Five mil­lion copies of Dog Man or­dered

Calgary Herald - - YOU -

Dav Pilkey and his pub­lisher have high hopes for the next in­stal­ments of his best­selling Dog Man se­ries. On Tues­day, Scholas­tic an­nounced a first print­ing of five mil­lion copies for Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild, which comes out Dec. 24. By com­par­i­son, Michelle Obama’s mil­lion­selling mem­oir Be­com­ing had an an­nounced first print­ing of 1.8 mil­lion, since raised to more than three mil­lion. Next Au­gust, Scholas­tic will re­lease Dog Man: For Whom the Ball Rolls, the sev­enth of Pilkey’s graphic nov­els about the crime-fight­ing su­per­hero. Pilkey, also known for his Cap­tain Un­der­pants books, said in a state­ment that the Dog Man books were in­spired by his years of feel­ing like a “mis­fit” in school. In sec­ond grade, Pilkey was di­ag­nosed with dys­lexia and at­ten­tion-deficit/hy­per­ac­tiv­ity dis­or­der.
