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 offs The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby and The Adventures of Ook and Gluk. 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.
The freewheeling, anarchic Dog Man returns with a tail – sorry, tale – of unity, determination and working together. Can our canine hero work with ex-con Petey the Cat for a common cause?
Fighting crime and spreading the love; everyone's favourite cartoon canine returns for more comic-strip high jinks in the blockbuster tenth book of the popular series.
