Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Hilarious Half-Dressed Hero Reveals All!

Tra-la-laaa! He's a caped crusader who dresses in jockey shorts. He battles evil with "Wedgie Power"—and always wins! He's Captain Underpants—a sensational superhero and the star of four terrific books. In his latest adventure, Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants, the kooky crime fighter takes on Professor Pippy P. Poopypants, a mad scientist who shrinks Jerome Horwitz Elementary School—and is determined to take over the world. Jamie Levine of barnesandnoble.com was fortunate enough to talk to the heroic Captain Underpants about his amazing life.

Barnes & Noble.com: Did you always want to be a superhero—or did you just "fall into" this job?

Captain Underpants: I've fallen into a lot of things in my life, but this job was not one of them. I was born to wear underwear and fight crime!

B&N.com: Did you have to undergo any special training to be a superhero?

CU: All you need to be a superhero is a heart that is pure, a mind that is strong, and underwear that is fresh!

B&N.com: You're always smiling! Don't you ever get irritated at George and Harold for causing so much trouble?

CU: No, those two boys have been a real help to me. I think every superhero needs a good sidekick. You know, Batman has Robin, Superboy has that flying dog thingy with the cape, and I have George and Harold. The only thing is that "George" and "Harold" don't sound like good names for superhero sidekicks. I've tried to talk them into "Fleegle" and "Buttercup," but, well, they're stuck in their ways, I guess.

B&N.com: How has all the publicity you've received from starring in Dav Pilkey's books changed your life?

CU: Well, I get recognized all the time. In the old days, when people saw me coming they often ignored me (or screamed). Now, they know my name and ask for autographs. They've always got requests, too, like, "Will you give my husband a wedgie?" It's great fun!

B&N.com: Do you have any dreams of starring in movies like some of your fellow superheroes have?

CU: Maybe.... I'm not sure who could play my part, though. Obviously, Leonardo DiCaprio is the first actor to come to mind (the physical resemblance astounds even me!), but I'm not sure he'd be up to the stunt work.

B&N.com: Who's your favorite superhero?

CU: Me! If I've learned anything from Whitney Houston, it's that "learning to love yourself is the greatest..." uh, something something something....

B&N.com: What do you like to do in your spare time (when you're not fighting crime)?

CU: A crime fighter's job is never finished! But on my breaks, I enjoy swimming and bowling (often at the same time, which really annoys the guys down at the bowling alley).

B&N.com: Don't you get cold running around in just your underwear?

CU: Nope. Wedgie Power keeps me warm!

B&N.com: Do you have any advice for kids who would like to join in your fight for "Truth, Justice, and all that is Pre-Shrunk and Cottony"?

CU: Yes. See my answer to your second question.

B&N.com: Well, thank you, Captain Underpants. I know you have plenty of bad guys to catch and millions of other things to do, so I'll keep this brief...er...short and just say that it's been a pleasure meeting you—and that you're an inspiration to everybody who wears underpants!

Children's Literature
George and Harold like to play pranks. It livens things up at school. Unfortunately, the jokes sometimes get them into a lot of trouble. When Professor P. Poopypants becomes the new science teacher, they almost cause the entire planet to be taken over by a mad scientist in a giant robot suit. Who will stop the perilous plot? Captain Underpants, the boys' principal who becomes a gigantic baby turned superhero at the snap of their finger. Zany humor and fun illustrations abound in this fourth adventure of Captain Underpants. Mad from everyone laughing at his silly name, Professor Poopypants uses his scientific inventions to shrink everyone, forcing them to change their names to be as silly as his. Funny, creative, and somewhat irreverent, you'll laugh out loud and have fun finding your new names as you flip through the action filled pages. If you are easily offended, you may want to pass on reading it with your child. 2000, Scholastic, Ages 7 to 10, $3.99. Reviewer: Dia L. Michels
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Pilkey again features the absurd faculty members of Jerome Horwitz Elementary School and introduces a new science teacher when troublemakers George and Harold drive Mr. Fyde into retirement. Professor Pippy P. Poopypants is a great, but frustrated scientist whom no one takes seriously because of his name. He is certain that the "sweet, innocent" children won't laugh at his unusual appellation. Needless to say, they do, and in so doing, incur a wrath that only Captain Underpants can tame. With its bathroom humor, madcap pranks, gross adventures, mini-comic strips, and flip-book pages, this rollicking laugh-out-loud cartoon story is certain to be a hit, especially with reluctant readers.-Sharon McNeil, Los Angeles County Office of Education Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

