Description


Cat Kid Comic Club is back in session in this dynamic and original graphic novel by Dav Pilkey, the author and illustrator of Dog Man.

Flippy, Molly, and Li'l Petey have new lessons planned for Melvin, Naomi, and their nineteen siblings. The baby frogs have a lot to learn -- both inside and outside of class. Will they figure out how to work together and see things from one another's point of view?

The shenanigans are nonstop and the comics are thoughtful, funny, and full of heart. Author and illustrator Dav Pilkey uses an assortment of art techniques to illustrate his trademark humor in this joyful graphic novel adventure that fosters creativity, collaboration, independence, and empathy.

About the Author


When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories. He spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books -- the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants.

In college, Dav met a teacher who encouraged him to illustrate and write. He won a national competition in 1986 and the prize was the publication of his first book, World War Won. He made many other books before being awarded the 1998 California Young Reader Medal for Dog Breath, which was published in 1994, and in 1997 he won the Caldecott Honor for The Paperboy.

The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby, published in 2002, was the first complete graphic novel spin-off from the Captain Underpants series and appeared at #6 on the USA Today bestseller list for all books, both adult and children's, and was also a New York Times bestseller. It was followed by Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers, also a USA Today bestseller. The unconventional style of these graphic novels is intended to encourage uninhibited creativity in kids.

His stories are semi-autobiographical and explore universal themes that celebrate friendship, tolerance, and the triumph of the good-hearted.

Dav loves to kayak in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.
