to begin. Dean begins by getting readers up to speed with all of these characters from his first book in case the young readers do not know about all of these characters and this robot dog. Awesome Dog caused some problems in the neighborhood in the past and they cannot let anyone know that the robot dog is ready ot be out and about again. Mr. BossyPants is the newly elected mayor and he is extremely busy with everything that he wants to do for the town. Mr. BossyPants is all about himself and wants all of the new things that he plans to do for the town to be all about him. The townspeople are not so sure that they like the new bossy mayor. The gang decides to put Awesome Dog into motion to thwart all of Mr. BossyPant's activities. Lots of problems begin and young readers will find Awesome Dog 5000 vs. Mayor Bossypants to be a page-turner as they read to find out who wins the battle for the townspeople.

Dean adds a mystery code to be solved at the conclusion. Young readers must read all thirty chapters to find each emblem that is hidden throughout the town. Instructions are given in order to solve the code at the end of the story.

The black and white illustrations play a large part in the hilarity of these adventures. The illustrations are cartoon-like and fans of graphic novels will find the illustrations very entertaining.

Awesome Dog 5000 vs. Mayor BossyPants was published by Random House Children's Books and is recommended for ages 8-12. It has an ISBN of 978-0-525-64485-9.

Bring Awesome Dog Into the Classroom for Creative Activities

Teachers who teach reading and creative writing will want to bring Awesome Dog 5000 vs. Mayor BossyPants into the classroom to enhance the reading experience of this fun chapter book. I used chapter books in my classroom for many types of activities for students to practice creative thinking when reading and writing.

*Assign Awesome Dog 5000 vs. Mayor BossyPants as a chapter book on your reading list. Students might like to read a few chapters each day. Students also enjoy practicing their skills in reading aloud. Assign partners to read aloud to each other as they go through this book.

*Engage students in a discussion about the problems that Mayor BossyPants creates for the town. How would they use the robot dog to go against this bossy mayor who wants to destroy the town?

*Assign a creative writing project for students to write their own version of using the robot dog to solve a problem.

*Bring in Legos for students to use in creating their own robot dog. You might also collect a variety of materials such as tubes, boxes, paper, foil, and markers for students to create their own robot dog.

*Who are the heroes in the story? The life lesson that Marty discovers is the lesson of facing your problems and doing what is right to fix the problem. The phrase "rising to the challenge" is used. Engage students in a discussion of how they rise to a challenging problem in their life.

*Students will enjoy looking for the emblem clues in each chapter to solve the code at the end of the story. Students might like to work in pairs to solve the code. Studnets might like to make this a contest for a class project to enhance the reading experience for this fun chapter book.
