Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Clearly one epic novel could never contain the hugely disgusting tale of the Bionic Booger Boy; it makes perfect sense that his story would spill out into Dav Pilkey's seventh epic novel in the Captain Underpants series, Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy Part 2: The Revenge of the Ridiculous Robo-Boogers.

It all started in the sixth epic novel when Melvin Sneedly, a nerd, invented a "combine-o-thingy" that morphed Melvin, a robot, and (accidentally) mucus from his sneeze and created the monstrous Bionic Booger Boy. Unfortunately, in the chaos that ensues, the school principal Mr. Krupp's brain switches to Melvin's body and vice versa (making for a very unhappy school secretary). The diabolical Melvin becomes power-hungry when he realizes that he might be able to keep Mr. Krupp's Captain Underpants superpowers for himself! Can George and Harold stop Melvin from tyrannizing the school--and the world--in his new guise as principal and superhero?

Pilkey's heavily illustrated books with comic-book inserts, "flip-o-rama" animation, and loads of gross-out humor are guaranteed to delight elementary-school boys. (Ages 8 and older) --Karin Snelson

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6--This seventh title in the series is witty, fun, and full of adventure. George and Harold think everything is fine as the Robo-Boogers are jettisoned into space, but alas, a complication has occurred. Mr. Krupp, the principal, and Melvin have had their brains switched by the Combine-O-Tron, and they become known as Kruppy the Kid and Mr. Melvin. The Robo-Boogers miraculously return on a space shuttle as Miss Singerbrains, the school librarian, gets into the action by taking the Purple Potty from the basement of the library and Mr. Melvin turns it into a magical time machine (a whole other story). As Miss Singerbrains and the boys fly with their pet pterosaurs, the youngsters regain control of the Combine-O-Tron and the Forgetchamacallit 2000 and they ultimately restore Mr. Krupp and Melvin to their rightful selves. However, the switch does not restore Captain Underpants's powers. Then, just in the nick of time, George and Harold come through. The Purple Potty time machine, which is not supposed to be used two days in a row, awaits the boys, but they, of course, use it again, so the end of this story is just the beginning of the next adventure of Captain Underpants. With fast-paced action and humorous, kid-friendly artwork, this story is creative, imaginative, and truly boisterous.--JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA

My son has been reading this series from the beginning and even though he is beyond this reading level he loves these books just as much as he ever did! I like to let him read things just of the fun of it and he sure thought this book was fun...with a capital *F*...
He wanted to read the book out loud to me so I was able to get the full effects of the *nasty nostril nugget* theme... I hadn't heard him laugh out loud so much, in a long long time. It was very nice to see.
The book is set up like the others in that george and harold write cartoons through out and my son just loves the cartoons. The main characters were all included although some of them were a bit different than in prior books. Some of them also had more or less involvement in this book.
I think this book was very heavy on the whole *nostil nugget/mucus/gross out theme. At times it was a bit much for me but for him...it was total and complete enjoyment. He was roaring with laughter the entire time.
There are so many books that are hard or painful for him to read in school. So many books he is required to read that are either a challenge or quite sad... I think it's important that he read books like this to remember the simple joy of reading... and this book, for him, was joy.

First, specifically regarding The Night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets: Our whole family loves Captain Underpants stories, and we were afraid no more were being written, so it was great to discover the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy, and realize we'd get to read a part 2 later on. This book tells a typically outrageous story of the boys' good intentions gone awry, when a silly nerdy character named Melvin (hey, not disparaging nerds, been called one often) accidentally turns himself into a pretty icky monster, and the usual twists and turns occur, leading to a cliffhanger that is resolved in Part 2, The Revenge of the Ridiculous Robo-Boogers.
The whole Captain Underpants series is wonderful. I was happy to discover it a couple of years ago, as my son was a very good reader, but completely uninterested in books. This series changed that completely. And I appreciate the gentle pokes at sexist principals, well-meaning but myopic school librarians and slightly suspicious cafeteria ladies; just a few of the personal memories that led me to homeschool my own children. George and Harold get into all kinds of trouble, but they really are kinda warm and sweet, especially as you get to know them throughout the whole series. Anyone who sees these funny, well-thought-out books as negative or subversive is really not getting the message at all.

We had a great time reading Dav's new book. No other kids book author makes my kids laugh so often. I'm sure we'll be hearing from humor-challenged people about the booger and related jokes. I can't wait to chuckle at the "shame on Scholastic" and "this is SO inappropriate" blah blah blah fest. Say what you want--Dav's books are the only books my kids will pass on TV and video games to read. Thanks for all the belly laughs laughs Dav!

Yes, it took something totally "disgusting" to get my seven year old hooked on reading......but hey, I am not complaining. He is now carrying a book wherever he goes....who would have thought? When someone can get a kid to pick up a book and take along instead of the game boy.....well....just amazing!

They are very cute and not nearly as nasty as the titles imply!

Format: Paperback
This book is soooooooooooooooo funny I thought I'd split my side laughing. The one thing that makes it a little(just a little) worse than other C.U. books is the fact that it does not contain an INCREDIBLY GRAPHIC VIOLENCE CHAPTER(IN FLIP-O-RAMA!). But this book is still funny and really good. Parents might find the humor offensive but it is still hilarious and the toilet stuff is kept at a minimum. There is one part where George says (spoilers!), "Big BMs have always made me think of you," but that is practically the only joke of its kind in the book. One more thing: Those of you who have recently finished Nostril Nuggets and think this will finish off the saga, it won't. It leaves you hanging yet again with the prelude for what is shaping up to be the most exciting C.U. book yet! Stay Tuned!

Melvin Sneedly looks too much like some character in the SpongeBob episode "I'm your biggest fan." If Melvin Sneedly were a Hamtaro caracter, he would be Dexter.

Facts

Underwear Day is on August 8. Piqua, Ohio is where the Captain Underpants series takes place. George lives at 1526 Vine Street. George Beard and Harold Hutchins got their names from children's book characters that Dav Pilkey liked as a kid: "Georgie the Ghost", and "Harold and the Purple Crayon". Their last names (Beard and Hutchins) were the last names of Dav's two favorite "Little Rascals" characters: "Stimey (Matthew Beard)" and "Wheezer (Bobby Hutchins)". George and Harold's school, Jerome Horwitz Elementary School, got its name from "Curly" of "The Three Stooges". Curly's given name was Jerome Horwitz. Dav Pilkey chose Piqua because they have an "Underwear Festival" there every year. Sadly, most of Dav's childhood comic books no longer exist. Many were ripped up by his teachers, and others were "borrowed" by his friends. Dav's friends would take the comics home and lose them, or bring them back weeks later with pages missing. The only comics that Dav still has are the ones he made for his parents in the mid 1970's. Dav's parents didn't care for potty humor, so he wrote about three "non-offensive" super heroes called "Water Man", "Molecule Man" and "Mr. Shape-O". Watch for these guys to re-appear as very offensive villains in future "Super Diaper Baby" books. You might notice a theme in George and Harold's comic books: the gym teacher always gets attacked by the villains, but nobody seems to care. This theme reoccurs because many of Dav Pilkey's former gym teachers were REALLY, REALLY MEAN to him.
