Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Picking up where Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers (2012) left off, “this legendary tome” sends Tippy back in time again to counteract his earlier mistakes. So now there are two Tippys. Skip back to the now-redeemed present, in which Harold and George opt to save their pterodactyl pet by using the Purple Potty to jet back 65 million years. It’s complicated, but pretty soon there are three Tippys of varying size in pursuit of our two heroes—plus Cap’n U—who invent cave painting (cave comics, to be exact) to galvanize cavemen for an impromptu army. Pilkey is kind enough to reveal what truly killed the dinosaurs, what began the Ice Age, and, oh yeah, how the universe was created. Everything you would expect from an Underpants book is firmly (spastically may be a better word) in place: a giddy, senseless plot; an invigorating antiestablishment streak; and Flip-o-Rama megaviolence. The big surprise: finding out the grim fate that awaits Harold and George in the future. Not as big of a surprise: volume 11 is coming soon. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Really? This is Captain Underpants we’re talking about here. Try a one-million-copy first printing and print, online, and TV ads—the whole shebang. Grades 3-5. --Kraus, Daniel

When my grandson got the book, everything else was pushed to the side. We had to take it away from him so he could eat.

My 7 year old twin boys absolutely LOVE the whole Capt. Underpants collection. In fact, my son Charlie insisted that we enter a review, so he is dictating to me (I can type a little faster, for now).

"Best book in the universe!" Initially got that wrong, he made me put an exclamation point in.

Favorite part? "The whole book."

Why is it the best? "Because it's inappropriate."

Why is being inappropriate a good thing? "Because it's silly."

Captain Underpants has a special place in my heart. When my son was younger he would NOT read. I bought him hundreds of books and nothing. I found a Captain Underpants book and decided to try it. It was the FIRST book he wanted to read. Because of this series sparking his interest in reading he is now in 6th grade and reading on a much higher level. Captain Underpants has inappropriate body humor (love it) and everything thing else that can capture a young boy's desire to read. I was sad that this book was supposed to be the last and heartened to find out there will be another book. The actual book is another great one in the series and my son loved it. He said there was enough action and bad humor to keep him happy and can not wait until the next book comes out. According to the eleven year old boy it was "AWESOME"!!!

My son is a huge fan of Captain Underpants and was counting down the days to the release of this book. It's amusing, full of toilet humor, and my girls will run in to hear it when I'm reading it to him. The whole series has been great at motivating my son to read. The flip-o-rama is a big hit, as well.

My 9 year old son loves the Captain Underpants books. He read this quickly and I could hear him laughing the whole time. He's now shared it with most of his friends and they have enjoyed it too. It's silly, boyish humor that they can relate to.
