Dogzilla. Dav Pilkey. 1993. 32 pages. [Source: Bought]

First sentence: It was summertime in the city of Mousopolis, and mice from all corners of the community had come together to compete in the First Annual Barbecue Cook-Off.

Premise/plot: This picture book is rated G--EG to be exact, for extremely goofy. In Dogzilla, the smell of barbecuing meat awakens a ferocious beast. This beast--Dogzilla--makes its way to the city and through the city. Can anything stop Dogzilla's rampage? Will the mice prove to be courageous?

My thoughts: I really like this one too. Both Kat Kong and Dogzilla are over-the-top silly.
"Gentlemice," said Professor O'Hairy, "this monster comes from prehistoric times. It is perhaps millions of years old." "Maybe we could teach it to do something positive for the community," suggested the Big Cheese. "I'm afraid not," said Professor O'Hairy. "You simply can't teach an old dog new tricks! If we're going to defeat this dog, we've got to think like a dog! We've got to find something that all dogs are afraid of--something that will scare this beast away from Mousopolis FOREVER!"
