Book Summary: When the Incredible Robo-Plunger defeated the evil Turbo Toilet 2000, George and Harold thought their toilet troubles were over. Unfortunately, their porcelain problems were only beginning . . .

Just when you thought it was safe to flush . . .

The Turbo Toilet 2000 strikes back! The carnivorous commode known for devouring everything in its path has built up a real appetite . . . for REVENGE! Join Captain Underpants for another epic showdown of Wedgie Power vs. Potty Power as our tighty-whitey-wearing superhero GOES TO ELEVEN!
Book Review: Harold and George - err, I mean Melvin is back!

This time Melvin is learning that walking in the shoes of Harold and George is really not all what it is cracked up to be and even worse there is an evil Toilet on the loose wrecking havok upon the world. Melvin has to find a solution to keep the Toilet and finds a toenail clipping belonging to Mr. Krupp. He rushes this back to his lap while being chased and develops a DNA drink to make him powerful just in time.

Then we get a small interlude with little Timmy and his grandmother before the action returns.

We find that Melvin has defeated the giant Toilet and has become a town hero. Unfortunately being such a hero is not all it is cracked up and he finds himself being called for the most obsured things.

It is about this time George, Harold, and Captain Underpants return holding three eggs. But for the boys things are not over quite yet. Mr. Krupp is gleeful when the boys don't go to school and thrilled now that he will have the opportunity to split the boys up. Then mix in Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold and the school will never be the same!

This book was funny. I love how the teachers ended up feeling like they were going insane enough to take off their clothes and run wild in their underwear! I would too, I think, especially if I came across two Georges and two Harolds. I think that would be enough to make anyone think they were crazy. I have really come to enjoy this series and even with it's potty humor, I have been recommending it to friends who have children.
