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."

When George and Harold hypnotize their principal into thinking that he is the superhero Captain Underpants, he leads them to the lair of the nefarious Dr. Diaper, where they must defeat his evil robot henchmen.

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!

You know, you'd think it wouldn't take that much time to put it in color. I would think they'd have the whole series in color now.

My six year old (a girl) really likes the humour of the Captain Underpants books!

Dec 27, 2011

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.

Student: Help! The inedible hunk just ate up 15 folding chairs and the gym teacher!

Principal: Oh no! Not the folding chairs!