Pilkey, Dav. Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants. Feb. 2000. 160p. illus. Scholastic/Blue Sky, $16.95 (0-439-04997-0).
Gr. 3-5. You knew he'd be back. Yes, Captain Un- derpants 'aka Mr. Krupp, principal of the Jerome Horwitz Elementary School, has returned, as have his enablers, students Georgend Harold. The plot? Suffice it to say Underpants must combat a scientific genius named Professor Pippy P. Poopypants. Poopypants goes mad when the students at Horwitz laugh at his name. (When they find out his middle name is Pee-pee, they get downright hysterical, as will readers'no doubt.) Mixed in with the minimal story is Pilkey's comic book-style artwork; some of the pages even make a "cheesy" flip book to animate the action. Silly, gross-out fun for Captain's legion of fans. -Ilene Cooper

    more from this reviewer

    Fun series

    In the last book Mr. Krupp, the grumpy principal who students George and Harold accidentally hypnotized into believing he was a comic book superhero got real life super powers after tangling with a trio of evil aliens. Those powers are going to come in handy because in this book George, Harold and Captain Underpants are going to have to defeat a crazy scientist who's mad because everyone keeps making fun of his name.

    The Captain Underpants books are part comic, part story, all hilarious (and inappropriately so, as George and Harold point out, making fun of their own franchise, and meta-storytelling.) They're a series of fun books and increasingly George and Harold are shaping up to be real heroic good guys, capable sidekicks to Captain Underpants' outrageous, goofy goodness.

    Recommended for: 7- 12 yr olds

    My granddaughter who is 8 and is reading at 4th grade level is loving these Captain Underpants books. Her teacher recommended them as fun books for her. They are silly and fun to read and she can't wait to see what is happening next. Give the kids something they like and they will continue to love to read!!!

    Great Book to read... check it out!!!

    I am reading Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of professor Poopypants by Dav Pilkey. I think the book was pretty good. The main characters are George, Harold, Mr. Krupp, and Mr. Poopypants. I have never felt nor done anything George and Harold did. The thing I would change is that Mr. Krupp was nice to George and Harold.
    I would recommend this book because it is a very creative book. I really liked it, so if u get a chance, check it out. It's a really good and funny book.

    great captain underpants book

    Captain Underpants Sierra Miles Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poppy pants is written by Dav Pilkey. The main Characters are Professor Poppy pants, Captain Underpants, George, and Harold. Professor Poppy pants is a mad scientist who wants to take over the world. Captain Underpants saves the world. George is the planning one. Harold is the smart one. George and Harold have Super power juice, and their principal gets a hold of it, and drinks it all, And the he becomes Captain Underpants. So think if you ever get a hold of Super power juice. Don¿t bring it around your principal at all times. I think of it as an n action book I¿m kind of in to action, but not that much. So if you like action books this is your kind of book. The End

    student review- the book was really funny

    This book is great for children it increase there imagination. Also it is very funny and if your child has a problem with calling names this is probably not a good book for them. This about two kids that tick off a very smart professor and he creates a giant robot to avenge his anger and attacks the city. I liked this book because it is very funny and it also has pictures.

    Captain Underpants is a great book for anyone who doesn't like to read.

    My daughter didn't care for reading until her Aunt and Uncle from NY sent her her first Captain Underpants book. She read the book in 4 days. We argued (in a fun way) about who was going to read at night. I loved reading Captain Underpants to her but she insisted on reading it herself and by herself. I was completely amazed. I'm going this weekend to buy her a few more Captain Underpants books. I highly recommend this book to any reader, especially those who don't like to read.

Captain Underpants has his attention now...finally! I haven't read the book yet but my son has. And I have heard a chapter summary of it everyday until it he finish it!

Good Luck...I found the pot of BOOKS for my son!

    Captain Underwear Captures 3 Year Old

    I have now read all the Captain Underpants books to my Grandsons; one was just 3 when we started. He was absolutely enchanted!!! And I would always stop at the words: 'Captain Underpants' and he would say them. They loved Professor Poopypants the best and are using the charts and going around renaming everyone they know; I may be jailed soon for contributing to the deliquency of minors, but it sure is fun to see them laugh. It's also great to find books that really appeal to boys. Dav Pilkey knows what kids like and it's disgusting!!! (They love disgusting!)

    Great Book For Child Who Has Difficulty Staying Focused!

    My 11 year old son is not a great reader and will only read for 'fun' if a book keeps his interest. Well, this book made him laugh and want to continue reading to find out what was next. Also, the author has a great sense of humor. He is getting ready to read more.
