Author, Dav Pilkey of Dog Man and Captain Underpants also wrote ‘The Paperboy’. I’ve chosen this book since it allows students to explore different writing styles. The story is simply about the bond of a boy and his dog who wake up early every day to deliver newspapers. Together they learn responsibility. Dav Pilkey is also an acclaimed illustrator, this book highlights his painting skills and won the Caldecott Distinguished Art honor award.
