About the Author
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, World War Won. He made many other books before being awarded the 1998 California Young Reader Medal for Dog Breath, which was published in 1994, and in 1997 he won the Caldecott Honor for The Paperboy.
The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby, published in 2002, was the first complete graphic novel spin-off from the Captain Underpants series and appeared at #6 on the USA Today bestseller list for all books, both adult and children's, and was also a New York Times bestseller. It was followed by The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung Fu Cavemen from the Future and Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers, both USA Today 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.

Obviously with a comic-style book there aren't many words to the page and there are lots of short phrases or single words/sounds rather than full sentences, which goes with the style (the language is very American). I expect they are brilliantly useful for encouraging reluctant readers - it must be a massive boost for a child to see how many pages s/he has read and enjoyed - and if getting your child reading is your top priority, then these will be a great choice.
But for a child who is not particularly reluctant, I struggle with the idea of allowing them to read too many. What bothers me is that there are deliberate spelling and grammar mistakes ("supa", "more worser" etc.). I expect this is meant to be part of the fun, but I am not sure it is fun for a reader who doesn't yet know which version is correct. This must just be confusing for readers still learning correct spelling and syntax. Am I taking this too seriously? No, I don't think so, because readers of these books are at such a very important developmental stage. Reading books full of deliberate mistakes is bound to undermine both their learning and their understanding that things like grammar and spelling actually matter and are worth getting right. Such a shame!
Anything that gets my children excited about reading gets a thumbs up for me, even if it’s not always grammatically correct. Who cares? They are reading!!
Next dogman book is on their lists to Santa!
My son loved it so much he wanted me to post a review - and here are his words: "I really liked it because it was funny when they became really 'dumb' when Petey removed all the words from books!"
