Captain Underpants Returns!

After a six-year break, children’s author Dav Pilkey will publish two new books in his Captain Underpants series. Hugely popular with the elementary school set, the stories follow the hijinks of practical jokers George and Harold and their comic book creation Captain Underpants. The titles, both of which will evoke quite a few giggles from readers, are slated for release over the next year. Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers will hit stores on August 28, 2012, and Captain Underpants and the Revolting Revenge of the Radioactive Robo-Boxers will arrive in January 2013.

There is also good new for those fans who cannot wait until summer for more Captain Underpants. As reported on the GalleyCat website, Scholastic has announced that two previously published Captain Underpants graphic novel adventures will be available in eBook format at the end of the month. The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby and Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers eBooks will include bonus material such as deleted scenes, information about the making of the books and sketches by Pilkey.

Winner of the Caldecott Honor Award in 1997 for his book The Paperboy, Dav Pilkey has written more than 40 children’s books. To learn more about the author, please visit his website www.pilkey.com.
