Full of silly humour. Seems to appeal equally to boys and girls. The blocks of text are short, and every page has b/w illustrations to make the children laugh. Some of it is in comic format. An excellent book to encourage reluctant readers.

I was pleasantly surprised. Judging by the covers of these books, I wrote them off as overly juvenile, badly written, stupid wastes of time with irritating titles. Instead, I found a surprisingly smart story that reminded me a little of Calvin and Hobbes and a little of Dennis the Mennis, with a lot of gross humor. As far as I'm concerned, I won't rush out and read every one, but I also wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to the right reader.

We bought this book.

The last Pilkey book we read was the disgustingly over-the-top Super Diaper Baby. Now back to the core series we found the gross out factor is destined to remain high.

In this book Harold and George, our heroes, teach their classmates a prank called "Squishies" which will have parents checking the toilet before sitting down for weeks. Their classmate Melvin Sneedly tries to show off an invention that combines two things (like a bionic robot and a hamster). Despite being sma...more

This is another hilarious book in the Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey. Our girls really like these books and insist on reading them independently (so I don't have the excuse that I read the book with them, but I enjoyed reading it, too!) The humor is quite juvenile and the storyline is very predictable, but we all really liked it. Our girls especially like the Flip-O-Rama pages and often argue over who gets to read the book first.

All in all, I find these stories to be very entertaining...more

My 6 year old son and I have read this and other Captain Underpants books and I just have to say, speaking about all of the books, that my son thinks they are hysterically funny. They not only inspire him to be excited about reading and books but also to write: he has made his own 'Captain Underpants' comics, using cues from the books, copying both words and pictures. That kind of excitement about learning, reading, writing, that intrinsic push to create and copy, makes these books invaluable an...more

Captain underpants and the big, bad battle of the bionic booger boy, part 1: the night of the nasty nostril nuggest is the first of the two part would be conclusion of the excellent captain underpants series. I say would be, because every couple years Dac Pilkey decides he’s not finished with the captain underpants series. Having not read some the newer sequels it is unfair for me to comment on the validity of the newer books. The first part of this adventure describes the class brainiac, Melvin...more

This book definitely lacks literary merit, and it used language that I needed to change when reading it to my seven-year-old (i.e. "heck"). It also used improper grammar.

That being said, my son enjoyed it, laughing out loud many times. I didn't "hate" reading it, but it was difficult to give time to such fluff.

Harold and George are good kids, but they do like their pranks. When a ketchup-on-a-toilet-seat prank angers their nerdy classmate, Melvin, he decides he's got to use his smarts to turn himself into a giant bionic boy so he can have the last laugh. But unfortunately for him, he sneezes at the wrong time and becomes the Bionic Booger Boy--a huge robotic snot monster. And furthermore, he's ANGRY! Looks like a job for Captain Underpants!

It's the usual gross-out with unusually sophisticated vocabula...more

The book that I choose is Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy Part 1: ¨The night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets¨. The author of this book is Dav Pilkey. The genre is fiction. I choose this book because is funny, is about action, and it has flip-o-rama. There are 5 main characters: George and Harold, Melvin, Mr. Krupp and Captain Underpants. George and Harold are very creative and like to do comic books in there tree house, Melvin is a silly and nerd boy that thinks...more

Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy is the seventh novel in the Captain Underpants series written by Dav Pilkey. This is one of the many novels where Captain Underpants encounters a problem and at the end of the day remains a hero. This book taps into the minds of kids and provides good, solid fun. The combination of silly characters and a light story line makes for a good read for young children. The text is big, bold, and cartoon like and is surrounded by pictur...more

In this particular book of the series of Captain Underpants, George and Harold are faced with a fellow classmate named Melvin. Melvin is sick and tired of being constantly picked on by everyone he goes to school with and is sick of everyone bowing down to George and Harold. So, Melvin plans his revenge by using his greatest weapon, his brain.
I would have to consider this text to be both science fiction and modern fantasy. Certain aspects of the text are possible, such as the fact that Melvin cre...more

