Dav Pilkey is an American author and illustrator of children’s books. He is best known for his Captain Underpants series, and also is the author of the Ricky Ricotta, Dragon’s Tales, Dumb Bunnies and Big Dog & Little Dog series. Dav suffers from ADHD and is dyslexic. This often caused him to be put in the hallway during class, leading to the creation of the Captain Underpants character. His Dragon’s Tales series has been adapted to a Canadian stop-motion animated series called “Dragon.”

Dav Pilkey made his debut as a published author in 1987 with the picture book World War Won. Below is a list of Dav Pilkey’s books in order of when they were originally released:
