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!
Dav Pilkey has written and illustrated several popular award-winning books for children.
