Author Info
Dav Pilkey
A lover of wordplay, especially puns, Dav (pronounced "Dave") Pilkey is the author and illustrator of fiction and nonfiction books for children. Pilkey is known for his outrageous sense of humor and some of his more popular characters include an intellectually challenged family of rabbits (the Dumb Bunnies books) and a school principal who is unwittingly hypnotized by his students into becoming a crime fighter (the Captain Underpants books). As an artist, Pilkey works in a variety of mediums including, he claims, Hamburger Helper and Dijon mustard. His 1997 illustrations for the book PAPERBOY earned him a Caldecott Honor citation.
From the Publisher
Annotation George and Harold, along with Sulu and Crackers, are experiencing an entirely new set of problems when they are trapped in a world filled with opposites. Just imagine the insanity that happens when the pair finds out that they have evil twins, and Captain Underpants's rival is Captain Blunderpants! With B&W illustrations.
Editors Note Harold and George's time-traveling Purple Potty lands them in an alternate universe where everything seems delightful, but evil lurks just beneath the surface, and leads to a battle between Captain Underpants and his own evil twin.
