Author: Dav Pilkey
Reading Date: May 1, 2017
Book Summary: Professor Pippy P. (Pee-Pee) Poopypants is a brilliant scientist, but his ridiculous name means no one takes his fantastic inventions seriously. And now he's on the rampage! He's armed with fiendish inventions Shrinky-Pig 2000 and the terrible Gerbil Jogger 2000. Can Captain Underpants stop him?
Book Review: Real Rating: 4.5
Harold and George are back once again alongside Captain Underpants!
In this book, we find Professor P. Poopypants in Swissland (the country where everyone has a really hilarious name) and he has discovered the answer to both the world's trash and food problems. He decides to go to America to show off his invention but everyone just laughs at his name.
Over at Jerome Horwitz Elementary School, Mr. Fyde has decided that it is time to retire because he keeps hearing things that are causing him to question his sanity. This leaves open the position of Science teacher. Professor Poopypants takes up the job only to find that the children laugh at his name. He decides the best course is revenge and shrinks the school down. With the school at his mercy, he starts to make them change their names into something funny.
Of course, Captain Underpants with the help of his two sidekicks (can we even call them his sidekicks?), Harold and George, defeat the Professor.
This series only seems to get better and better with each book. I haven't found one yet that I have not liked. I found it hilarious when they had to change their names to please Professor Poopypants. Mr. Krupps became Lumpy Pottybiscuits while George and Harold become Fluffy and Cheeseball.
These books are funny and the illustrations are fun to look at as you read the book. If you are trying to get a child to read or know someone who is starting to read, these books would be a great addition to the collection.
