My son loved this entire series when he was in elementary and middle school. It's certainly irreverent, but hilarious and such a fun way to encourage a reluctant reader. He's now in college and a constant reader. If you're looking for a book to jump-start a lifetime of reading, Captain Underpants may well be the solution!
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.
