Book Review: This is the end...?
Wow I am not sure whether to celebrate a wonderful set of books or cry because it is the end of a fun series.
I have to admit it was the movie's trailer that brought down the path of these books. The movie looked fun and I was certain the books would probably be just as fun. I was not disappointed when I picked up the first one that it kept bringing me back for more of Captain Underpants alongside George and Harold. These books kept me in stitches and were the wonderful source of reading material I went to when I came home from a long day at work.
I am going to miss Harold and George. Those two mischievous kids who took us on adventures either on this time line or in the past.
I hope in the future we might see these two once again. Maybe a bit older and still having Mr. Krupp running around in his under - oh, right, he does! xD I have to admit seeing him older as Captain Underpants was hilarious and even sweet to see Harold had a husband and that they were both very happily married. :D That was a nice added bonus and that they could still do things their younger versions could do.
This book focuses on the P.E. coach who has concocted a potion that will turn children and even adults into obedient and mindless zombies. He uses this to his advantages and unfortunately Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold end up being caught into the trap. George and Harold have to find a way to break the potion's spell and they end up once more traveling into the past.
With this being the last hooray, you get to see how the future is for both boys. Both seem to be living happy lives with their families but they are both willing to put them aside for the moment to help out. This only goes to show their younger versions that they haven't changed even when they are older. Of course, seeing Mr. Krupp a bit older and out in his underwear is pretty hilarious, if not a mental image once does not really one floating in their head.
This series was great and one I would recommend to anyone with a kid. There is going to be potty-humor but you will find yourself in stitches over this book and I am quite sure the kids will enjoy it.
