By William Russell | null null , null

George and Harold are back in their latest epic adventure, Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers! Like the rest of the Captain Underpants series, this book was written and illustrated by Dav Pilkey.

I had the privilege to interview Mr. Pilkey in June at Scholastic global headquarters. We sat down and talked about his writing and his past, including his childhood heroes. He even mentioned a Captain Underpants movie! Some of his answers might surprise you.
