David "Dav" Pilkey (born March 4, 1966), is a popular children's author and artist. Dav Pilkey is best known as the author and illustrator of the Captain Underpants book series. He lives near Seattle, Washington with his wife, Sayuri.
Dav Pilkey was born on March 4, 1966 Pilkey.comin Cleveland, Ohio to David Pilkey Sr. and Barbara Pembridge Pilkey. He has one older sister, Cindy.
In elementary school in Elyria, Ohio, he was diagnosed as suffering from ADHD and dyslexia. Pilkey was frequently reprimanded for his behavior in class and spent a lot of time sitting at a desk in the school hallway, where he created the Captain Underpants character. Pilkey entered his first book, World War Won, in a national competition for student authors and won in his age category. The award included the book's publishing in 1987.
The odd spelling of his first name came from a period of employment in a Pizza Hut, when the "e" was omitted from his nametag. Even though it is spelled Dav, it is pronounced "Dave" (rhyming with cave and brave).
After moving to Washington state, he met his sweetheart Sayuri, a professional musician and owner of his favorite Japanese sushi restaurant.In 2005, Dav and Sayuri were married.
Pilkey took a break from writing for a few years to care for his terminally ill father, but, as of March 19th, 2010, has signed a deal with Scholastic to release four new books. The first, a graphic novel, "The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen From the Future," was released on August 10, 2010.
