If you’re a mom or dad to any kiddos age 6 and up, you just have to know all about the Captain Underpants and Dog Man book series… 

Dav Pilkey, the world famous, award-winning author of Captain Underpants and Dog Man is providing some fun and educational online sessions for kids starting this week.

He’s not only the author, but also illustrator of these award-winning classics, so his drawing classes are the real deal. 

We’re so excited that Dav is working with the Library of Congress to bring smiles and inspiration to kids. (& also some things to keep them occupied)

If your kiddos are budding artists, this is a fun way to keep them engaged while learning (or improving) a great skill!
