The eighth book in Dav Pilkey's mega-bestselling Captain Underpants series. Now with super-cool foil covers! Shiny! Fun!

When we last saw George and Harold, they were about to take their pet pterodactyl Crackers back to the Cretaceous period. But things didn't work out quite as they had hoped. They've entered an absurd alternate reality where teachers are nice, kids are allowed to read banned books, and the cafeteria food doesn't smell like dirty diapers.

Even worse, they've discovered alternate versions of themselves - Evil George and Evil Harold - who plan to unleash some preposterous plans on Piqua, Ohio. Now it's up to George and Harold to defeat the evil twins and THEIR superhero, Captain Blunderpants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Favourite in the Series Dav Pilkey does it again!  He continues with his usual tropes as expected but like last book manages to keep them fresh; for instance the switching of letters on the sign doesn't happen until after the "before I tell that story I must tell this story" bit.  I love this book.  Pilkey is back in perfect form!  The kids go to an alternate world where everything in their lives is backwards.  Added to the story is their grandparents who accidentally drink the last of the super juice creating Boxer Boy and Great-Granny Girdle.  The whole book was laugh-out funny.  One of my favourites in the series.  Once again as has been happening in the last few books, the set up is made for the next book with the introduction of the arrival of the next villain who is the return of an old favourite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC!!!! My son waited forever to read this book and he devoured it within a day. We are now anticipating the next one. Great read, lots of gross stuff that boys just love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Funny and Strange Captain Underpants is a hallarious comic book series. Taking place at Jerome Horwitz Elementary. These comic books are full of jokes, pranks, and complete randomness.These books are very clever and funny. Currently there are eleven Captain Underpants comic books, and hopefuly soon there will be more.
