Amazon.com Review

Move over, Captain Underpants! There's a tiny new superhero in town. Undaunted by Principal Krupp's insistence that their essay assignment on good citizenship not be another comic book about the briefs-clad warrior, fourth graders George and Harold decide to invent a new superhero. Super Diaper Baby is born! It's up to our fearless infant hero to save the planet from diabolical Deputy Doo-Doo and his reluctantly evil pooch, Danger Dog ("I'm not really evil. I'm just in it for the kibbles."). Several robotic battles, intergalactic digressions, and "flip-o-ramas" later, Super Diaper Baby has done his duty, and George and Harold are in trouble yet again with their principal. Still, it was worth it, as any fan of Dav Pilkey's lowbrow, scatologically inclined "epic novels" (The Adventures of Captain Underpants, Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman, etc.) will attest. George and Harold's spelling is atrocious, their humor is straight off the grade school playground, and kids love every page of it. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

When the principal discovers incorrigible fourth graders George and Harold in the gym, running over ketchup packets with their skateboards, he punishes them with the assignment of writing a 100-page essay on good citizenship and cautions them against turning in another comic book about Captain Underpants. No problemo for this creative duo, who instead invent another slightly younger "super hero." The madcap misadventures of this diapered daredevil possess all the kid-tickling silliness that fans of his underwear-clad predecessor apparently can't get enough of plus ample doses of bathroom humor. When the doctor gives him "the spank of life" at birth, he slaps the newborn too hard and the infant goes flying out the hospital window, landing in a container of "super power juice" that evil Deputy Dangerous has zapped from Captain Underpants. Then, trying to retrieve the powers from Baby, the villain inadvertently turns himself into the "piece of poo" that was in the young hero's diaper. "Deputy Doo-Doo" then seeks revenge alas, to no avail, since in the end, his once-loyal pooch and Baby wrap him up mummy-like in (what else?) toilet paper. Visually similar to the Captain Underpants capers, Pilkey's latest is replete with misspellings, pleasingly bad puns and the "flip-o-rama" feature that slips some rudimentary animation into these preposterously good-humored pages. Novice graphic-novel creators will appreciate a concluding "How 2 Draw" section. Ages 7-10.

Format: Paperback
My 6 1/2 year old daughter, 4 1/2 year old son, as well as my
wife and I all enjoyed it very much. We have been Pilkey fans for
awhile and have enjoyed all of the Captain Underpants Series and
Ricky Ricotta Series. This is really an extension of Captain
Underpants, but it is all written as if it were a George and Harold
comic book. If you're familiar with Captain Underpants you'll know what
that means. Basically Pilkey created 2 mischevious gradeschoolers
who make up comic books about Captain Underpants and inadvertantly
created a "real" Captain Underpants. When they get into trouble and
have to write an essay, they wind up making up a new character, Super
Diaper Baby, which is the basis of this book/comic book. The humor
appeals to children, but also contain references which will amuse the
parents. Its a little harder for non-readers to follow than Captain
Underpants because its all written as a comic book, but my son was able
to follow and enjoy it quite a bit. The Flip-O-Ramas are fun as usual
although they are less professional (this book is by 9 and 10 year olds,
not an adult). If you're not familiar with Captain Underpants, I'd buy the
4-pack 1st and when you're addicted to the series, then get this book.
But even if its your first Pilkey book, you'll like it.

I'm really very happy with the Super Diaper Baby and Captain Underpants books. Is it what I would run out and "choose" for my daughter to read? Not in a million years. But my daughter has been reading since she was three years old. During first grade this past school year she was tested at a fifth grade reading level. Yet she rarely read. This series has seriously sparked her interest in reading and opens the doors for more books. The "potty humor".....kids are going to be exposed to that with or without these books. I can remeber finding potty humor hilarioius as a kid. I say let them be kids, continue to teach them what's appropriate and when and thank God they have a desire to read. I'm thrilled to see a "passion" for books finally developing in my 7 year old.

Dav Pilkey never fails to make me laugh. This book is written under the guise that his Captain Underpants protagonists, Harold Hutchins and George Beard, have to write an essay about why you should be a good citizen. The result is Super Diaper Baby, a super tot who fights for truth, justice, and the pursuit of a clean diaper.
The less said the better, let's just say that parents will cringe at the thought of their child reading this, then sit down in private and laugh themselves silly. This is a great little book for young and old.

Bad enough that children today are presented with so many spelling challenges in mass marketing (krispy kreme, donut, quik trip, etc. As a K-8 educator AND parent, their reading material is where I have to draw the line. Has this author no editors? Even if you can see past the disturbing subject matter (a book all about poop), why would you want your student studying a text with blatant spelling errors? From the front cover ("laffs") to the last page ("hapily") and everywhere in between, if your student already struggles AT ALL with spelling, this is definitely NOT the book you'll want them reading!

For the same money, you could purchase two different books of Geronimo Stilton or Ready Freddy, or even R.L. Stine's Goosebumps, any of which would be a much better 2nd-4th grade student literature investment in this educator's opinion.

Super Diaper Baby - it's very fun because the bad
guy is poo and he steps on people. I recommend you
could buy it because it's very funny and the bad guy
turns into poo. There's a bad dog but he turns good.
Buy this book and also buy captain underpants because
Captain Underpants came first. But I recommend that you
read Captain Underpants first even though Super Diaper
Baby is funnier.

The book was great. I wonder if the second book will be better than the first one. I wonder if you can make a third or a fourth book of super diaper baby.

Things I like about super diaper baby -

·It's cool how you tell us how to draw characters from the book. For example - you tell us how to draw super diaper baby, diaper dog and other characters.

·When the poop got bigger and running it was cool how you said the I seen people step on poo but I never seen poop step on people.

·I'm just saying that in every movie or book well I dosent mater witch one but I'm just saying every book and movie I seen good.guys always win.

My two 8-year-old boys were just beginning to really read on their own last spring, and they expressed some interest in this book so I bought it for them. They fought over it and both seem to have enjoyed it, so I praise the book for capturing their interest and hopefully helping them start a lifelong love of reading.

For this book my rating is 5 stars.
I really love this book because it could be a reality one
day.
I would recommend this book to boys only because some girls might be grossed out about some of the story
