The sixth "epic novel" in Dav Pilkey's hugely popular series explains the awful truth about Captain Underpants (he is really the school principal), details "the night of the nasty nostril nuggets," offers up "the unnecessarily disgusting chapter," and even explains how "you can't have your cape and Edith, too."
George and Harold are "C" students (and bad spellers), but they are very good at "saving the entire planet from the nasty forces of unrelenting evil" and also at ketchup-toilet pranks. Unfortunately, they can't save Melvin Sneedly from getting paddled by his bionic hamster. But, frankly, they wouldn't want to, because besides being the school brainiac, Melvin is also a tattletale. When his robot-making hobby backfires horribly, Melvin transforms himself into the Bionic Booger Boy instead of a bionic superboy. Can Captain Underpants save everyone from this "greenish, glistening behemoth?"
Pilkey is the superhero of boy humor, stuffing his heavily illustrated books with comic-book inserts, "flip-o-rama" animation, and all the gross-out jokes an elementary-school kid could stomach. Fans will want to get their hands on Captain Underpants and the Big Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy Part 2: The Revenge of the Ridiculous Robo-Boogers as well. (Ages 8 and older) --Karin Snelson

A mishap involving a new-fangled machine and an ill-timed sneeze turn nerdy Melvin Sneedly into the gunky, slimy "Bionic Booger Boy." In the second volume, Melvin and Mr. Krupp (a.k.a. Captain Underpants) find themselves trapped in each other’s bodies. Those who enjoy gross-out humor (i.e., most boys) will probably be laughing too hard to notice the deficiencies in the rather shapeless plots.

Gr 2-4-Fourth-graders George and Harold are good at pranks involving ketchup on toilet seats; saving the planet from the "nasty forces of unrelenting evil"; and making fun of Melvin Sneedly, the school brainiac and tattletale. When his robot-making hobby backfires during a class demonstration, Melvin tries to transform himself into a bionic superboy to get back at the pair but ends up as Bionic Booger Boy instead. Chaos ensues after he accidentally doubles and triples in size. George and Harold call on Captain Underpants (the school principal), but he loses his powers when he is covered in saliva. When a bionic hamster hears the terrified cries of his two friends, he comes to the rescue. The typical Pilkey ending leaves the door open for a sequel, and the novel is filled with the familiar comic-book inserts, Flip-O-Rama animations, and black-and-white cartoon illustrations. Fans will love this installment, and the book would probably appeal to slow readers. Adults are likely to be turned off by the use of the words "idiot" and "dumb" to refer to children and by the graphic description of snot.

So far this is the grossest of them all however, a bit much for me, but it makes my son laugh out loud and keeps him interested in reading and drawing. I think it's more for 8 or 9 year olds so I am often telling my son what words mean, which is great because his vocabulary is expanding immensely.
It's good to read them in order but not mandatory. I think these books are an incredible way to get little boys interested in reading. Smartly written yet filled with great jokes and pranks.
