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.

Horn Book Review

This latest adventure is as wacky, high-energy, and heavily illustrated as its predecessors. The boys travel twenty years into the future to meet their grown-up selves (a graphic novelist and graphic novel artist!); the foursome return to the present to thwart the evil plans of their gym teacher, a.k.a. Sir Stinks-A-Lot. Refreshingly, future Harold's same-sex marriage is a non-issue. (c) Copyright 2016. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Excerpts

Excerpts

From CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS AND THE SENSATIONAL SAGA OF SIR STINKS-A-LOT Most people in Mr. Meaner's position would use their newfound genius brains to end world hunger and bring peace to humanity. But these were the last things on Mr. Meaner's increasingly magnificent mind. Mr. Meaner was still a gym teacher at heart, you see. And as everyone knows, most gym teachers are inherently evil. "It occurs to me," said Mr. Meaner, "that our recent problems have all been caused by willful and disobedient children. If we are to rectify this aberration, we must proceed with prudence and acumen!" "I'm not sure what those words mean," said Ms. Dayken, "but I agree one hundred and thirty nine percent!" "Me, too," said the other teachers simultaneously. "Then you must follow my every command," said Mr. Meaner. "You must all return to your jobs and go about your business as usual. Nothing is to look suspicious." "B-but we want to be evil, too," Mr. Rected whined. "Patience, my dear minions," said Mr. Meaner with a hideous sneer. "There will be plenty of time for that in the days to come!"
