Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The critics are CRAZY about UNDERPANTS!

"A triumph of irreverence." --NEWSWEEK

"Call Pilkey . . . the savior of the 'reluctant reader.' " --USA TODAY

"For every downtrodden fun-seeking kid who never wanted to read a book." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Subversively hilarious." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Celebrates the triumph of the good-hearted." --The Educational Book and Media Association

"It'll make kids laugh until soda comes out of their noses." --BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS

Kirkus Reviews
Zipping back and forth in time atop outsized robo–bell bottoms, mad inventor Tippy Tinkletrousers (aka Professor Poopypants) legs his way to center stage in this slightly less-labored continuation of episode 9. The action commences after a rambling recap and a warning not to laugh or smile on pain of being forced to read Sarah Plain and Tall. Pilkey first sends his peevish protagonist back a short while to save the Earth (destroyed in the previous episode), then on to various prehistoric eras in pursuit of George, Harold and the Captain. It's all pretty much an excuse for many butt jokes, dashes of off-color humor ("Tippy pressed the button on his Freezy-Beam 4000, causing it to rise from the depths of his Robo-Pants"), a lengthy wordless comic and two tussles in "Flip-o-rama." Still, the chase kicks off an ice age, the extinction of the dinosaurs and the Big Bang (here the Big "Ka-Bloosh!"). It ends with a harrowing glimpse of what George and Harold would become if they decided to go straight. The author also chucks in a poopy-doo-doo song with musical notation (credited to Albert P. Einstein) and plenty of ink-and-wash cartoon illustrations to crank up the ongoing frenzy. Series fans, at least, will take this outing (and clear evidence of more to come) in stride. (Fantasy. 10-12)

    This book was so funny I recommend it for anyone who has a strong stomach. But I would like to make a big note this is part 2 of Captain
    Underpants and the terrifying turn of Tippy Tinkle trousers. It's better to start off at book of the series to understand everything better.
    (I recommended it below. It's the blue book.) I also recommend reading his Super diary baby series and his Ook and Gluk series.  I
    hope my review helped you bye! ^_^

    The vocabulary is challenging for this age group but the illustrations help tremendously. There are people who complain about the series containing potty humor, pranks, etc., There really isn't much potty humor in this book - if any.  The kids get themselves into trouble unintentionally and actually try to help their principal. It's more about good winning over evil. I think adults need to actually read the book instead of skimming the pages in order to understand the underlying theme. It's pure fun and it makes kids look forward to reading.

    Get these for your kids and try to not roll your eyes.

    This series is the only thing that makes my grandson want to read. The stories may be silly but they've been a great tool for improving his reading skills.

    A highly enjoyable read

    The latest installment of Captain Underpants delivers laugh after laugh. I read it aloud to my four and six year old, and it was another memorable, fun reading experience. In this book, the vocabulary is rich and sophisticated. The plot is very convoluted--which adds to the humor, but it does get a bit bogged down at times. My kids love Captain Underpants. I love that they enjoy reading and listening to stories which this entire series inspires. Thank you, Mr. Pilkey!
