Dav (pronounced Dave) Pilkey is an American author and illustrator of children’s books, best known for the Captain Underpants series and its spin-off Dog Man. Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and dyslexia as a child, Pilkey spent a lot of time in school creating Captain Underpants comic strips – that his teachers sternly told him would lead nowhere. The Adventures of Captain Underpants book was published in 1997, inaugurating one of the most successful children’s literature franchises of recent times. Alongside the Captain Underpants series, Pilkey penned the Ricky Ricotta’s Mighty Robot sequence as well as Underpants spin off The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby. In 2016 Pilkey unveiled Dog Man, another spin off from his most successful series, which looks set to rival the popularity of Captain Underpants himself.
In another riotously funny and original Dog Man adventure, our canine crusader confronts the dastardly Piggy and his latest plot to sabotage the Supa Buddies and the city.
