My son cannot get enough of Captain Underpants,
This review is from: The New Captain Underpants Collection (Books 1-5) (Paperback)
My son started reading these books in the second grade. Now in the third grade, he's already reading bigger books like Harry Potter, but his favorites are still Captain Underpants. We had to go to the library and get them all and then at birthday time and Christmas, different relatives each bought a book so he now owns the entire set.
He gets me laughing with the jokes. He came up to me and said "Knock Knock". I of course answered with "Who's There?"... "I'm a Pile Up" he says.... when I answered "I'm a pile up who" (which sounds just like "I'm a pile of poo") he roared with laughter and went back to his Captain Underpants books to find more things to "get me" with.
He evens reads them to his 5 year old brother. They are actually getting along with each other as they sit on the floor and read together. I never thought stories about boy humor would make me so happy. And the language in these books is fairly tame. If you can handle the word "poop", you shouldn't mind these books at all.

I am taking a leap of faith on this one...but I have a 7 yr old and 2 5 year olds. You sold me on your oldest sitting down with his brother to read these books together in a shared unfighting moment of love. Us moms will do anything to encourage reading and brothers getting along, even if it means a few potty jokes!
