(There are ten books in this series --- Pilkey&#39;s now working on the 11th --- as well as a few different spin-off series.) Pilkey tells us about how his career got started, when the &quot;Captain Underpants&quot; character was actually born, and where some of his recurring ideas and themes as a writer and illustrator come from.
