Well, George and Harold--surprise, surprise--are at it again. The cranky lunch ladies quit after George and Harold fool them into baking super-volcanic krispy kupcakes that flood the school with gigantic green globs o' goo. Mr. Krupp finds replacements and fast, but he unwittingly hires the tentacled alien trio of Zorx, Klax, and Jennifer in disguise! Will they turn everyone in school into evil zombie nerds? Can George and Harold save the world before it's too late? All seems lost until the diabolical Zorx snaps his... um, tentacles in front of Mr. Krupp, and the power of wedgies comes to the rescue once again.
Captain Underpants's third outing is better than ever, with patented Flip-o-Rama animation and wacky bonus comics like "Captain Underpants--Wedgie Wars" and "Captain Underpants and the Night of the Living Lunch Ladies." (Ages 8 to 12) --Paul Hughes

'Captain Underpants' lives to see another day ORFORDVILLE, Wis. - Dav Pilkey's book, Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies From Outer Space (and the Subsequent Assault of Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds), came under scrutiny after a student's parents asked that it be reviewed. The story's main characters ridicule and disobey their school principal, bury some dead lunch ladies by the school and write comic books riddled with misspellings, among other things. The Parkview School District committee voted 5-0 to keep the book in the school's library. The district's curriculum director said children probably would be best served if someone read or discussed the book with them to point out misspellings and intolerance issues.
I say hooray for Dav Pilkey and thank him for being a boost to my son's interest in reading! Reading is only fun when you enjoy the content and I definitely enjoy having Dav's books for my son and myself.
Captain U's true identity is that of an elementary school principal. But after being hypnotized by unruly fourth graders George and Harold, he acquires his superhero persona. Captain Underpants is probably the silliest spoof superhero yet; he runs around wearing no more than his underpants (hence the name) and a cape. In this installment, the good captain faces a trio of devious extraterrestrial fiends.
Much like the popular TV show "The Simpsons," this book mercilessly satirizes school and authority figures. Pilkey includes many clever touches, such as the incorporation of comic books allegedly written by George and Harold, as well as a "Flip-o-Rama" gimmick by which the reader can manually animate key action sequences. Overall, a lot of fun.

These books look sort of busy and inane, and, well, I guess they are. But then I realized that the grandsons are, well, busy and inane, and I get it why they love them. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Pop Bop
