This book was NOT in “Good” condition

I received this yesterday. I sat to read it with my kids. The pictures are colored with crayon scribbles and half of chapter two is missing. Very frustrating. I didn’t expect it to be perfect but at least usable.

Buying the series for my 7 yr old grandson he loves them so happy he's reading

"More Flip-O-Rama!"

"Their teacher, Ms. Ribble might say that George and Harold were 'disruptive' and 'behaviorally challenged.' ...But if you ask their parents, they'd probably say that George and Harold were smart and sweet, and very good-natured...even if they were a bit silly at times. I'd have to agree with their parents."Dav Pilky's affectionate, "epic novel" further chronicles the adventures of George and Harold and their principal, Mr. Krupp, who turns into heroic "Captain Underpants" whenever someone snaps their fingers. Pilky unapologetically presents toilet jokes, body part jokes (the boys switch a sign from "pretty armchairs" to "hairy armpits"), and brazen disobedience at school. That's a warnng to potential buyers who can't stand this kind of juvenile humor.But the book is for juveniles (and those in touch with their inner juvenile). Pilkey's silly jokes, gimmicks (FLIP-O-RAMA), and self-referential chapter titles are inspired insipid fun, and not nearly as violent as the Three Stooges. More mature children will appreciate Pilkey's skewering of the traditional kids' book and his celebration of low-tech, non-glossy gimmickry. Oh, and not that it matters, but the evil Talking Toilets are defeated by the "Photo-Atomic Trans-Somgobulating Yectofantriplutonic-zanziptomiser" (or PANSY). 139 pages of fun and lowbrow humor. By the way, just in case you need to defend this book from literary watchdogs, tell them that "Publishers Weekly" called the first book in the series ("The Adventures of Captain Underpants") "the funniest book of the year."


My 7-year-old son and I read this together and laughed all the way through. Dav Pilkey uses his goofy imagination to write a very entertaining book for all ages. The best part is when the boys rearrange the letters on the sign to say something utterly silly (they do this in every book). George and Harold's ideas seem fairly innocent at first but cause dilemmas that even Captain Underpants can't resolve. Instead of panicking, George and Harold come up with zany ideas that actually work and save the day, plus more! This book will get any reluctant reader begging for the next Captain Underpants adventure. Keep 'em coming, Dav!

Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets

I read some of the other reviews and one stated that this was not a book for adults - true, it's not one I would have purchased solely for my own enjoyment - but enjoy it I did. My 7 year old son and I bought the book at the book fair and this is our second go round with it as a bed time book. We enjoy it as much or more each time we read it together. My 4 year old daughter can't wait to get her own Capt Underpants book. Thank you Mr. Pilkey for a book the whole family can read together - I am waiting impatiently for the next Capt Underpants adventure, I may even let the kids read it when I'm done...stay tuned................

I thought the book was excellent

I like the book because it was very funny and full of action. I think that it's a really good book for kids so they can laugh. The funniest part for me was when a toilet ate Captain Underpants and the kids made a new drawing so they could help Captain Underpants. But I really recommend this book to kids who like to laugh a lot.
