George and Harold have created the greatest superhero in the history of their elementary school, and now they're going to bring him to life!

Meet Captain Underpants! His true identity is so secret, even he doesn't know who he is. Acclaimed author and Caldecott Honor illustrator Dav Pilkey provides young readers with the adventure of a lifetime in this outrageously funny, action-packed, easy-to-read chapter book. With hilarious pictures on every page, 'The Adventures of Captain Underpants' is great for both beginning and chapter-book readers.

And, like Dav's other best-selling books of humour, it is sure to provide even the most reluctant readers with hours of fun.

About the Author

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, his teachers thought he was disruptive, "behaviorally challenged," and in serious need of a major attitude adjustment.

When he wasn't writing sentences in the detention room, he could usually be found sitting at his private desk out in the hallway. There he spent his time writing and drawing his own original comic books about a superhero named Captain Underpants.

Dav's teachers told him, "You'd better straighten up, young man, because you can't spend the rest of your life making silly books."

Dav was not a very good listener!

But seriously...
Dav Pilkey has written and illustrated several popular award-winning books for children. The Adventures of Captain Underpants, which has nearly one million copies in print, was an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists and a Publishers Weekly "Cuffie" Award winner for the Funniest Book of the Year; Dog Breath was awarded the California Young Reader Medal; The Paperboy was chosen as a Caldecott Honor Book. Mr. Pilkey also illustrated the IRA-CBC Children's Choice Award-winning Dumb Bunnies books.

Dav Pilkey and his dog live in Oregon.

      Comments about The Adventures of Captain Underpants:

      What a wonderful way to engage young boys in reading. The story of two young boys and how they used their strengths (story telling and doodling) to create a successful comic. Fun to read. The text is easy to read and my son enjoyed the comics (you don't see comics much these days!).
