Pilkey is author of several fabulously popular children's book series including Captain Underpants, Dog Man, Ricky Ricotta and The Dumb Bunnies, and the recipient of numerous children's literature awards.

At the party we'll have special games, crafts, treats and activities all related to Dog Man and Captain Underpants. Get a picture with Dog Man and meet our special guests, Officer Bob Larsen and his K9 partner, Badger, from the Hudson Police Department. There is no registration required for this free event.
