On the podcast: Dav Pilkey on using humor to get kids reading

Dav Pilkey is the award-winning author of the Captain Underpants series. This week, he joined us in the studio to introduce his newest laugh-out-loud funny series, Dog Man! We also talked about why kids love funny books and the importance of encouraging children's creativity. And Dav shared his own story of growing up with ADHD, dyslexia, and behavioral problems, that resulted in him spending most of his school day outside of the classroom. Trust me, this is one 17-minute episode you won't want to miss!
