The Rancho Santa Fe Children’s Library had a Pilkey Party on July 11, celebrating the author’s popular “The Adventures of Captain Underpants” book series. The party was part of the library’s Summer Reading Program

At the party, kids could participate in activities and games taken straight from the books such as make their own comic books and magic alien juice, as well as take photos with a green screen.
