2017 Reading Quest 13

BookThe Adventures of Captain Underpants:  An Epic Novel.

Author: Dav Pilkey

Info:  Copyright 2000: New York: Scholastic

Rating (on a scale of 1-4 stars):  ✮✭✭ 

Where Acquired:  Library check out.

Category:  Impulse Read. 

What it's about:   Best friends George and Harold are the misfits of their fourth-grade class.  When not suffering through academia, their favorite activity (other than stirring up trouble) is creating their own comic book heroes.  One of their favorites is Captain Underpants, an unlikely superhero bedecked in a cape and tighty-whities with very little in the way of defensive weaponry.  Through a set of unfortunate (or fortunate) events, George and Harold turn their overbearing principal, Mr. Krupp, into their superhero.  Full of unlikely (not to mention ridiculous) adventures, this is a fun story for young readers...well, and older readers if you have a silly side like I do.

What I Liked:
  • In all its immature silliness, the book was pretty funny with hilarious illustrations to boot.
  • It was a short fun read that only took about an hour to finish.
What I didn’t like: 
  •  Nothing I can think of.  This book isn't serious, so not a lot of analytics going on here.
Takeaway:  Nothing serious, just some great laughs from a fun story that got me through my day.  I just might read the rest of the series later.
