Author Notes

Dav Pilkey was born on March 4th, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio. His father was a steel salesman, and his mother was the organist at a local church.

In 1984, Pilkey attended Kent State University as an art major. One of Pilkey's freshman English professors complimented him on his creative writing skills, and encouraged him to write books, which launched him into his career. He found out about a contest for students who write and illustrate their own books, with the winners earning the prize of publication. Pilkey began creating his first book, "World War Won," and entered it in The National Written and Illustrated By...Awards Contest for Students. Pilkey won the contest and flew to Kansas City, Missouri to meet the editors and publishers at Landmark Editions, Inc.

Soon after the publication of World War Won, Dav moved back to Kent, Ohio where he had gone to college. In 1997, Pilkey won the Caldecott Honor for his book "The Paperboy" but is perhaps better known for his "Captain Underpants" series, which he had created while still in elementary school. His title Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers made Publisher's Weekly best seller list for 2011. His title's, The Adventures of Captain Underpants and Dog Man Unleashed, made The New York Times Best Seller List.

Kirkus Review

A sixth "EPIC tale of Glorious Ginormity!!!" featuring good guys, bad guys, many poop jokes, and a "molto arrabbiato" "clay monster guy."A bit of dog-sledding is the only direct crib from the classic referred to in the titlebut themes of loyalty and of oddballs bonding together crop up occasionally. Otherwise, George and Harold's latest comic pits costumed "supa buddies" ("We fight for freedomthat's our duty / so everybody shake your booty!") and other allies against a trio of flea-sized villains using a stolen can of "supa evil living spray" to frame Dog Man for a bank robbery and to turn a clay figure from a new Dog Man movie into a rampaging (if eminently sliceable) monster. Meanwhile, in an ongoing subplot, angelic cloned mini-me Li'l Petey continues to chip away at his supervillain parent Petey's conviction that once a bad guy, always a bad guy. Also meanwhile, to counter Dog Man's depression at being neither entirely human nor entirely dog (which is true), his friends gather at the end for a triumphal "March of the Misfits." All in all, a typical wild free-for-all punctuated by Flip-O-Rama and, for special treats, occasional "Hurl-O-Rama" set pieces.Ginormous funwith sneaky food for thought and, as usual, step-by-step drawing instructions at the end.
