The entire Captain underpants series is awsome! It got my son to actually read and enjoy it over tv and video games! Lets face it parents we may not enjoy books with wedgies, boogers,and other bodily functions. But this is what our kids find amusing and it actually grabs thier attention and holds it. It is funny and they love it. So if you are having a hard time trying to find something for your kids to enjoy reading, look no further this is it! I highly recommend this series to every parent for thier kids.
My son loves these stupid books. REALLY gets him reading! Warning: may cause uncontrollable giggling from time to time... about underwear and the word "poop". Thank you Mr. Pilkey for entertaining the next generation with flip o rama's and superheros in undies. This really does keep the interest of kids! I've noticed him asking less and less for me to read new words to him. It must be working.
Hilarious!!! You will find yourself rolling on the floor regardless of how immature the humor may be. The writers are great; the humor goes far beyond potty-talk alone. Kids can relate to the problems characters in this series face, and this is a good tool to learn how to laugh it off.
In the fifth "epic novel" about the extraordinary Captain Underpants--"faster than a speeding waistband... more powerful than boxer shorts"--the formidable superhero is under siege by a terrifying new enemy, the merciless bionic-powered Wedgie Woman. Will Captain Underpants overcome his fear of spray starch in time to save the world from the evil schemes of Wedgie Woman? No one knows... except maybe George and Harold, the imaginative fourth-grade troublemakers (imagination is not allowed at Jerome Horwitz Elementary School), who are also the creative minds behind Captain Underpants and Wedgie Woman. You see, it all started (as it usually does) with a comic strip drawn and illustrated by the boys. When their mean teacher Miss Ribble gets her hands on the comic book, their troubles really begin.
Not the most catching title for parents, but for the kids it sure is! This book and any in the series were a great motivator for my non-interested boy reader in 1st-4th grade. He suddenly had an interest in reading. Cute, quotable book for kids in this age range.
George and Harold have really done it this time...they've created a MONSTER! She's faster, smarter, and more evil than anything the world has seen before-- she's Wedgie Woman! With the help of her horrible robots and her horrendous hairdo, Wedgie Woman is on a mission to take over the world, and she'll give a whopping wedgie to anyone who stands her way-- including Captain Underpants.

Will Wedgie Woman's wicked ways spell the end of our heroes? You'll have to read the book to find out. And in the meantime...watch your back
For young reders who read books for the pure humor and entertainment. The characters are simple and easy for readers to keep track of, the books humor is a little innapropiate but not enough to make it insulting to parents.
We were very excited, my DAUGHTER and I to explore one more novella from the crazed depths of Gen Xer Dav Pilkey's mind. Aaaahhh, i was laughing, I was dying! Great references in the comic book, I loved the She-Ra/Superman undertones to the Starch comic. Gosh, this book is great! This is my humor exactly----I know my daughter still only gets half the jokes, (she still giggles like crazy tho) but I love reading them out loud as an adult, it adds to the savoryness of it all....! Dav (I feel like I'm on a first name basis with this guy...) has kept up the "quality" of silliness that has "pervaded" the last 4 Capt. Undies books. George and Harold get Mr. Krupp into trouble with Ms. Ribble...and Ms. Ribble takes it from there...to become-----just wait and read! Trust me, if you like James Marshall, the Dumb Bunnies or anything SILLY with a mix of potty humor, a wry young spirit and a flavor for the northwest, I suggest this series! For GIRLS or boys!
