Publisher Summary

When we last saw George and Harold, they were headed to jail for the rest of their lives. What could be worse? How about being pulled from prison by a time-traveling tyrant named Tippy Tinkletrousers?!!? Now the boys are taking a trip back in time to the carefree days of kindergarten, when the scariest thing they had to face was not evil mad scientists or alien cafeteria ladies but a sixth-grade bully named Kipper Krupp, the nephew of their clueless school principal. And because George and Harold don’t invent Captain Underpants until they’re in fourth grade, the clever kindergartners are on their own. Will their brains be enough to beat the bully?!!?

Who Wrote Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers: Color Edition

author & illustrator
Dav Pilkey

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories. He spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books–the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants. In college, Dav met a teacher who encouraged him to illustrate and write. He won a national competition in 1986 and the prize was the publication of his first book, <i>World War Won</i>. He made many other books before being awarded the 1998 California Young Reader Medal for <i>Dog Breath</i>, which was published in 1994, and in 1997 he won the Caldecott Honor for <i>The Paperboy</i>. <i>The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby</i>, published in 2002, was the first complete graphic novel spin-off from the Captain Underpants series and appeared at #6 on the <i>USA Today</i> bestseller list for all books, both adult and children’s, and was also a <i>New York Times</i> bestseller. It was followed by <i>The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung Fu Cavemen from the Future</i> and <i>Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers</i>, both <i>USA Today</i> bestsellers. The unconventional style of these graphic novels is intended to encourage uninhibited creativity in kids. His stories are semi-autobiographical and explore universal themes that celebrate friendship, tolerance, and the triumph of the good-hearted. Dav loves to kayak in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.
