One of my Favorites

I love Dav Pilkey the author of the Captain Underpants Series! I have a son who is quite bright but yet I had to force him to sit down and read for his daily reading log requirement. I picked up some Captain Underpants Books and now my son will take the book on his own time and go up to his room to read. Mr. Pilkey has been banned and challenged due to what others feel is improper behavior and fears that chidlren will act out! Again when dealing with cencsorship, someone or a group is trying to do what they think is best and taking away others rights to view certain materials. This series has been such a success with young boys that have a hard time getting into reading, it is sad when others try to take away these books. Here is an interview with Mr. Pilkey.
