About Dog Man:
There’s a new breed of justice in town, and he’s ready to sniff out criminals—as soon as he stops chasing his own tail. Meet Dog Man, the crime-biting canine who is part dog, part man, and all hero! In this new graphic novel spin-off to the renowned Captain Underpants series, George and Harold have created a new hero who digs into deception, claws after crooks, and rolls over robbers. This heroic hound has a real nose for justice, but can he resist the call of the wild to answer the call of duty?
About Dav Pilkey:
When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he suffered from ADHD, dyslexia, and behavioral problems. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hall 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. When he was in second grade, Dav Pilkey created a comic book about a superhero named Captain Underpants. His teacher ripped it up and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books. Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener. His Captain Underpants series has more than 70 million copies in print worldwide, and has been translated into more than 25 languages. DreamWorks Animation will release the feature film adaptation of Captain Underpants on June 2, 2017. Captain Underpants has previously topped the American Library Association’s "Most Banned Books" list for two consecutive years. In addition to Captain Underpants, Dav is also the creator of The Paperboy which won a Caldecott Honor, the California Young Reader Medal-winning Dog Breath, and the author of the bestselling Ricky Ricotta’s Mighty Robot series. Dav continues to create books in the Pacific Northwest where he lives with his wife. For more information about Dav Pilkey and his books, visit at www.planetpilkey.com.
