Tra-la-laa! Please join us for an EPIC family fun event featuring a presentation and live drawing by Dav Pilkey followed by a book signing! Buy your tickets now to enjoy fun activities, exclusive giveaways, and photo opportunities with Dog Man and Captain Underpants!
Dav Pilkey has written and illustrated numerous popular, award-winning books for children including The Paperboy, a Caldecott Honor Book, and Dog Breath, winner of the California Young Reader Medal. He is best known as the creator of the wildly popular Captain Underpants book series, which has more than 80 million copies in print worldwide, has been translated into more than 25 languages, was released as a major motion picture by DreamWorks Animation in 2017, and launched as a new TV series on Netflix on July 13, 2018. Pilkey’s bestselling and critically acclaimed graphic novel series Dog Man, released in Fall 2016, was an instant #1 New York Times bestseller and has more than 10 million copies in print to date. Dog Man: Lord of the Fleas is the newest installment in the series, published by Scholastic on August 28, 2018.
As a child, Pilkey was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia, which was frequently mistaken for bad behavior in class. Pilkey struggled in school and was often forced to sit in the school hallway, which is where he created both his Captain Underpants and Dog Man characters. Pilkey’s books are a magnet for reluctant readers and their humor is contagious for adults as well.
Tickets are required for this event and include a copy of Pilkey’s new book, Dog Man: Lord of the Fleas. Leander ISD families and staff have advanced access to ticket sales through September 30; remaining tickets will open to the general public on October 1. Don’t miss out on this very special literacy event!
