From the Author
"I want kids to have as much fun reading as possible.
I suppose if there is a message to the series, it's that friendship, loyalty, and good-heartedness always triumph over selfishness, treachery, and corruption."-Dav Pilkey

Comment List (Total:17)
- Started buying this series for my husband to read to our toddler on his nights to read! My husband was griping that he only had a few books that he would read to our son because of his own preference so we got a captain underpants and haven't looked back! My husband enjoys reading these to our 3 year old son and our son loves daddy's enthusiasm, voices and excitement reading them! Wonderful buy for any dad's looking for books they enjoy reading as well!
- Received and read in 2-3 days. The boy loves Captain Underpants. It encourages him to read on his own and with parents.
- it was an awesome book. I'd highly recommend this book to kids kindergarten, 1'st grade, and second grade. - Theodore (Teddy) Brooks
- My six year old enjoyed this story. He was able to read the words all by himself. The pictures were well drawn, full of vibrant colors, and dynamic composition.
- This book series is so much fun! My son and I love reading them together.
- My son loved the book. He is 7 and I downloaded the book and he had it read by the end of the day. He is a very good reader, so I don't know if most 7 year olds would read it that quickly, but he loved it. Normally I would not give such a high rating to a book that he read so quickly, but the series keeps him reading, so that, by itself, deserves 5 stars!
- hi yo good book loop coop soup cook nook took red orange yellow green blue indogo violet for word nine
- Excellent for my 8 year old son
- item was sent as described
- My grandson loves reading these books at bed time. It gives us something to share. He reads one page and I read the other. It keeps his reading skills up during the summer and during school time.
- Another good book from Dav Pilkey
- Our 4 yo really loves reading this series and has read it several times and even brought it to school to share and trade with class mates. Any book that makes our kids read on their own is worth the price of admission. The story is silly and immature but that's what kids love. My son has rad the entire series already.
- I've had trouble finding "starter" chapter books for my son who is reading at the right level for them but not ready, in terms of attention span, for a whole page of words with an occasional line drawing. This is the only series I've found with exciting, full-color illustrations and short text passages, but at the same reading level as the other, wordier series. The criticism that the plot is the same in all of them is valid, but who cares? It's not for my benefit; all that matters is that it keeps my six-year-old engaged.
- The Captain Underpants books are full of bathroom humor, bad jokes/puns and everything just on the nice side of gross that so many kiddos (mine are boys) can love. The books are not exactly 'nice' for those of more tender sensibilities but there are two redeeming features that are huge.First, for that reluctant reader, the books are tremendously appealing in that the kids are quite (correctly) certain that this is just for them--as though they are getting away with reading something, well, too cool for the grownups. Plus the illustrations are funny, and there are the occasional directives to the reader to go do something silly that are strangely attractive.Second, the Lexile scores are surprisingly high. I would have not expected this, but the score for the Revolting Revenge is 890. The entire series ranges from 640-890 with all but two in the 700s and 800s. This makes ME feel like I'M getting away with something, it's like sneaking ground up cauliflower into the macaroni and cheese--it's a silly book but hey, it's good for him.Fair warning, though engrossing, the books are not good for quiet time! Things like 2 page 'flip stories' heralded by the loud flap-flap-flap coming from the direction of the offspring, or the sudden outburst of a dubious song are quite startling. Perhaps right in line with a grade schooler's sense of humor, but not with a parent's (or teacher's) sense of propriety in a situation that calls for peace and quiet.My son's reluctant days of reading are far behind now, he's more like an avid reader now. However, he still loves the Captain Underpants books and informed me that CUATRROFRR-B was a Must Buy, and after reading it declared it quite entertaining. He does note that the books do not need to be read in order, but it's better if you do.Highly Recommended (by my children...and me)JTG
- My daughter LOVES this series. She loves this series so much that she usually hops in to bed a little bit earlier so that we can read a few extra chapters. This is our bedtime book. Before this series my daughter HATED reading, it was easier to bring her to the doctor for a shot than it was to get her to read a book. This series has opened her up to exploring other books as well. I'm not sure that this series is for everyone, It has a lot of silly potty humor and intentional misspellings (comic books that were supposed to be written by the main characters who are in 4th grade (?)) and such. I like the books and I'm hoping that series will be the beginning of a life long love of books.
- My son loves it!!
