Teacher's Grade: A+

In my dozen years of teaching 2nd grade, there has never been a better book for motivating reluctant boy readers to read than this one. Pilkey's humorous story and illustrations compel the reluctant readers to keep going, and turn the page to see what happens next. The story is delightfully zany and full of humor that is geared for kids. The great thing about Pilkey's writing is that there's also humor geared toward adults that the kids won't have any idea is there! This is terrific to read-aloud to kids, or to have them read in small-group reading settings. A winner!

A pretty good book

This was a pretty good book.This book is mainly about the first time Captain Underpants was brought to life.Mr.krupp was hypnotized by George and Harold.What I liked about this book is the part when Captain Underpants shot the bad guy with his underpants.The part I did not realy like was the way Mr.krupp turns to Captain Underpants.

the Amazing Flip-O-Rama...

I laughed aloud at the "Amazing Flip-O_Rama" pages. For those of you who don't know, "Flip-O-Rama" is "the cheesy animation technique that lets you animate the action yourself". Don't forget to add your own sound effects. In fact, you'll be laughing so hard you might have trouble with the sound effects, but who cares! This is THE book if you have kids who aren't really into reading. Everybody who sees it at my work (I work in a library) has to pick it up and look at it--and before they know it, they are laughing out loud. Read the others too (read the fourth one, about Evil Professor Poopypants, and you'll be changing your name!).


My son is a typical 8 year old boy. Passing gas is the hit of his life. Up with recess! Down with studies! How can you get through to a kid like this? Let alone get him to want to read?ANSWER: Buy and read THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS!!!!! Just with that name and the cover picture alone, I knew he would be interested. But I never expected him to read it COVER TO COVER, BY HIMSELF, THREE TIMES, IN THE FIRST SITTING!!!!I took this book with me to my son's gymnastics team practice to praise it up and down to the parents of the boys on his team (quite a few were reluctant readers too). Some parents raised an eyebrow, but as the book made the rounds, and even the toughest to please kid shouted, "GET ME THIS BOOK!!" all the parents were convinced.My son is now an excellent reader who has moved on to great books, but he returns to Captain Underpants regularly, and I still hear him giggling to his friends, "HAVE I GOT A BOOK FOR YOU!!"

This book is awesome and incredibly funny

I just finished reading this to my 3 sons, ages 4, 6, and 8 and the four of us couldn't stop laughing. It's a wonderfully silly story. Even the flip pages were really well done. (I expected them to be lame.) As soon as the boys heard that there was another adventure of Captain Underpants on the way, I was entreated to get it. Definitely. I bought this book because the title was different and because we've read all of the Dragon books and Hallo-weiner and loved them all. We were NOT disappointed.
