Author Notes

Dav Pilkey was born on March 4th, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio. His father was a steel salesman, and his mother was the organist at a local church.

In 1984, Pilkey attended Kent State University as an art major. One of Pilkey's freshman English professors complimented him on his creative writing skills, and encouraged him to write books, which launched him into his career. He found out about a contest for students who write and illustrate their own books, with the winners earning the prize of publication. Pilkey began creating his first book, "World War Won," and entered it in The National Written and Illustrated By...Awards Contest for Students. Pilkey won the contest and flew to Kansas City, Missouri to meet the editors and publishers at Landmark Editions, Inc.

Soon after the publication of World War Won, Dav moved back to Kent, Ohio where he had gone to college. In 1997, Pilkey won the Caldecott Honor for his book "The Paperboy" but is perhaps better known for his "Captain Underpants" series, which he had created while still in elementary school. His title Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers made Publisher's Weekly best seller list for 2011. His title's, The Adventures of Captain Underpants and Dog Man Unleashed, made The New York Times Best Seller List.

Horn Book Review

Color by Jose Garibaldi. In Pilkey's latest cartoon-style graphic novel for young and reluctant readers, George and Harold turn to William Golding's Lord of the Flies in a frenetic existential exploration of goodness. Delving into his past, Petey (Dog Man's feline nemesis) reveals the root of his evil: childhood betrayal; meanwhile, clone Li'l Petey balances the nonstop action with innocent wisdom, probing questions (the constant why?), and silly-terrible knock-knock jokes.

Kirkus Review

Confession proves good for the soul of Petey, "world's most evilest cat," when past misdeeds rear up to threaten him and his saintly clone, L'il Petey.Adding in a free-wheeling mix of literary references, moral disquisitions, and stupid knock-knock jokes, Pilkey once again has superheroes and kaiju mix it up in squared-off panels of simply drawn, action-oriented cartoons. Here, the arrival of a giant robot brontosaurus driven by the vengeful Fuzzy Little Evil Animal Squad"We're not crooks! We're megalomaniacs!"pitches Petey and his annoyingly peace-loving mini-me into a rolling fight/flight. Naturally, "Supa Buddies" Dog Man (as "The Bark Knight"), robotic sidekick 80-HD, and, to diversify the otherwise all-animal cast, some previously introduced human regulars, dive into the fracas, and Flip-O-Rama sequences ensue. The FLEAS receive proper comeuppance (comedownance?) thanks to a handy shrink ray, and then it's time for a dose of wisdom in the form of a dialogue between Petey and Li'l Petey: "If you're good, nobody cares!!!" "Ya gotta be good anyway, Papa!" "If you're kind, people just think you're weak!" "Ya gotta be kind anyway, Papa!" Following a promise of more such "maturishness and deepality" to come, the author closes with his customary drawing lessons, plus plugs for the benefits of reading aloud to pets. Actually, along with laffs aplenty, a fair quantity of "maturishness and deepality" for biguns and littluns alike.

Booklist Review

Criminal feline Petey's past comes back to haunt him as three former chums seek revenge employing a giant robot. Petey's mini-clone, Li'l Petey, wants to help his papa, and his own pals 80-HD, the robot, and Dog Man, the greatest cop in the world, leap into action. Here is a book engineered to render sheer joy in the hearts of young readers. The doodle-scratch art, simulating a child's own frantic hand, is familiar and friendly but also robustly expressive. Authority figures are relentlessly undermined with a steady barrage of trickery and poop jokes, while child surrogates like Li'l Petey and Dog Man are dismissed only to prove themselves in the end through bravery and perseverance. Themes of family and friendship connections underpin the zaniness powerfully, without interfering in the easy flow of madcap high jinks. Perhaps most significant is criminal Petey's struggle to reform himself, strengthened by the love and devotion of his son, who poignantly elucidates why, in the face of all the world's unfairness, we should still try to be good.--Jesse Karp Copyright 2018 Booklist
