You have a chance to meet best-selling children’s author and illustrator Dav Pilkey at the Egyptian Theatre on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
The creator of the popular “Captain Underpants” book series will unveil “Dog Man,” his new addition to the “Underpants” universe. It’s about a half-canine, half-human crimestopper created when Greg the police dog and his cop companion are injured on the job and undergo a life-saving surgery that combines the best of both.
Pilkey writes: “With the head of a dog and the body of a human, this heroic hound has a real nose for justice. But can he resist the call of the wild long enough to answer the call of duty?”
This is Pilkey’s second appearance in Boise. He spoke in 2013 at the Library Main Branch. This time, the Library presents him at the larger Egyptian Theatre, where he will talk about his books and draw an illustration. Kids can win prizes and get photos taken with Captain Underpants and Dog Man.
