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 ...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 ...more
Captain Underpants is an amazing childrens' series. I wish I would've read them when I was little. I regret that I haven't. But now I am, and I'm having a good time!
"Captain Underpants" is an enjoyable and funny read. I like the pictures too. I find it impressive that the author writes and draws. Usually childrens' authors hire illustrators, but not this one. I'm looking forward to reading more of Dav Pilke's books.
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?

My first book for the Banned Books Week (25-9 to 1-10). I guess most of you can imagine why this one would be banned.

It was a fun book though, and I laughed a lot. I will definitely see if I can find the other books in this series as well, I was already surprised to find this one at Library #3 (then again they have a bigger English collection than my other libraries).

I am sure a lot of people won't like the humour in this one (toilet humour, plus over-the-top evil teachers/principal), but I qu

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

Late last year, my seven year old son told me that he didn't like reading. This floored me a little as he is a really good little reader, but apparently he reads what he is told to at school and knows the words he sees on the page, but doesn't really enjoy it (and after listening to the school readers with him each week, I am not overly surprised).

Anyway, I was told by a local librarian that these are books that young boys love. At just under 150 pages, the length is perfect. We read a few chapt

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 ...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 ...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

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.

one day the was 2 kids named George and Harold they hypnotized the mean principle to be captain underpants when some snaps there finger so when the evil toilets attacked a woman snapped her fingers and then the principle turned into captain underpants then the toilets ate 3 teachers and then captain underpants destroyed the toilets

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!

A wonderful read from my childhood, one I’d certainly suggest for other youngsters. Whilst it is not my all-time favourite childhood read I can still recall all the details of this one meaning it certainly left a lasting impression upon my young mind.

And isn’t that what we want with children’s books, for them to leave a positive lasting impression?

This book completes the requirement for reading a book I haven't read since elementary school, a book I can finish in one day, a book that has a sequel, and a graphic novel. There are interesting and very creative ideas in this book. Pilkey writes," In fact they accidently almost destroyed the whole planet with an army of evil vicious talking toilets!"

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.

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.
