You know, I almost don’t want to admit it, but I enjoyed Captain Underpants. Not to the point that I feel like I need to read another one, but certainly more than I expected. George and Harold are two bright yet… precocious young men who write their own comic books about a character they call Captain Underpants. Due to some accident that occurs in the first Captain Underpants book, their principal is occasionally hypnotized to believe he is Captain Underpants, during which time he sheds his clot ...more

Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets opens with a comic strip giving a premise of the book- telling the true story of how they hypnotized their principal. Two boys, Harold and George transform their principal into Captain Underpants whenever they snap their fingers. To stay out of trouble, the boys receive detention but instead find themselves in a world of trouble. They stumble on a super copier that breathes life into 2-D illustrations. Harold and Greg copied their newest c ...more

Parents who aren't already on the Captain Underpants bandwagon are missing out. These books are fun, funny and most of all they get kids engaged with real books, not just game screens.

Harold and George are best friends and a pair of truly mischievous kids. In the first book they kinda sorta accidentally brainwashed their mean principal into becoming Captain Underpants, the comic superhero they created. In this book Principal Krupp (Captain Underpants' alter ego) is holding the second annual In

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
This is another hilarious book in the Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey. We really liked the first book and I'm not sure why we waited so long to read the next one. Our girls were howling with laughter and insisted that I read another chapter and another chapter until we finished the whole book in one reading (it's a quick read, but they still were up a little later than I'd like!) The humor is quite juvenile and the storyline is very predictable, but we all really liked it. They especiall ...more

So far, my favorite in the series. Harold and George go to the detention room. Mr Krupp their principal tells them to write the sentence "I will never do anything which angers my handsome and charming principal, Mr Krupp, ever, ever again." Once they finished writing the sentences, they had a lot of time to write a new comic to sell at the playground. Mr Krupp said if they left the detention room, they would be suspended. But George and Harold snuck out and tried to make copies of their book wit ...more

With the second book in the series, Pilkey picks up steam and presents a totally hilarious story. Following the same formula as the first book, this one ups the fun factor with a couple of comic sections and two Flip-o-ramas. Funnily enough toilet humour is limited to the presence of toilets and there were laugh out loud moments even for me! Book one was just OK however with the second outing for Captain Underpants Pilkey doesn't hold back and we get to see that he's fully capable of: making kid ...more

Ever since The Super Diaper Baby 2 book I received from class and introduced to my boys, they are crazy mad over Dav Pilkey and Captain Underpants! This is a comic-like chapter book written by Harold and George, 2 students. They have turned their principal into Captain Underpants by using the Patsy 2000, a copying machine that turns pictures into real life people/objects. The principal must save the day when the toilets come to life and take over the school and town. This is such a silly story b ...more

Back by popular demand, more night readings with flip-o-rama and tra-la-laaaa! Good times.

...and let's not forget the explanation of why boys need urinals and girls don't, and the Uranus joke that flew over youngest's head.

All boy humor, all the time.
Good times!

It may not be classic literature, but I sure do enjoy the time youngest and I spend together. He would probably tell you that his Mama really gets into the characters, too. Thankfully, no recording devices are around. I'm turning out to b

I've heard of this series for so long, but this is actually the first time I've read a Captain Underpants story. The opportunity cropped up while I was waiting around in Walmart and it was right there in front of me - I couldn't resist! Now, I can officially say I know what all the fuss is about because it's pretty awesome! Sure, the humor is potty-oriented, but is truly funny. I love that it's presented as a comics series by two imaginative friends and how their comic misadventures spill over i ...more
Amy
Decidedly less funny than the first Captain Underpants book. I'm not expecting high humor, here, but the kids didn't even really laugh at this one. Although they did engage in a lively debate about why toilets would even need to wear underwear. Who knows, maybe they're budding debate club members. Honestly, do our politicians even have debates much above this level?

Jayden Olsen
George and Harold are usually responsible kids... whenever anything bad happens, George and Harold are usually responsible!
And it looks like they're up to their old tricks again! First, they ruined the school's science fair with a series of silly pranks. Then, they accidentally created an army of evil, vicious, talking toilets, intent on taking over the world. Who will stop the carnivorous commodes?!!!? This looks like a job for Captain Underpants!
Sam Cooper
Captain underpants and the attack of the talking toilets is the second novel in Dav Pilkey’s captain underpants series. Once again the buys George and Harold find themselves in trouble at Jerome Horowitz Elementary School. In this adventure the school is hosting their annual invention convention, or more simply known to most as a science fair. A new character is introduced in Melvin Sneedly, who is renown as the school’s brainiac and tattletale. Melvin brilliantly invents a machine that can turn ...more

If I was in second or third grade, I'd probably give this a 5. It definitely is not written for 24 year old librarians, but Dav Pilkey's book is awesomely clever and hilarious, and many reluctant and non-reluctant readers will love this book (though they might have already read it).

I'm sure there are those who will object to the subject of toilets/toilet humor etc. In this case, I'm not one of them.

Harold and George are being punished again, and they draw some comics to pass the time. When they make copies of their "Talking Toilets" comics and don't realize the copy machine they used is actually an invention that brings copies to life, they accidentally unleash a plague of giant talking toilets onto the school! Good thing there's a superhero around--Mr. Krupp can be turned into Captain Underpants with the snap of some fingers.

It's great the way these books mix in some stronger vocabulary w

The front page says it - another epic novel by Dav Pilkey.

Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets is actually better then it's prequel, which is the epic novel by Dav Pilkey - The Adventures of Captain Underpants. The book is about the four graders George and Harold and their principal, who after the previous book can turn into Captain Underpants. The boys make a mess which summons talking toilets and also Turbo Toilet 2000.

The book is very funny and also has two Flip-o-ramas. T

Well i liked this book. It is really silly. They battle the toliets in their school by throwing food at them, when ever you snap your fingers he turns into capitan underpants and saves the day. The main charecters names are George and Harald . I liked this book because it is really funny.
Michelle
Say I told you there was an engaging, high-interest book for ages 5-10 that also used complex vocabulary, exquisite structure, and taught literary devices (foreshadowing, flashback, alliteration and characterization, to start?) Would you read it? Your kid already has. Captain Underpants, the bane of many old fogies who judge it by its title, turns out to be not only clever but also quite literary. I have really enjoyed reading this book because of its classic structure and vocabulary level; my s ...more

This book is definitely for mischievous children. As many people know, this book is famous (or infamous) for its toilet humor. However, I kind of enjoyed this book.
This book was interesting, but NOT because of the toilet humor in it, but because of the ingenuity of George & Harold. First, they messed up the Invention Convention, used cafeteria food to kill the army of talking toilets, then used the copy machine they used to (accidentally) wreak havoc for creating the general's enemy, after C

My son found this book from my middle school days and we recently read it together. Brought back good memories. I bought it during a school book sale back then and it actually inspired me to draw my own comics because the main characters did and even had photos of their comics which helped give me some ideas. The main characters are pretty mischievous and funny. I really enjoyed the cheesy animation sections where you can flip a page back and forth and see a rudimentary animation sequence. I mad ...more

This is another one I read with my son. He LOVES it. He was giggling all through the book. I'm not so sure I'm a big fan of the 'captain underpants'. It was fun laughing with my boy though.

I chose this book because it looked funny. I liked how it looks like a cartoon. I also like how creative the author was when he made the book.
They did not tell the setting that much. They should explain the setting more because as far as I know they were at school the whole book pretty much.
I liked all the characters. Overall I like the character Harold. I like him because he is funny and is a prankster. My least favorite character was Malvin because he lied and told on them.
I liked this boo
