Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Series I have a 7 year old son and we have been reading this series for a couple of weeks. I have really struggled to get him to enjoy reading but this series seems to have done it! For the first time he spent over an hour reading through a book on his own / without mom forcing it!! I hope you have the same success! Signed, Gigdet Diaper Buns :-)

He is Proffesor Poopypants. George and Harold almost cause the whole world to be taken over by a mad scientist. Dav Pilkey is writing another Captain Uderpants book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Captain Underpants My 8 year old son loves the Captain Underpants series. He can hardly wait for the next book to be published. The book relates the, normally unmentionable, human body experiences that most 8 year old boys find, not only facinating, but also hilarious. This is a silly and fun book that renews my son's interest in reading.

From Our Editors

A superhero that looks like a pink lima bean in white Y-fronts is not exactly typical kid's stuff.  Then again, this is a lot funnier than typical kid's stuff. Dav Pilkey has combined chapter book and comic book formats to hilarious advantage with this hugely popular series. George and Harold are two mischievous grade-schoolers (with remarkably Calvin-esque expressions) whose favourite pastimes are rearranging the letters on the school sign to make stupid sayings (why pass up a chance to see the word "fart" in print?) and playing incredibly complex practical jokes on their teachers. In the three previous Captain Underpants books, George and Harold have tried to rein in their principal, Mr. Krupp, whom they "accidentally" hypnotized into believing he is their own comic book hero, Captain Underpants! He has, surprisingly, acquired a few superpowers and is transformed by the snap of a finger. Good thing, too, because the school is about to face a grave enemy: a diminutive scientist named Professor Pippy P. Poopypants. Unable to stop the children laughing at his ridiculous name, the professor snaps, and uses two of his inventions to shrink the school and enlarge his pet-exercising machine, the Gerbil-Jogger 2000, to serve as his giant robotic body. He terrorizes the school and makes everyone change their sensible names to outlandish Swisslandish names, based on a clever chart. (My name, as I write this, is now Stinky Wafflesniffer). Silly? Yes. Funny? That, too. There a
