Book Review: Real Rating: 4.5
George and Harold are back.
And so is Captain Underpants.
Our story begins with there being an upcoming Invention fair at the school. Both Harold and George were in it last year when they invented a glue that sticks people to their chair. This, however, did not go well with the teachers and students and it certainly did not go well with Mr. Krupp. In fact, this year's invention competition finds both Harold and George banned from it.
All this thanks to Mr. Krupp.
But George and Harold are determined to enter and win the grand prize - one day of being Principal of the school. They sneak into the place where all the inventions are at but Melvin is there. Melvin shows them his invention - the PATSY 2000. This invention has the ability to take an image and bring it to life. Melvin demostrates this when he places an image of a mouse in the machine and the a mouse runs out. Harold and George are unimpressed and make Melvin promise not tell on them. Unfortunately this comes back to bit them when everyone's inventions fail and Melvin tells on them.
This, of course, delights, Mr. Krupps, who has been looking for reason to now put them in permanent detention.
But Harold and George invent a quick way to fill those chalk boards and work on their comic book at the same time but they need to print the book before the morning. They know they are not suppose to leave, but they do this anyways and head out to the copy machine. The teachers are in there so they decide to use Melvin's invention.
And that is where the fun begins!
This one was hilarious! I found myself laughing out loud this evening while I was waiting for my friend to get off work. Harold and George never seem to learn any lesson from the last time and unfortunately Mr. Krupp being Captain Underpants is not helping anything for the boys.
I love how Mr. Krupps is still unaware that he is the underwear hero and that his alter ego is just funny as hell. He keeps those boys on their toes and they have no idea when or where he is going to appear at the snap of a finger.
This book is definitely something I think parents should read with their kids. It would keep the entire family laughing at the antics the two boys are getting into. It is well worth it.
