Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In the fifth "epic novel" about the extraordinary Captain Underpants--"faster than a speeding waistband... more powerful than boxer shorts"--the formidable superhero is under siege by a terrifying new enemy, the merciless bionic-powered Wedgie Woman. Will Captain Underpants overcome his fear of spray starch in time to save the world from the evil schemes of Wedgie Woman? No one knows... except maybe George and Harold, the imaginative fourth-grade troublemakers (imagination is not allowed at Jerome Horwitz Elementary School), who are also the creative minds behind Captain Underpants and Wedgie Woman. You see, it all started (as it usually does) with a comic strip drawn and illustrated by the boys. When their mean teacher Miss Ribble gets her hands on the comic book, their troubles really begin.

Fans who have been eagerly awaiting Book 5 in the series, preceded by such gems as Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space and Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants, will heave a sigh of relief at the appearance of Pilkey's latest tongue-in-cheek superhero adventure novel. Goofier than ever, with plenty of boyish drawings and juvenile humor, this lightweight chapter book is the answer to reluctant (and avid) readers' dreams. If descriptions of Wedgie Woman's bionic hair and the "ubrupt" ending of the "happyness" on the planet of Underpantyworld don't turn grade-schoolers into bookworms, what will? By the way, don't let the quotation from Einstein at the front of the book mislead you; this is lowbrow humor at its very finest. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman serves up waistband-expanding comedy in this fifth story in the series. George and Harold struggle to pass fourth grade after their comic book imaginings rub their teacher, Ms. Ribble, the wrong way.

Shocking news! A review by a woman, for her daughter! Gasp, swoon! No you say! Ha ha! At last! The latest from Jerome Horowitz Elementary is out! We were very excited, my DAUGHTER and I to explore one more novella from the crazed depths of Gen Xer Dav Pilkey's mind. Aaaahhh, i was laughing, I was dying! Great references in the comic book, I loved the She-Ra/Superman undertones to the Starch comic. Gosh, this book is great! This is my humor exactly----I know my daughter still only gets half the jokes, (she still giggles like crazy tho) but I love reading them out loud as an adult, it adds to the savoryness of it all....! Dav (I feel like I'm on a first name basis with this guy...) has kept up the "quality" of silliness that has "pervaded" the last 4 Capt. Undies books. George and Harold get Mr. Krupp into trouble with Ms. Ribble...and Ms. Ribble takes it from there...to become-----just wait and read! Trust me, if you like James Marshall, the Dumb Bunnies or anything SILLY with a mix of potty humor, a wry young spirit and a flavor for the northwest, I suggest this series! For GIRLS or boys!

Captain Underpants threatens to change the way our children read. Exposure to these books will cause them to read faster, more often, with more enthusiasm, and at a higher reading level. They will start to think that reading is really COOL.
Pilkey is a brilliant storyteller. The writing is imaginative and challenging. My 5 year old is now breezing through words such as "torrential", "emphasize", "individuality" and "conformity". He and his seven-year-old brother now prefer creating their own comic books to watching television.
Some uptight parents might not want their children exposed to words like "pee-pee", "poop" and "doo-doo". They might also be squeamish about their kids finding out what a "wedgie" is. Those parents might be well advised to lighten up a bit.

Format: Paperback
Let's say you hypnotized your teacher into being a Wicked Wedgie Woman. And she started to terrorize the city. And your only hope was a guy wearing underpants and a office curtain around his neck.
But you actually have a chance. Because that guy wearing underpants and an office curtain around his neck is --TRA-LA-LA! --Captain Underpants!
This funny story starts off when the two main characters, George and Harold (probably the most imaginative kids in the entire Captain Underpants world), trick their principal Mr. Krupp into signing a ``will-you-marry-me`` card and delivering it personally to their teacher Ms. Ribble.
Not till the day of the marriage does Mr. Krupp finally tell everyone (including Ms. Ribble) that George and Harold tricked him into giving the card to Ms. Ribble.
The next day, Ms. Ribble told George and Harold that because they made her so mad, she was going to lower their grades from B's and C's to F's and G's (even if there is no such grade as a G).
George and Harold were so mad at Ms. Ribble for doing the grade changing that they took the hypno-ring (from the first book of Captain Underpants ) and hypnotized Ms. Ribble to change their grades - and NOT turn into a Wicked Wedgie Woman, NOT take over the world and NOT try to destroy Captain Underpants .
But then George and Harold find out that the hypno-ring makes women do the opposite of what they=re hypnotized to do!
So now it's up to George , Harold and Captain Underpants to stop the rampaging Wedgie Woman before she takes over the world.
So far there are five Captain Underpants books and another fun activity book and they are all really funny. The one I just told you about is the fifth.
I think the fifth is the best and it deserves a few words.

Follow George and Harold as they try to undo a horrible, hypnotizing accident with the help of the greatest superhero in the world,CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS. This action-packed thriller consist of two kids with large imaginations,a principal/superhero, a teacher gone wacko and two giant robots. This book is awesome for ages 7-14.

I purchased my first Captain Underpants a week ago for my 6yo 1st grader who is reading well for his age. He loved it and begged my to buy the other books in the series. He took it to show and tell at school, reads them at night rather than watch cartoons, and has gotten his cousin into them as well. The humor is directed perfectly to young boys and will get them hooked on the joys of reading. I highly recommend these books, especially for reluctant readers.

Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman

Do you like to read funny books that make you laugh threw every single chapter? Well then you should definitely read Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Women by Dav Pilkey. In this book George Beard and Harold Hutchins tries to get their teacher Ms. Ribble to change their grades back to normal because they tricked her into almost marrying the principal. So Harold Hutchins comes up with the idea of trying to hypnotize Ms. Ribble.

But little did both Harold and George know that the hypotonic ring they had purchased a while back worked differently on women. Every time they tell women something, the hypnotized female does the opposite. While hypnotizing their teacher Harold told her, you will change our grades back, not turn into wedgie women, not try to destroy Captain Underpants, and not try to take over the world. So now seeing how George Beard and Harold Hutchins made the mistake of their lives. Both George and Harold are now are now going to soon regret it.

If you want to find out what's going to happen to George and Harold then you should go out and READ THIS BOOK!
