{Synopsis} – Pilkey plays with words and pictures, providing great entertainment. The story is immediately engaging—two fourth-grade boys who write comic books and love to pull pranks find themselves in big trouble. Mean Mr. Krupp, their principal, videotapes George and Harold setting up their stunts and threatens to expose them. The boys’ luck changes when they send for a 3-D Hypno-Ring and hypnotize Krupp, turning him into Captain Underpants, their own superhero creation. Later, Pilkey includes several pages of flip-o-ramas that animate the action. The simple black-and-white illustrations on every page furnish comic-strip appeal. The cover features Captain Underpants, resplendent in white briefs, on top of a tall building. This book will fly off the shelves.

{My thoughts} – George and Harold are regular goof balls at school. They enjoy pulling pranks and causing issues for those around them. They also spend a lot of their free time creating and distributing comic books called The Advenrures of Captain Underpants.

I’m this book they pulled a massive prank that took place during a football game. They thought they’d gotten away with it free and clear until their principal called them into his office. Once there he showed them a video tape of them being caught red handed!

The boys were forced to meet the principals demands. They were forced to allow themselves to be blackmailed by their principal. Their principal decided that he’d make a list of demands he wanted the boys to do. They more or less became his slaves.

After a few days the boys found a solution to their problem. If your interested in learning more about what they did, what their solution was and how they’d chose to handle their situation – you should totally read this book!

I found it to be a rather short but fast read and I greatly enjoyed it. I look forward to reading more books in the series in the very near future!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
