Tra-la-laaa! The wait is over! Dav Pilkey--ahem--we mean, George Beard and Harold Hutchins, the bestselling authors of THE ADVENTURES OF SUPER DIAPER BABY, are back with their second graphic novel!
Meet Ook and Gluk, the stars of this sensationally silly graphic novel from the creators of Captain Underpants! It's 500,001 BC, and Ook and Gluk's hometown of Caveland, Ohio, is under attack by an evil corporation from the future. When Ook, Gluk, and their little dinosaur pal Lily are pulled through a time portal to 2222, they discover a future world that's even more devastated than their own. Luckily, they find a friend in Master Wong, a martial arts instructor who trains them in the ways of kung fu. Now all they have to do is travel back in time 502,223 years and save the day!
The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung-Fu Cavemen From The Future is the second graphic novel written by Dav Pilkey's fictional characters, George Beard and Harold Hutchins. It was released in North America on August 10th, 2010.
THE ADVENTURES OF OOK and GLUK is the second graphic novel “made by” George Beard and Harold Hutchins, the boys who “created” Captain Underpants (following 2002’s THE ADVENTURES OF SUPER DIAPER BABY). Pilkey works carefully to create a graphic novel that looks and reads like it was written by boys, but that also has a coherent, if humorously meandering, plot. Ook and Gluk seem like they could be any boy around: funny, inventive, and a good deal chaotic. Their ordinariness will appeal to readers, especially boys, who will enjoy picturing themselves as the kung-fu heroes. The environmental element is worked in nicely, getting the point across without belaboring it. The villains are defeated by their own hubris, and the boys even get the girls in the end, but without any kissing to scare off readers allergic to cooties.
