My oldest is a big fan of author Dav Pilkey – so I couldn’t be more excited to share this Hombre Perro series giveaway. Be sure to scroll down to enter! Hombre Perro books are the Spanish editions of Dav Pilkey’s best selling Dog Man series – recommended for ages 7 and up. This was the first book series in Spanish that Caiden got into…it’s fun, entertaining, and perfect for young bilingual learners.
Since Caiden goes to a Spanish Immersion school, we have an agreement: Captain Underpants in English and Dog Man is Spanish…so you can imagine his excitement about the latest book! Spoiler alert: he loved Hombre Perro: El Señor de las Pulgas – because it was full of action.
