Beloved children’s author Dav Pilkey joined Dr. H to talk about their shared “gifts” of ADHD and dyslexia, and the years of abuse that Dav suffered in elementary school. The creator of the wildly popular graphic novel series Captain Underpants, as well as Dog Man and many others, opened up about what it was like to have his desk permanently moved to the hallway in 2nd grade, the paddling he received from his teachers, and how unconditional love and support from his parents helped shape who he is today. Plus, hear about the inspiration behind some of Dav’s most-popular characters, and how he used to sell books out of the trunk of his car!
Dav’s latest book, Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild is available now! Learn more about Dav on his website, Planet Pilkey.
