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
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?

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

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

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!"

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

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?

I have never really been into captain underpants growing up because I always thought it was more of an action series, but I was wrong! I sat down for the first time and read a Captain Underpants book called The Attack of the Talking Toilets. While it still had a lot of action parts there was still a great storyline for any kind of reader to enjoy. This graphic novel starts out by two best friends putting a spell on their mean principal, they made this spell so that when the boys got in trouble t ...more

These are very, very silly, but appropriate for kids who like comics, oddball humor and a little grossness. 2nd-3rd grade boys, in fact. My seventh grader enjoys these books and I admit to finding them humorous.

Fair warning: The boys are not very nice in their pranks-- sort of a Weasley twins level of prank--, but mostly harmless. However, they do make fun of the most serious, smartest kid at the science fair as the school 'brainiac' (which is disconcerting considering the brilliance they put in

I am totally in love with children's/ YA books!!!! That is why I am glad I have young children who like to go the library! needless to say I decided to read this book from their pile.

This story is about Harold and George. They are wanting to enter the science fair because the winner will get to be principle for the day. Well Principle Krupp made a new rule stating they were not allowed to even attend the fair from what they did last year.

Harold and George decided to go to the gym and check out t

Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets in the second book in the Dav Pilkey’s series. The two jokesters, George and Harold, are up to their usual tricks and accidentally create an army of evil, talking toilets and they want to take over the world. It is up to Captain Underpants to save the day again. As a reader, I enjoyed this book because of the two main characters. They are always playing pranks with the other students and the teachers. It is always funny to see what they do

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

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!
