Dav Pilkey appears at the University Book Store on Friday September 11, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-A-Lot!
Captain Underpants and mischievous fourth graders George Beard and Harold Hutchins are back in the twelfth uproarious adventure by Dav Pilkey. But when a meteorite transforms their gym teacher Mr. Meaner into a mad genius who turns all children into blindly obedient homework machines, they venture into the future to call on the only people who can help them break the spell—their adult selves. With middle-aged George and Harold there to help, the hilarity only grows as fart jokes and brain melting puns are joined by funny references to middle age, laxatives, and the like. Stopping in Seattle for an evening of reading, drawing, and other shenanigans, Pilkey will share and sign his madcap new adventure.
-Pilkey will personalize one book per customer with an original drawing.
