Quotes
I dont remember much about my early childhood,
except that I was almost always happy. My
parents tell me that I used to laugh in my sleep
all the time, even as an infant. When I wasnt
laughing, I kept myself busy by drawing.
When I was a kid making silly books out in the
hall, I never dreamed that one day Id be making
silly books for a living. The coolest thing is
that I used to get in trouble for being the class
clown and now its my job!

Critical Response
Say what you like about Dav Pilkeys Captain
Underpants series its silly, its over the
top, its filled with bathroom humor but you
must admit that Pilkey knows what makes kids
laugh. Horn Book March/April 2002
With humor tailored expertly for primary-aged
children, these silly gooses will be welcomed by
listeners and newly independent readers
alike. Carolyn Noah, School Library
Journal/February 1998
