Dav Pilkey Introduces a New Character!

Today, two special treats!

Dav Pilkey stops by every Friday to let us into the creative world in which he creates “Dog Man” or “Captain Underpants” or any of his other comic adventures. You can tap into the complete series on our Engage or Families pages.

In the first video, Dav reads a section of “Dog Man: Lord of the Fleas.” Books are great because you get to add your own imagination to flesh out characters, sounds or situations — but it’s also a treat to hear how the author themselves portray it all.

Dav is always generous with his how-to drawing lessons and this week is no different. Here, he shows us how to draw Snug, a new character in the series. Get your drawing stuff ready and hit “play” when you’re set!
