Captain Underpants


If you dream of a reading hero zooming in to your children’s rescue, you need Captain Underpants. He represents all that is pre-shrunk and cottony – and he’s an expert at helping out reluctant readers too! When naughty schoolboys George and Harold accidentally brought Captain Underpants to life, they never dreamed that through his amazing wedgie-power, their school would be saved from disaster again and again… But with evil villains like Professor Poopypants and the Wicked Wedgie Woman to vanquish, even a hero like the Captain can find himself flying by the seat of his pants!

From a bestselling series that’s sold over 38 million copies, these fabulous books full of comic-strip pictures and toilet-tastic chuckles will have children reading on… and on… and on!

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. He was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories, so he spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books—the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants.

Since then, Dav has written and illustrated a number of bestselling and award-winning children’s books, including his Captain Underpants series and Dog Man graphic novels, which have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into many languages.

Dav lives in Washington State, USA with his wife, but his writing is inspired by children and adults around the world. His stories explore universally positive themes that celebrate the triumph of the good-hearted.
