Can Captain Underpants clean up this catastrophe, or will the mucous monster make a mess of things?

About the Author

As a child, Dav Pilkey was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hall every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories, so he spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books. In the second grade, Dav Pilkey created a comic book about a superhero named Captain Underpants. His teacher ripped it up and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books. Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener. Dav has gone on to create award-winning and bestselling books for children. His Captain Underpants series has more than 80 million copies in print worldwide and has been translated into more than 28 languages. In 2017, DreamWorks Animation brought the character to the silver screen in the feature film adaptation Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, and Netflix is now streaming The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants TV show. Dav’s latest creation, Dog Man, continues to be a #1 New York Times bestselling series with more than 23 million copies in print worldwide and translations available in more than 32 languages. Dav is also the creator of the Dragon series, the Dumb Bunnies series, Dog Breath, and The Paperboy, which is a Caldecott Honor Book. Dav lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.

We bought this book. The last Pilkey book we read was the disgustingly over-the-top Super Diaper Baby. Now back to the core series we found the gross out factor is destined to remain high. In this book Harold and George, our heroes, teach their classmates a prank called "Squishies" which will have parents checking the toilet before sitting down for weeks. Their classmate Melvin Sneedly tries to show off an invention that combines two things (like a bionic robot and a hamster). Despite being smart Melvin is not a good kid and he reacts badly to his classmates being less interested in watching him yell at his hamster than trying out a prank. Probably not the best of moves, Harold and George turn Melvin into a spoiled brat monster in one of their comics which pushes Melvin to show everyone how much cooler he is than George and Harold by turning himself into a bionic robot. Too bad Melvin has allergies and sneezes right before the combining. Surprisingly Melvin, unlike the rest of Harold and George's victims, doesn't turn evil until he's assaulted by a tissue man on a school field trip. Then George, Harold and Captain Underpants have to defeat their grossest bad guy yet, and all during cold and flu season. Despite what parents think, kids adore this series. It has the right combination of gross, funny and meat to it. And it does redeem itself by showing that you don't have to get straight As or always be right to be the good guy. It also pokes fun at itself and combines a subtle use of language with the subject matter which helps push middle grade reader boundaries. I'd be surprised if libraries don't already have this series, but parents looking for books to encourage their kids to read for pleasure outside of school should definitely try this series. It's funny, gross, sometimes a little bit scary, but all in a safe way. Contains: Gross jokes and illustrations Recommended for: 9-12 yrs

The book I am reviewing is Captain Underpants and the Big Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy by Dav Pilkey. I give this book four stars because I like the book it. It is funny. Something I don¿t like about it is that Captain Underpants doesn¿t come out until half way through the story. This book is about a really smart kid named Melvin Sneedly who makes a machine. This machine is called Combine-O-2000. This machine morphs things. One day Melvin has some sort of cold and he keeps sneezing. Melvin sneezes, the machine turns on and zaps him. He gets turned into a big nasty booger boy. Melvin is now a big booger boy. Melvin tries to go back to class but everyone was afraid of him. So Melvin thinks he can do anything he wants. When he touches things he leaves a big glob of snot everywhere. So he gets the idea to scare and gross out everyone. It is like he is the ruler of the school. Now Captain Underpants arrives to make Melvin go back to the way he was. When he does something happens¿ I would recommend this book to my classmates because it is funny and it is one of those books that you just want to keep reading. If you don¿t like nasty things I don¿t think you will like it too much. Captain Underpants is the book to read.

This is one of the greatest books i have ever read. It is aimed for kids from 2-5th grade. It is a no holds barred adrennaline filled action fueled thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. There are many pictures for kids to enjoy and a cool flip-o-rama action picture sequence. If you have a youngster, this will welcome them into reading.

This book is a great book about two students named George Beard and Harold Hutchins that accidentally hypnotize their principle to think he is a super hero and he drinks a super power box of orange juice from outers space. Then his adventures begin in this book there is a mad school brainiac that tries to make himself into a super human robot to destroy George and Harold. Will Captain Underpants save the day? this book would be good for ages 6-14.

It's been very difficult to get my son to actually enjoy reading. Before reading a book, he would first go to the end of the book to see how many pages there were (as if he was being sentenced to reading or something). I brought home Captain Underpants, and now hardly comes up for air. My son is reading, and he loves it!!!

What can I say? My sons can never get enough Captain Underpants--and Pilkey's over-the-top humor even makes me laugh. We've been waiting for this one!!

I saw this at the local Target and as an 'older and mature' male was fascinated by the title. Once I started reading I didn't stop laughing. Are we sure this is a 'child's' book? Whoa! Where was this stuff when I was growing up? Badda bing.

Book six in the Captain Underpants series.Captain Underpants will be called upon to save the world AGAIN after George and Harold's latest prank makes the school brainiac so mad that he will do anything to get back at them. All it takes is an ill-timed sneeze and the Bionic Booger Boy is born. Be sure to have Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy, Part 2 on hand before you start this one.

In the first chapter, Booger Boys, which is the Antagonist in this book attack an academy, which is George and Harold made. But Bionic Hamster putted the Booger Boys in his mouth, and spat them out. That chapter was so fun, and also this is so fun too!!!

In this book Harold and George upset the genius NAME. He gets mad and makes a robot to transform himself into it. He imagines himself in front of the girls showing off. Then he is transforming and snot comes out of his nose. The machine combines the snot, him, and the robot. Read and find out what Captain Underpants is going to do in this amazing book.

Obviously you don't pick up a book titled "Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy, Part 1: The Night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets" if you are particularly concerned about protecting your little snowflake from all things improprietous. Having said that, I can usually forgive a lot of Dav Pilkey, because he is usually exceedingly funny, but not even my seven-year old son could find anything to laugh about in this one.

The most wonderful thing about Captain Underpants is that, like it or not, these amusing books inspire young readers to read.

Been a long time since I read the last book in this series. Figure finish the series I had started but stopped reading for some reason. Captain Underpants is one of them. I'll admit, the flip pages were kind of fun. Miss flip books. The recap was nice, since I kind of forgot what happened in the series thus far. Anyway, at times this was a little gross. But at least you get a warning for those chapters, so thank you for that. Though the title should of been a giveaway as to what I'll expect from this. Good addition to the series.

The book I read was Captain Underpants. I enjoyed reading the book. I have read it many times. The story is about two boys named Harold and George and they always get into trouble. The principle in this story is Captain Underpants. The book is based upon a boy named Melvin Sneedly. He is a nerd at his school and he got sick of being laughed at. So, built a robot so that he could combine his body with the robot. But when the machine was loading he sneezed and it combined his mucus with the robot and his body. He turned into the boogerboy. He stayed the nasty form for a while untill he went on a field trip to a tissue factory. He got mad turned into a ginormous monster. Captain Underpants faught him and saved the day. I enjoyed the book a lot. The author of this great book would be Dav Pilkey. This is my favorite book. This is the end of my review.
