Attention Captain Underpants Fans!

Good News for all you Captain Underpants readers out there...Dav Pilkey is writing about Captain Underpants once again. Read this exerpt of an article written by By HILLEL ITALIE
(AP National Writer) in the Kansas City Star...


Break out the briefs and red cape, if you dare. More tales of "Captain Underpants" are coming.
Author Dav Pilkey has agreed to write four more of the multimillion-selling series that helped establish the giggly genre known as "poop fiction." The first book, "The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future," comes out in August with a worldwide printing of 1 million copies, Scholastic announced Thursday.
"I think fans of Captain Underpants will be very happy with this new book," Pilkey said in a statement Thursday. "It has all of the action, laffs and ridiculousness that kids love, plus all the unapologetic irreverence and questionable potty humor that grumpy curmudgeons love to complain about. It's got something for everybody!"
The new book is the first "Captain Underpants" in four years. In an e-mail message to The Associated Press, Pilkey said he and his wife "had to take some time off to care for my father, who had terminal cancer." (His father, David M. Pilkey, died in 2008)
