Second through fourth grade students at Gordon, Poole and Shughart Elementary Schools in the Linden Oaks Community got quite the surprise Friday morning when award winning and best-selling New York Times author Dav Pilkey stopped by for a visit. Students sat in awe as Pilkey described his not-so fun-times in elementary school and how he persevered with support of his mother and frequent trips to the library. Students were encouraged to follow their dreams no matter the obstacles. Each child received an autographed copy of the new Dog Man book and a gift certificate to the Country Bookshop in Southern Pines, NC.   For additional information and images click here and here.
