We bought this book.

The last Pilkey book we read was the disgustingly over-the-top Super Diaper Baby. Now back to the core series we found the gross out factor is destined to remain high.

In this book Harold and George, our heroes, teach their classmates a prank called "Squishies" which will have parents checking the toilet before sitting down for weeks. Their classmate Melvin Sneedly tries to show off an invention that combines two things (like a bionic robot and a hamster). Despite being smart Melvin is not a good kid and he reacts badly to his classmates being less interested in watching him yell at his hamster than trying out a prank.

Probably not the best of moves, Harold and George turn Melvin into a spoiled brat monster in one of their comics which pushes Melvin to show everyone how much cooler he is than George and Harold by turning himself into a bionic robot. Too bad Melvin has allergies and sneezes right before the combining.

Surprisingly Melvin, unlike the rest of Harold and George's victims, doesn't turn evil until he's assaulted by a tissue man on a school field trip. Then George, Harold and Captain Underpants have to defeat their grossest bad guy yet, and all during cold and flu season.

Despite what parents think, kids adore this series. It has the right combination of gross, funny and meat to it. And it does redeem itself by showing that you don't have to get straight As or always be right to be the good guy. It also pokes fun at itself and combines a subtle use of language with the subject matter which helps push middle grade reader boundaries.

I'd be surprised if libraries don't already have this series, but parents looking for books to encourage their kids to read for pleasure outside of school should definitely try this series. It's funny, gross, sometimes a little bit scary, but all in a safe way.

Contains: Gross jokes and illustrations

Recommended for: 9-12 yrs

    Gross

    Been a long time since I read the last book in this series. Figure finish the series I had started but stopped reading for some reason. Captain Underpants is one of them. I'll admit, the flip pages were kind of fun. Miss flip books. The recap was nice, since I kind of forgot what happened in the series thus far. Anyway, at times this was a little gross. But at least you get a warning for those chapters, so thank you for that. Though the title should of been a giveaway as to what I'll expect from this. Good addition to the series.

    Captain Underpants triumphs again, or does he?

    Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy Part 1: The Night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets By: Dav Pilkey. Overall I believe that this was a mediocre captain underpants novel. It is about a stuck-up, snobby, pampered child named Melvin sneedly. He is one of the smartest kids in the world but he doesnt use it for good. One day george and harold play a squishy trick on him and he vows to get them back. So one day he goes home and...and I can't tell you. Like usual there is a fight but this time something is diffferent. Very different. Like I said in the beggining I really didnt think the book was all that great. Theres the usual flip action pages (that are fun for all ages). Also in the beggining Harold and George make a comic. I find the comic quite funny. Although in my opinion the most infamous part was when the book didnt really end. It created a situation where you would have to buy the sequel to find out the ending. Thats just my opinion though, so if you want to contradict me, read it yourself.
