Editorial Reviews

From the Author

NOTES (from Pilkey.com)

"This book contains the very first political comic I've ever written: 'The Bride of Hairy Potty'. It's a humorous story about a mad scientist who happens to be a misogynist (a person who hates women).

In this tale, the evil scientist, Dr. Frankenbeanies, wants to create a monster. He decides to make it a 'lady monster' so he can 'boss it around'. From there, his vile and ignorant ideas get more and more outrageous.

I wanted to show kids how BAD and STUPID it is to discriminate, so I made sure that the mad scientist was as unlikable as possible. His hateful agenda is so backwards, even his naive assistant points it out to him. True to his character, however, the mad scientist's pig-headedness continues until he is finally punished by the very woman he intended to discriminate against.

His punishment is deliberately funny, too. I wanted this despicable character to be SO unsympathetic that my audience wouldn't even feel sorry for him when he gets his 'just reward'.

I have a feeling that some children will read this comic and won't even realize that it has a feminist agenda. But I doubt that any child, not even a two-year-old, would mistake the mad scientist for a 'good guy'. Even if children simply laugh at the story and come away with an idea that it's bad to be mean, then I feel like I accomplished what I set out to do.

Kids learn by examples--- both good and bad examples.

And who knows? Perhaps this silly story will plant a seed: that being a hateful person will make you look evil and foolish, and nobody will care if bad things happen to you."
--Dav Pilkey

I shared the concern of a previous reviewer about the multitude of misspellings in the Captain Underpants books. However, instead of forbidding my 9-year-old son from reading the books (which he loves), I turned the Captain Underpants books into a spelling lesson. I have my son mark the misspelled words and then write them correctly. If he's not sure of the spelling, he looks it up in the dictionary.

Format: Paperback
At first my seven year-old son, a devout Captain Underpants fan, was doubtful as to whether or not to get this book. He saw the so-so ratings on Amazon and didn't think he was going to enjoy it. But upon purchasing a used version of the book, he found he loved all the activities included.

Inside he found stickers, crossword puzzles, word finds, jokes, a comic: "The Bride of Harry Potty," and step-by-step instructions on how to draw the Captain Underpants characters. It runs about 96 pages, but it's chock full of fun.

Now, don't buy this expecting another Captain Underpants adventure; it's an activity book. If your child is looking for something to ease the wait for the next Captain Underpants book, give this a try.

Format: Paperback
My son has enjoyed listening to Dav Pilkey books for years. We would read them to him as an infant, toddler and now he loves to read them himself. He has read the books Dav Pilkey wrote for school age children, all of them. The "Book O' Fun" books, he really has appreciated the activities included in the fun pack books, based on "The Captain Underpants Series." He is especially fond of the step by step examples given for drawing the different characters. We would recommend any of Dav Pilkey books. Your child can grow with the wide range of creative books Dav Pilkey has published. I suggest parents browse Dav Pilkey's various book collection and maybe even give him a try.

I love the activities in this book. The comics made me laugh until I wet my pants. The jokes and comics are hilarious. It's not my most favorite Captain Underpants book but I still love it. Though the jokes are a lliittttlle overoffensive.

My son lives Captain Underpants. It is not the comics I grew up with or custom to but he loves it. If the books makes him want to read I say GOOD.

We bought these and other Captain Underpants for our 7 year old grandson. They are his favorite books and prefers the softcover to hardcover so that he can take them anywhere to continue reading!

Anything I can do to encourage my 9 year old son to read, even if it's something silly, is great. When I find the books at a good price and in good shape that's a major plus.

Format: Paperback
I bought my nephew this book as his first chapter book and he absolutly loved it, he sat down and read it in one day, and he just turned six. I am not bothered by the misspelled words. After all these books are supposed to be written by 2nd graders, and at that young an age teachers should not be correcting spelling, they should be encouraging children to sound out a word, and then make an educated guess as to how it is spelled. It's about recognizing letter sounds, and letter combinations, not exact spelling. That comes later. I plan on getting the entire series for my nephew for christmas.
