Something to Get Really Excited About!

Hey, Party People! On this dog day of 100-degree heat (our blissfully cool and temperate summer has finally hit a brick wall of heat today), we have some good news to share! One of our all-time favorite children's authors, Dav Pilkey, has released a new book. Da-da-daaa! As written by his courageous heroes, George Beard and Harold Hutchins (who also penned The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby), The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen From The Future (the second graphic novel by George Beard and Harold Hutchins), follows a couple of adventurous cavemen and their quest to save the world from evil lunch ladies, or something like that. We haven't bought the book yet, but we will. Very soon. Within the next day or so.

Dav Pilkey gets kids, he really does. And his intentional misspellings, potty humor, robots, nuclear waste, and crude drawings engender an instant feeling of camaraderie between author and reader. Our own resident Dav Pilkey fan has been inspired to create several homemade comic books, and apparently, according to Pilkey, this is not unusual. (He routinely receives homemade comics from adoring fans.)

Oh happy day! On behalf of happy children everywhere, thank you, Dav Pilkey!
