Calling all Pilkey fans…it’s a BIG cover reveal (with video!)
By Guest Blogger on February 24th, 2011
Something exciting happened last night, and Dav Pilkey fans, this one’s for you: the long-awaited sequel to the bestselling novel Super Diaper Baby is almost here, and the SUPER sneak preview of the book’s cover was revealed!
Super Diaper Baby 2: Invasion of the Potty Snatchers by George Beard and Harold Hutchins (the fourth grade creators of Captain Underpants) will be published on June 28, 2011—just in time for summer reading! But that’s not all…Dav Pilkey created an awesome video showing exactly how he created the book — in a breathtaking, dizzying two and a half minutes!
June 28 may feel very far away, so to pass the time, why not brush up on the world of Harold and George with The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby or The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen From the Future? And of course, you can always read the book that started it all: The Adventures of Captain Underpants.
There’s actually a host of valuable info all about Pilkey’s work on Scholastic.com, including teacher guides and sample pages.
And, check out what USA Today had to say about the reveal of Super Diaper Baby 2! Here’s our favorite part of their write-up: “The reason for Pilkey’s success: a Rabelais-like zest for bathroom humor.”
What do you think, readers? How do the young people in your life react to Pilkey’s “bathroom humor?” Let us know in the comments.
