Kids are wild about Dav Pilkey’s silly books full of action, tons of humor, and funny cartoon style drawings. In celebration of the release of Dav Pilkey’s latest Captain Underpants book, we’ve created a special video review chatting about his latest title, Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-A-Lot.
Reading Gives You Superpowers!
Dav Pilkey definitely inspires children to read – especially those reluctant readers as his hilarious characters and all the funny comic book style pictures in his books are really appealing to kids.
Kenzie and I are avid readers and can’t get our hands on enough books – they really do open your mind to the world and let your imagination take you anywhere – it’s like reading gives us all superpowers!
Boys seem to especially love these Dav Pilkey books – Kyle is a huge fan of his Ricky Ricotta series too and I think Dav Pilkey’s books appeal to him so much since they are exciting, funny, and have all kinds of cool drawings and pictures interspersed everywhere in his books.
Captain Underpants Book Official Synopsis
About the Book
There’s something rotten in the state of Ohio, and it’s smellier than a pile of putrid gym socks! Steer clear–it’s Sir Stinks-A-Lot!
George, Harold, and their doubles, Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold, have a good thing going. Two of them go to school, while the other two hide in the tree house and play video games all day–then they switch! But when their malicious gym teacher, Mr. Meaner, creates a method of mind control that turns their fellow students into attentive, obedient, perfect children, the future of all humanity will be in their hands!
About the Captain Underpants series
Best friends George Beard and Harold Hutchins are the unofficial class clowns of fourth grade. There’s nothing they love more than making comic books about a silly superhero named Captain Underpants. But now they’ve accidentally transformed their mean school principal, Mr. Krupp, into Captain Underpants himself! Join George, Harold, and the Waistband Warrior as they fight for Truth, Justice, and all that is Pre-Shrunk and Cottony – and save the world, too!
About the Author
When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he suffered from ADHD, dyslexia, and behavioral problems. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hall every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories, so he spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books.
In the second grade, Dav Pilkey created a comic book about a superhero named Captain Underpants. His teacher ripped it up and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books.
Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener.
Dav continues to create books in the Pacific Northwest where he lives with his wife. Visit him online atwww.pilkey.com.
