Dav Pilkey – Behind the Scenes of Super Diaper Baby 2

Just because these books are so very fun I thought you might be interested in this behind the scenes little video.

Let yourself be inspired and don’t be afraid to pick up a pencil.

The Adventures of Captain Underpants

By: Dav Pilkey

George and Harold love their pranks, they also love the comic book series they created called Captain Underpants. They love it so much they sneak into the office at school and make copies to sell. Along the way though they have made an enemy of their principal. When he gets the the upper hand they plot their dastardly revenge, only it doesn’t go quite the way they planned. In the process they bring their own superhero to life and have to make sure he doesn’t get into any trouble.

A fun and thoroughly silly read with plenty of cartoon-like illustrations. Very appealing to young boys (and some girls) who are fond of toilet humour and silly pranks. I wish I knew where to get a hypno ring that worked.

The Adventures of Ook and Gluck Kung-Fu Cavemen From The Future

By Dav Pilkey

Ook and Gluk are happy residents of Caveland Ohio, or at least they were until it came under attack from Goopernopper Enterprises. The world’s most evil corporation from the future has invaded the past to take its resources. Ook, Gluk and their little dinosaur pet, Lily, find themselves in big trouble. Taken through the mysterious portal to 2222 they find it is up to them to figure out how to save the day. Luck for them they find a wise new friend.

This is the second graphic novel from the creators of Captain Underpants and it is easy to see why it is so popular. It looks like a book but reads like a comic, complete with mini-fliporamas. yes the spelling isn’t correct and the pictures can be a bit gross but it is very funny and not just for kids. One line had me walking around singing a particular song long after I finished the book. A guilty fun, pleasure to read.
