When we last saw George and Harold, they were about to take their pet pterodactyl Crackers back to the Cretaceous period. But things didn't work out quite as they had hoped. They've entered an absurd alternate reality where teachers are nice, kids are allowed to read banned books, and the cafeteria food doesn't smell like dirty diapers. Even worse, they've discovered alternate versions of themselves--Evil George and Evil Harold--who plan to unleash some preposterous plans on Piqua, Ohio. Now it's up to George and Harold to defeat the evil twins and THEIR superhero, Captain Blunderpants!

Parents: If you let your kid read "Captain Underpants" have you ever checked it over? We flipped through one of Londyn's today and have decided to ban the books as it's version of humor is unacceptable for that age range. They say they're for kids in grades 2-4, but here are 2 quotes from this book:
"It's the same way with potty training: must adults spend the first few years of a child's life cheerfully discussing pee and pooopies and how important is is to learn to put your pee-pee and poo-poo in the potty like big people do but once children have mastered the art of toilet training, they are immediately forbidden to ever talk about poop, pee, toilets, and other bathroom-related subjects again. Such things are suddenly considered rude and vulgar, and are no longer rewarded with praise and cookies and juice boxes.
One day you're a superstar because you pooped in the toilet like a big boy, and the next day you're sitting in the principal's office because you said the word "poopy" in American history class (which, if you ask me, is the perfect place to say that word).
You're probably wondering "why would adults do that? Why would they encourage something one day, and discourage it the next?
The only answer I can think of is that adults are totally bonkers and should probably be avoided at all times.
Perhaps you'll be lucky and find a small handful of grown-ups whom you can trust, but I'm sure we ca all agree that you really have to keep an eye on must adults, most of the time."
"Back in the olden days, incredibly graphic violence was believed to be harmful, dangerous, and even immoral... But now it's fun for the whole family, thanks to the science of flip-o-rama!"
I'm not generally one for banning books entirely - she can read these later. Like when she's an adult. But I'm pretty confident this level of 'humor' should NOT be for kids.
