Fun with Dav Pilkey and The Adventures of Ook and Gluk

There are many ways to describe Dav Pilkey’s books but one word all fans can agree on is fun. From Captain Underpants and Ricky Ricotta’s Giant Robot vs. the Voodoo Vultures from Venus to Dog Breathto Dog Breath! and The Dumb Bunnies, kids love the heroes, and evil villains, diapers and potty humor.  In an article from the Chicago Tribune, Pilkey says “A book without potty humor is like a banana split without hot fudge. It can still be good, I suppose, but you kinda get the feeling that something is missing.”

Nothing is missing in the new series The Adventures of Ook and Gluk where caveman best friends get into all kinds of trouble in their efforts to save the world from evil lunch ladies and other insidious souls. The author says that his books “give children a chance to live vicariously through kids with REAL POWER… The good guys (kids) always win and the bad guys (mean grown-ups) always get what they deserve: A good, swift kick in the pants. It’s good, clean fun.”
