Overview


Move over, Dav Pilkey, it's George and Harold's turn to tell the tale of the all-new superhero who's faster than a speeding stroller and more powerful than diaper rash. Make way for Super Diaper Baby!

Oh, no! It looks like George and Harold are in trouble again. . . . As punishment, the boys have to write a 100-page report on "good citizenship," and they have been specifically ordered NOT to make another comic about Captain Underpants. So what do they do? They create an all-new superhero . . . Super Diaper Baby! Super Diaper Baby's archenemy, Deputy Dangerous, wants to steal his powers and take over the planet. Will the diaper-wearing dynamo defeat the deputy, or is the entire Earth doomed?

This new paper-over-board edition includes a 16-page behind-the-scenes bonus section!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for THE ADVENTURES OF SUPER DIAPER BABY
"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." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Children get a delicious thrill from reading forbidden and naughty things, and Pilkey has filled this niche for the emergent reader." --KIRKUSS

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. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Familiar faces and familiar themes reappear in Pilkey's newest addition to the Captain Underpants family. George Beard and Harold Hutchins, the merry pranksters of his wildly popular series, are back, this time as authors of a "graphic novel." Punished by their principal, Mr. Krupp, the boys are sentenced to write a 100-page essay on "Good Citizenship." Of course, that doesn't happen. The story of Super Diaper Baby is their not-so-contrite response to the punishment. There is plenty to be offended by in this truly "graphic" work. Adults and children who can spell well will surely be distracted and occasionally confused by the plethora of misspelled words and missing punctuation marks. The bad guy being turned into a giant "piece of poo" and many more visual and written references to human excrement will revolt grownups and embarrass some members of the intended audience. When Diaper Dog reassures the newly transformed Deputy Dangerous that it could be worse, "you could have been turned into diareah [sic]," most adults will consider closing the covers and turning to more serious fare. But most children get a delicious thrill from reading forbidden and naughty things, and Pilkey has filled this niche for the emergent reader. Silly puns abound. Scatological humor is the order of the day, crowned with a toilet-paper-wrapped Deputy Doo-Doo being delivered to, you guessed it, Uranus. Adults will want to use this book as a birdcage liner, and young readers with elementary senses of humor will revel in the humor and silliness. Some readers might feel encouraged to design their own comic books. More sophisticated readers will better appreciate the forbidden humor of Roald Dahl. (Fiction. 6-10)

This is the best book ever i love it. If you dont like it then you are just plain boring. No offense. If you have children then they will love this book.i belive children should have fun. Kids can go wild. If you are a kid who loves humor get this book. Kids 7-12 can read this ok. The name calling dosent bother me unless its a cuss word. Also the potty stuff like Wedgie Woman is ok. Its not inappropriate at all. Parents should see the humor. The comments of Dr.Seuss parodies are wrong. Its not that at all. Those who said they want to know if its good its good. Many people misjudge humor for dirtiness. Its not. Sometimes we just misjudge things. If you agree... rock on. If you dont then i dont know what else. So long story short Captain Underpants rocks. Please read this books for me. If i love them you should too. Dav Pikey your books rock.

Action! Adventure! Danger! A Flip-O-Rama in every chapter! The first graphic novel by George Beard and Harold Hutchins, the creators of the worldly famous Captain Underpants series, has it all! Beard and Hutchins are two amazing 4th graders at Jerome Horwitz Elementary School in Piqua, Ohio whose superheroes have saved the world 5 times over. Beard writes the stories and Hutchins draws the pictures. It contains 11 cool Flip-O-Ramas, where you flip two pages of the book quickly back and forth to simulate live animation (you have to add your own sound effects, however). Our adventure begins with a car speeding to the hospital with Mr. and Mrs. Hoskins about to give birth. Meanwhile, Deputy Dangerous and Danger Dog plot to take over the world. They open a fake "underware" laundrymat and lure Captain Underpants there so that they can steal his super powers with a "Super Power Taker-Awayer Ray 2000." Danger Dog drinks half the super potion, but the cops crash in before Deputy Dangerous can slurp down his share. Danger Dog uses his new "lazer eye powers" to burn a hole in the wall and flies away with Deputy on his back. Back at the hospital, the doctor gives the newborn baby boy the "spank of life". Baby flies out the window, lands on the villains being chased by the cops, and accidentally drinks the rest of the power juice. KA-POW! Super Diaper Baby is created! Read the rest of the book to find out how Deputy Dangerous plots his revenge with the Robo-Ant 2000, resulting in a surprising twist of events. Beard and Hutchins generously provide a "How 2 Draw" section in the back so readers can learn how to draw their own Super Diaper Baby, Diaper Dog, Deputy Doo-Doo, and Robo-Ant 2000. With poop jokes and plenty of playground humor, this graphic novel is obviously targeted for boys ages 7 - 10, yet girls and adults may get a kick out of it, too. Believe it or not, some people wanted Super Diaper Baby banned from the libraries and classrooms, objecting to the toilet humor and bad grammar. That's what makes the book so entertaining!

I read all these books when I was seven and I thought that they were cool. Then a year later i borrowed it from my brother and i could not believe how msny inipropriete thing there were in that inosent little book! I think that ages five to eight would enjoy it (and get on everybod's neves by running through the house screaming "Captain Underpants!" then burst out laughing). If you are older than that I think this book would just get on your nerves.
