Dav Pilkey was born on 4 March, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio and is the author and illustrator of the massively popular Captain Underpants books. He has also written books, including The Dumb Bunnies, under the alias Sue Denim.
Dav was a class clown and would write and make his own books from a very early age. The Captain Underpants series consisted of 12 books and these were followed by the spin-off, Dog-Man. The author of the Ricky Ricotta series, he now lives near Seattle, Washington.
Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants books are brilliant for converting reluctant readers and the Adventures of Ook and Gluk Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future definitely has the same magic attraction. Ook and Gluk have a pretty awesome life growing up in Caveland, Ohio, in 500,001C - even though they're always getting in trouble with their nasty leader, Big Chief Goppernopper. But Ook and Gluk's idyllic life takes a turn for the terrible when an evil corporation from the future invades their quiet town...Full of fun and madness, this comic-strip style book is hilarious!
