Jordan loved reading the past Captain Underpants so I asked him to help me out with this review again as he is a big reader, and is always eager to read the new books that come our way!
As I read Captain Underpants, I really didn’t know I was learning new words to add to my vocabulary until when I was finished. The learning was hidden under all the humour and that’s something I, and I’m sure other kids, like in a book. I prefer the fantasy genre but I had no problem enjoying Captain Underpants. It’s nice to see characters sticking with the book as I even recognized some characters from the very first book! Captain Underpants was an overall funny book, very interactive with the “FlipORamas” that occurred at various times in the book.
George, Harold, and their doubles, Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold, have a good thing going. Two of them go to school, while the other two hide in the tree house and play video games all day–then they switch! But when their malicious gym teacher, Mr. Meaner, creates a method of mind control that turns their fellow students into attentive, obedient, perfect children, the future of all humanity will be in their hands!
About the Captain Underpants series
Best friends George Beard and Harold Hutchins are the unofficial class clowns of fourth grade. There’s nothing they love more than making comic books about a silly superhero named Captain Underpants. But now they’ve accidentally transformed their mean school principal, Mr. Krupp, into Captain Underpants himself! Join George, Harold, and the Waistband Warrior as they fight for Truth, Justice, and all that is Pre-Shrunk and Cottony – and save the world, too!
When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he suffered from ADHD, dyslexia, and behavioral problems. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hall every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories, so he spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books.
In the second grade, Dav Pilkey created a comic book about a superhero named Captain Underpants. His teacher ripped it up and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books.
Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener.
Dav continues to create books in the Pacific Northwest where he lives with his wife. Visit him online at www.pilkey.com
