Ok, it's just a silly pun in the title, but it's nice anyway. The latest instalment of the Dog Man series has a Brontë-ish title:
Dog Man #10: Mothering Heights
By Dav Pilkey 
Illustrator Dav Pilkey
Scholastic Inc.
ISBN13: 9781338680454

The 10th Dog Man adventure from the worldwide bestselling author and artist Dav Pilkey. You'll howl with laughter!
Dav Pilkey's wildly popular Dog Man series appeals t
o readers of all ages and explores universally positive themes, including empathy, kindness, persistence, and the importance of doing good.

The Argus-Courier loves this kind of jokes: 

One of the smartest things about this series has been the cool literary shout-outs to classic novels embedded in the books’ titles, which often inform the plots of Pilkey’s off-the-wall stories. “Mothering Heights” is an obvious homage to Emily Brontë’s “Wuthering Heights,” of course, but it’s just the latest in a string of similarly spoofy titles.
