Who Wrote the Dog Man Books?

I am such an admirer of Dav Pilkey (pronounced “Dave”). He has captured not only my tween readers but so many young readers across the globe with his Captain Underpants series, Dog Man series and his new Cat Kid Comic Club series.

I won’t hold it against him to use potty humor and the like to engage readers because they are hooked from book one and LOVE to read.

Dav Pilkey’s story is an inspiration to young readers as well. He was often removed from his classroom and sent into the hallway for disrupting class.  

His books about kids with ADHD and how they thrive because of it is wonderful for all to hear and read.

Not only does Dav Pilkey write great books but he’s a great person in person!

We had the chance to meet him in 2017 at Jeff Kinney’s book store, An Unlikely Story, where he talked to kids about creating the Dog Man series, walked them through how to draw the main characters, and signed books.

He even took the time to look at my kiddo’s own comic books that they wrote.
