My sons really do think Captain Underpants is the funniest thing EVER - it's been particularly good for my youngest, who started off as a bit of a reluctant reader, but has really got into reading, thanks to these books. Be aware, they are odd, somewhat banal, but seem to appeal very much to their target audience! The pictures are also good fun.
Another fun story of adventure for Harold, George and Captain Underpants. This time things stay closer to home and the kids accidentally turn Ms. Ribble into the Wicked Wedgie Woman. Great story with lots of laughs, references to past books reminding us of Captain Underpants past exploits. Underpants also learns of his background story and a hidden talent he didn't know he had. What was surprising about this book is that Pilkey manages to bring character development to the table and these unassuming books hold a lot more than we think they do. Ms. Ribble is about to retire, her nastiness is examined, she and Mr. Krupp almost get married. But as Wedgie Woman, Ribble is even worse than she was as her own self. When George and Harold finally get Ms. Ribble back to herself again, they make a minor personality change and the book ends with an entirely new character for Ms. Ribble. Will she stay this way? Will the boys finally have a friend inside the school? I'm actually quite interested to see what happens in the next book.
like all captain underpants books this one was very funny, lots of adventure and completely mad.there were lots of pranks from george beard and harold hutchins and the wicked wedgie woman was superbly silly, spraying starch on captain underpants pants was just hilarious! I laughed all the way through reading it and can't wait for another captain underpants books.

My grandson, recently turned eight, tells me that the Captain Underpants books are great and are now his favourite, superseding Dirty Bertie, Tom Gates, Billy Bonkers, et al. Only difficulty from my point of view is that, every time I buy him a new one, he grabs it and dashes through it in one or two sittings - costing me a fortune to keep him supplied with reading material.
my son totally loves these books and now has the whole set...they are hilarious :))I never really 'got it' til i read a couple and now i understand why the kids love them...witty.. imaginative..engaging...fun! and written in such a way that you input some of your own imagination to really make them work. A BIG HIT!!!!
My son loves all the Captain Underpants books and when he gets a new one he disappears into his room and pretty much doesn't come out until he's read it cover to cover. Personally toilet humour isn't my thing but then I'm not a 7yr old boy :-) .
