What did you like about the book? There is absolutely nothing missing from this Captain Underpants adventure.  The villain, Tippy Tinkletrousers, escapes Captain Underpants to find himself five years in the past as George and Harold meet as kindergarteners.  We learn how they devised the most devious and clever plans to defeat the 6th grade bullies at their school – the ones who daily stole kindergarteners lunch money and gave them wedgies.  Watching the bullies suffer through all of the duo’s intricate ingenious exploits is hilariously rewarding.  This full-color edition, showcasing the inimitable Pilkey illustrations, was published in 2019 with the original in 2012.

Anything you did not like about the book?  Nothing.

To whom would you recommend this book? Obviously fans of Dav Pilkey who like not only Captain Underpants but Dog Man, as well -grades 3-6 who like graphic novels filled with cleverness and humor.

Who should buy this book? Public and elementary school libraries and Captain Underpants fans.

Where would you shelve it?  J Fiction

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles?  If you are a Dav Pilkey/Captain Underpants fan, of course!
