From the Author

NOTES (from Pilkey.com)

Often when I talk with kids about writing, they tell me that they can't think of anything to write about.
They try and try to come up with an idea, but they just can think of anything.

So I tell them about PARODY.

In Chapter 4, part 2 of this book, there is a story-within-a-story called 'How The Pee Stoled Potties'. This is called a parody. A parody is when you imitate something (usually something famous, like Lord of the Rings or Spiderman) and you make your imitation as humorous or as silly as you can. For example, you could make a parody of Star Wars that starred Junie B. Jones as Princess Leia. Parody is a very good example of how you can write about something even if you can't think of an original idea.

When I wrote 'How The Pee Stoled Potties', I parodied Dr. Seuss's book How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
I've always been a HUGE fan of Dr. Seuss, and I've read his books so many times that I practically know them by heart. So How the Grinch Stole Christmas was a perfect story for me to parody.

I used the same writing style that Dr. Seuss was famous for, but I changed the story to match the rest of the book I was writing. If you compare Dr. Seuss's book with my parody, however, you can find many similarities in the illustration style as well as in the structure and layout. Making a parody of Dr. Seuss's famous book was a great way for me to move my story forward, while mixing things up a bit to make the experience more interesting for my readers.

So next time you can't think of something to write about, make a PARODY of something you love.
 
Not only is it FUN to write parodies, but you'll never get writer's block because the things you're parodying have already been written for you. --Dav Pilkey

Fun Facts:

1. Billy's favorite book, Mecha Frog and Robotoad are Enemies is a parody of one of Dav Pilkey's favorite books, Frog and Toad are Friends, by Arnold Lobel.

2. Rip Van Tinkle was originally going to be called "Pee-Pee Longstockings". Dav Pilkey changed his name to Rip Van Tinkle for two reasons:
A) he didn't have any stockings, and
B) his character awoke to find himself transformed (into a puddle of pee),
much like the character, Rip Van Winkle, who awoke to find himself transformed (into an old man).

3. Petey's original name was Ralph. In a very early draft of this story, Ralph was a cat scientist who wore glasses. Dav Pilkey can't remember why he changed him to a regular cat named Petey.

4. Rip Van Tinkle was loosely based on a character that Dav Pilkey created when he was a kid. The character's name was Water Man, and he could do all the same thing that Rip Van Tinkle could do.

The main characters are Billy, Petey, Diaper Dog,and Dr. Dilbert Dinkle. Billy is Super Diaper Baby. His powers are supersmart, superstrong, and to fly. Diaper Dog is Billy's pet. Dr. Dilbert Dinkle is a evil scientist. He turns into water and then a peepee monster. Petey is an evil cat and peepee monster's pet.

Do NOT listen to the bad reviews. This book is really good. Read Dav's books they are hilarious. It inspires kids to read. I read it twice in one day.

I have read Mighty Robot, Captain Underpants, Ook and Gluk, and Super Diaper Baby. Super Diaper Baby 2 was the 1st place winner. It is the best because a baby fights a peepee monster.

My favorite part was when a robot cat ate all the toilets in the town. Pee drops brought the toilets to the cat.

I want Dav to be way grosser and funnier in the next book.

This series will help launch your boys into wanting to read. Yes, it is a type of comic book... but they are always over 200 pages, and it is filled with thought provoking "boy humor". It does my heart good to tell my boy to go read and see him happy to grab his book and sit on the arm chair... and then miracle of miracles, start giggling! lol I love it!

the book was amazing. it was the best comic book I ever read on the tablet. It was so cool how super diaper baby and diaper dog tried to hit the pee with the two poles they broke down and hit the pee until it fell. I like it because instead of they saying the pee died instead you said that it got back up. It was also cool since the pee use the surrounding and use the train as nonchuck.

Dav Pilkey just knows what hes doing with these books. My son really gets into these stories. He laughs and continues to share with others about this book. Everyone knows how hard it can be to get an 8 year old excited about books. He read this book all alone for fun! Even being an adult I love the stories too and find them fun as well. I really hope a 3rd book will be coming out soon.

My son and I are fans of Captain Underpants and have read all of those books. Super Diaper Baby is the next evolution.
This is book 2 so be sure you read book 1 of SDB first.
it's a nice follow-up to the original

Okay, it's full of potty humor and the boys defy their principal's authority regularly, but my almost 8-year old son walked past the TV, Wii, and 3DSXL to grab his book and start reading. And the giggles, snorts, and guffaws were entertaining for the rest of the family! Having raised only girls before, I have learned that boys don't naturally say, "I''m bored, do you have a good book I can read?" It takes a bit more effort. This author has created that "There's a new book out!" excitement that I wanted him to experience.

Dav Pilkey writes the most interesting children's books that a mischievous little boy (or girl?) would want to hear. We have bought and read the entire series as well as the Diaper baby and robot books and are waiting for more.
