I love my job! I have been an elementary school teacher for 20 years. During that time I have come across several authors that have made their way into the hearts of my students and me. From J.K. Rowling to Lemony Snicket, the excitement of reading and escaping to another place has created a generation of readers. I can’t even begin to tell you just how many times I have to tell students in my classroom to put the book away. Seriously, if I had to tally up in a week all the different “behaviors I have to deal with, telling kids to put a book away during instruction would be rated high. We have such an avid group of readers at my school!
Dav Pilkey, the author of Captain Underpants, is one of their favorites, and I can’t wait to share with them that their beloved character is coming to the movie theaters June 2. DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have released the first trailer for CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS: THE FIRST EPIC MOVIE! Based on the worldwide sensation and bestselling book series and starring Kevin Hart and Ed Helms CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS: THE FIRST EPIC MOVIE tells the story of George and Harold, who hypnotize their principal into thinking he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.
I know my students are going to love this movie! Truth be told, so am I! Did you ever have a favorite children’s author? Was there a book that you wanted to come to the big screen?
