Opinion

From Library Staff

For the second year in a row, Captain Underpants, a principal-turned-fake-superhero made #1. It has been banned for offensive language, being unsuited for age group, and violence.

Who knew that a children's story about a superhero in underpants would become the most challenged book of the decade! From this first book to the latest, the series has been challenged for "offensive language, unsuited for age group."

Great read! It was so cool. It had like comics within the books and like these flip pages which made it look like the characters were really doing things! EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!

While its humour may be considered "toilet talk" by adults, I acknowledge that I am not the target audience, yet I still get a good chuckle out of all Dav Pilkey's books. This is where his jokes really shine through. The visuals and short chapters will keep even the most reluctant children to reading hooked. I always would beg my Mom to read two chapters rather than one. In fact, perhaps maybe that's a downside - it's a little bit short. But just let your guard down and then it'll be good!

Its a fun book to read im loveing these books very much.

My son is almost 6 and an advanced reader. However, he says he doesnt enjoy reading. I was told about the Captain Underpants books by a friend. I made a deal with him to read 1 page and I will read the next. My son really hooted and howled with laughter at all the potty humor. He asked me to keep going and between the both of us, we finished this book in just 2 days. I will be borrowing the rest of this series as well. Enjoy.
