About the Author

As a child, Dav Pilkey was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD. 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 has gone on to create award-winning and bestselling books for children. His Captain Underpants series has more than 80 million copies in print worldwide and has been translated into more than 28 languages. In 2017, DreamWorks Animation brought the character to the silver screen in the feature film adaptation Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, and Netflix is now streaming The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants TV show.

Dav’s latest creation, Dog Man, continues to be a #1 New York Times bestselling series with more than 13 million copies in print worldwide and translations available in more than 21 languages. Dav is also the creator of the Dragon series, the Dumb Bunnies series, Dog Breath, and The Paperboy, which is a Caldecott Honor Book.

Dav lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.

Read an Excerpt

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."

We received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review. K and I really enjoy Captain Underpants the story line is funny, the pictures even funnier.  We started reading 2 chapters a night so it took us a while to finish the book, I have to say I would like to own the book in paperback rather than an e-copy as it seems better.  You know there is the flip-o-rama within the books and you can not enjoy doing it with an e-copy.  We get to follow the adventures of George and Harold as they seem to find trouble yet once again. This time with the Turbo Toilet 2000 that they thought they got rid of. K thought it was funny reading about both of the George's and Harold's and how they had to make it work so no one saw them together. If you haven't read the series of Captain Underpants before you can still read this one. It does give a summary of what has gone on in the other books. Which I think is a neat idea.  Even though this book was full of laughs I did feel a bit weird on a part where the teachers thought they were dreaming and they took of their clothes. Now yes funny to an extent but when there is a picture drawn of a woman in her bra and panties and then another picture drawn with a teacher and the way his undies look like they are in the crack of his bottom I have a bit of an issue reading that to my 8 year old. Yes I do understand this book is probably for the older kids, but I think that part of the book could have been redone to something a bit better.  Would I buy this book probably so.

ARC/Young Adult Time Travel: When my younger son was about nine, his older brother got him Captain Underpants book 1 since I wouldn't let my younger son have video games. It was some kind of revenge, I believe. Even though I am a reader and don't judge people's choices in books, I felt this was too much for my younger son's then young mind. After that, we were going to used book stores and libraries to find the rest of the books. When Book 8 or so came out, we were pre-ordering and getting rubber bands to snap on our wrists. The Captain is contagious; and not in an Ebola way. So now my sons are grown and I'm a grandmother to Stormaggeon. What better way to get back at my older son than get a Captain Underpants book for his son. Granted, he is young, but will sit while being read too. Besides, Storm is potty-training. Well, this is how I spent my extra "fall back" hour this year. I remember some about the books. The Captain is an alter-ego for the principal and he only thinks his stints as the captain are a dream. Even though this is book 11, the first pages explain the saga so far. It is done in comic strip fashion, which is okay....but the author chooses to do it with spelling errors. Kids have enough problems with advertising agencies flooding our children with misspelling words like: Lite, site, Xtreme, that I took off a star. While I understand why he does it, I would rather he didn't. While he uses the correct "their" (some adults I know get it wrong), he spells it "Thier". The book goes on in proper English and has the usual flip pages. It's cute all the way through and I liked the Melvin part the best. One thing I noticed different from the old books is that the pages are heavy matte pages. I didn't like the shine from my lamp and had to read it in a well lit room. I could only think about a child trying to get in a good position while trying sneak a read at night. The author's bio at the end is heartwarming. My younger son made "sounds" in class as he thought about a story in his head; usually Power Rangers. I had to tell his teachers that those sounds would eventually make him a millionaire. Those sounds he made as a child became a love for the trumpet and he's in college with a scholarship. So I guess the Captain Underpants books worked.
