Author Notes

Dav Pilkey was born on March 4th, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio. His father was a steel salesman, and his mother was the organist at a local church.

In 1984, Pilkey attended Kent State University as an art major. One of Pilkey's freshman English professors complimented him on his creative writing skills, and encouraged him to write books, which launched him into his career. He found out about a contest for students who write and illustrate their own books, with the winners earning the prize of publication. Pilkey began creating his first book, "World War Won," and entered it in The National Written and Illustrated By...Awards Contest for Students. Pilkey won the contest and flew to Kansas City, Missouri to meet the editors and publishers at Landmark Editions, Inc.

Soon after the publication of World War Won, Dav moved back to Kent, Ohio where he had gone to college. In 1997, Pilkey won the Caldecott Honor for his book "The Paperboy" but is perhaps better known for his "Captain Underpants" series, which he had created while still in elementary school. His title Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers made Publisher's Weekly best seller list for 2011. His title's, The Adventures of Captain Underpants and Dog Man Unleashed, made The New York Times Best Seller List.

Booklist Review

What do you get when you mix toilet monster villains, pterodactyl hamster heroes, Super Diaper Baby comic strip interludes, and a glow-in-the-dark, time-traveling Robo-Squid suit? A Captain Underpants adventure about saving the planet from impending doom! In this engaging installment in the now nearly iconic series, the text directly addresses the reader (Remember back in chapter 1?), and young superhero fans can team up with George, Harold, and Captain Underpants (aka the hypnotized principal of their school), as well as guest illustrator, Timmy Swanson (age four) . . . and Nana Gertrude (age seventy-one), for the battle of the century. Now, as Pilkey asks, that wasn't confusing at all, was it? Good. We didn't think so. Captivating comic drawings with flip-book mechanisms, punny toilet jokes (It's just a flush wound), and action-packed adventures make this a sure winner for fans and newcomers alike. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With more than 70 million Underpants titles in print, this series only increases in worldwide popularity. Prepare for the stampede.--Miller, Annie Copyright 2014 Booklist


Excerpts

Excerpts

From CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS AND THE TYRANNICAL RETALIATION OF THE TURBO TOILET 2000 "Here you are," said Melvin. "Home again, home again, jiggity jig! Take your precious eggs and go about your business!" "Wait a second," said George. "Aren't the cops still after us?" "Yeah," said Harold. "Don't they still think we stole that money from the bank?" "Not anymore," said Melvin proudly, patting himself on the back with one of his mechanical tentacles. "Luckily, I had this glow-in-the-dark, time-traveling robo-squid suit in my garage. I used it to go back in time and hack into the bank's computer." "What for?" asked Harold. "No big deal," said Melvin. "I altered their surveillance images a little bit. Just don't grow a mustache or a beard anytime soon, and you guys'll be fine." "Wow," said Harold. "Melvin Sneedly rescued us. I can't believe it!" "Yeah, I don't get it, Melvin," said George, suspiciously. "You've always hated us. How come you're being so nice to us all of a sudden?" "Oh, I have my reasons," said Melvin. "I have my reasons."
