Book Passage Awaits the Return of Captain Underpants!

We have spent many moons staring out at the night sky, looking up in hopes of seeing a glimpse of red cape or a brief flash of starch white briefs. Now, finally, ten years removed from his last public tour, superstar children's author and Captain Underpants creator Dav Pilkey visits Book Passage on Oct. 23

Publisher's Weekly ran a profile on an event Mr. Pilkey recent held in Lincolnshire, Ill., where 500 fans were treated to Captain Underpants book trailers, trivia videos, scrapbook drawings and of course, the chance to get their books signed. 

Bay Area fans will have a chance to get in on the fun next month, when Mr. Pilkey visits Book Passage in Corte Madera in conjunction with the release of Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers ($9.99).

In this ninth epic novel of the Captain Underpants saga, Dav Pilkey takes readers back in time to the carefree days of kindergarten, when the worst thing George and Harold had to face was NOT evil mad scientists or alien cafeteria ladies but a sixth-grade bully named Kipper Krupp. 

Book Passage is delighted to be hosting Mr. Pilkey for a 6pm signing on Oct. 23. To learn more about the event and to order your copy of Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers, click here. Until then, we'll be watching the stars, waiting for a chance to witness our favorite pantsless superhero.
