Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bittersweet ending to a great series This is still a good book but not sterling. It seems rather anti-climatic after all the 10th book was said to be the final one. Nevertheless, the characters are still interesting the illustrations good and the book worth reading.

Read from the Book

From CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS AND THE SENSATIONAL SAGA OF SIR STINKS-A-LOTMost people in Mr. Meaner's position would use their newfound genius brains to end world hunger and bring peace to humanity. But these were the last things on Mr. Meaner's increasingly magnificent mind. Mr. Meaner was still a gym teacher at heart, you see. And as everyone knows, most gym teachers are inherently evil."It occurs to me," said Mr. Meaner, "that our recent problems have all been caused by willful and disobedient children. If we are to rectify this aberration, we must proceed with prudence and acumen!""I'm not sure what those words mean," said Ms. Dayken, "but I agree one hundred and thirty nine percent!""Me, too," said the other teachers simultaneously."Then you must follow my every command," said Mr. Meaner. "You must all return to your jobs and go about your business as usual. Nothing is to look suspicious." "B-but we want to be evil, too," Mr. Rected whined."Patience, my dear minions," said Mr. Meaner with a hideous sneer. "There will be plenty of time for that in the days to come!"
