Captain Underpants is so hilarious that my husband, my daughter and myself all sit down and read the books together. They are great books for a family laugh! We couldn't wait for the fourth book and read it immediately when it became available. Professor Poopypants is our favorite ... so far! We are so enamored of these little gems that we have invested in the hardback versions in order to add them to our permanent library of favorites!If your child is a reluctant reader, this series will unlock the door and open to them the magical world of reading.
I am six years old. I liked it because it's funny and George and Harold are 2 kids and at the beginning they're always changing this sign! The sign one time said "Pick your own roses," and George and Harold turned it to "Pick our noses!" There's something called flip-o-rama, which makes it look like a cartoon! You see, Captain Underpants in the book, he's usually a teacher, but if he snaps his finger he turns into Captain Underpants. He only wears underpants and a red curtain with black spots! I think you will like it. That's all for now, folks!
This is a great book with a touch of bathroom humor but just enough to make it funny. Check out all the rest too. These are great books to give to children for any occaision.
If possible this one is even sillier than the rest! I bought this series for my 7 year old daughter (who enjoys them) but my 2 1/2 year old son adores them! He runs around in his underwear and a red blanket shouting that he is "Captain Underpants". If you love to laugh aloud as you read to your children this is the series for you. For all grownups who were disciplinary challenges in school (and for all that secretly wanted to be) these books will bring back memories of what it was like to be in 4th grade. Get them all and enjoy!
My daughter and I love the Captain Underpants series, but Professor P.P. Poopypants is the funniest character yet! He keeps us howling with laughter! The names of the characters are funny enough, but the kids in the book are much smarter than the adults, sure to win the hearts of the young set. Maybe not great literature, but these books find my reluctant reader with her nose in a book.
I have a 7 year old who is a classic "reluctant reader" but who *begs* (along with his 5 year old brother) to read all 4 Captain Underpants books. An added benefit is the sheer joy of hearing your children belly-laugh over the silly antics of Harold and George :).
Picture this!, three 7 to 9 nine year old boys reading with a flash light and just roaring! Its a sleep over favorite now. My son is waiting axiously for #5 -- Come on Dave!
My two young boys LOVE the Captain Underpants series! These are the first chapter books that they have ever read, and my older son (who is dyslexic and to whom reading is a chore of the greatest magnitude) will never hesitate to pick up one of the Captain Underpants books and read it all the way through. Dav Pilkey really knows how to appeal to boys - the Ricky Ricotta book of his is great also, and we can't wait for the second one!
