More About Dog Man: Twenty Thousand Fleas Under the Sea: Piggy has returned, and his newest plot is his most diabolical yet. WHAT other new villains are on the horizon? WHERE are they all coming from? And WHO will step forward to save the city when scoundrels sabotage our Supa Buddies?

With themes of friendship and doing good, Dog Man: Twenty Thousand Fleas Under the Sea is packed with action and hilarity. Featuring “Chomp-O-Rama,” a brand-new song, a monstrous Mighty Mite, and so much more than ever before! IT’S HEROIC, IT’S EPIC!

More 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 the second grade, Dav’s teacher ripped up his comics and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books. Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener. (Please note, Mr. Pilkey will not be appearing at this event.)