Been a long time since I read the last book in this series. Figure finish the series I had started but stopped reading for some reason. Captain Underpants is one of them. I'll admit, the flip pages were kind of fun. Miss flip books. The recap was nice, since I kind of forgot what happened in the series thus far. Anyway, at times this was a little gross. But at least you get a warning for those chapters, so thank you for that. Though the title should of been a giveaway as to what I'll expect from...more

I've heard of Captain Underpants for a number of years, and interestingly never read one till my girl friend, who is doing some tutoring on reading, got this for her student. Well, I HAD to read it, just to see what all the fuss was about. Seems it was worth the wait! Two elementary school pals, George and Harold, somehow turn the always-angry Mr. Krupp, the school Principal, into crime-fighting Captain Underpants by ...well, I'll let you read that stuff. In this adventure, the class nasty, Melv...more

Okay, now that we're onto our 6th Underpants book, I'm starting to get a little selective and I need some new humor, while still appreciating all the Captain U standards & classics. But I guess I'm more of a poop girl than a booger one (never thought those words would cross a review of mine!). But seriously, I have a line. And I just get a little queased at reading about a bionic booger boy who is a "snot-spewing", "mucus-coated", "boogery behmoth." Case in point: "As the huge booger chunks...more

Recommends it for: fans of the series and reluctant boy readers
I'll start off by saying this was my least favourite of all the Captain Underpants books so far. I just didn't find it funny and actually felt sorry for the recurring character who goes a little crazy and turns into the bad guy in this episode. I don't have much to say. Kid's will probably go along for the ride easily enough. What I did like was that Ms. Ribble did indeed keep her new personality as happened in the last book and that when reading these books in order we do find development, both...more

Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy, Part 1: The Night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets is awesome because Captain Underpants is on another adventure.
Can Captain Underpants beat the Bionic Booger Boy?

Recommends it for: C.U. fans who have been waiting for Melvin Sneedly to get clobbered
I'm a huge Captain Underpants fan. I think they're great, but I did have one complaint; this book actually did kinda gross me out. I'm certain that my wife wouldn't be able to make it through this book without gagging. Let's just say that it gets pretty darn detailed with its booger-related humor. Otherwise, a fantastic installment in the epic saga of Captain Underpants.

captain underpants and the big bad battle of the bionic booger boy part 1 is about how Harold Hutchins and Goerge Beard make fun of a all tattle telling 4th grade nerd named Melvin Sneedly. melvin finds out about people making fun of him because harold and georege and harold made fun of him in a home made comic book and everybody was reading it while laughing and pointing at him. Tbhen he snatched a comic from from a kindergartner that was looking at a comic. then melvin left to go readthe comic...more

This book is not merely gross, but absolutely grotesque. But K2, age 6, mellifluously narrates the monster's adventures to me, including the part when its hand comes off on the door, "leaving a trail of moist excretion" (he did have to ask what "excretion" meant).
My older child learned to read the same way -- an obsession with a book series that I didn't enjoy and preferred not to read -- but in her case it was the Magic Tree House books, which I found deadly dull, although she loved them. Capt....more

These books are more literary than you might think. There's definitely gross humor, but there's also many English devices used, such as alliteration. Pilkey doesn't dumb down the vocabulary either. My 7 and 10yo boys have enjoyed the series.

THis one made us a bit queasy, FYI if lots of mucus talk grosses you out - this one will do it.

The grossest one yet. My four-year-old loved it.

My three sons have all loved reading these Captain Underpants books. Even my husband laughed when he read the to the kids. I remember my grandmother Barbara, who used to be a school teacher, complaining about these 'disgusting books for kids'. I gave my kids that look that communicates "Say NOTHING!" I'm sure it's completely unacceptable for many of her generation & I respect her feelings.

What can I say? We appreciate potty humor at our house. These books made my boys laugh & want to rea...more

Recommends it for: those who love smart snot jokes and potty humor
Okay, I'm mostly adding this review for my son. But if you can stand all the snot jokes and potty humor, these books are actually pretty amusing and sometimes even thought provoking. Can George and Harold be held accountable for teaching the entire 4th grade how to make "squishies?" Even if they didn't actually make any themselves? No, this is not the entire plot line, just one of its tasty nuggets to be chewed over by a thoughtful 6-year-old, or even, perhaps, his 33 year old dad. What is a squ...more
