Scholastic Books has announced the August 10th publication of The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen From the Future, the first in a series of four graphic novels. The $9.99 hardcover, which will be written by Captain Underpants author Dav Pilkey, is slated for publication on August 10th.
Never underestimate the power of potty humor to grab the attention of young readers. The eight Captain Underpants volumes published so far, which feature titles like Captain Underpants and the Preposterous Plight of the Purple Potty People, have sold over 45 million copies, and Scholastic is planning a million-copy first printing of the first Captain Underpants graphic novel.
