Even though these books are for extremely young children, I do really like them. They have silly stories, but they stay very consistant.

Book Review: The Adventures of Captain Underpants 1-5 by Dav Pilkey


Title & Author: The Adventures of Captain Underpants 1-5 by Dav Pilkey
Genre: Humor, Drama
Release date: September 1 1997
Series: Captain Underpants
Publisher: Scholastic


Two fourth-grade boys who write comic books and love to pull pranks find themselves in big trouble. Mean Mr. Krupp, their principal, videotapes George and Harold setting up their stunts and threatens to expose them. The boys’ luck changes when they send for a 3-D Hypno-Ring and hypnotize Krupp, turning him into Captain Underpants, their own superhero creation.

I give The Adventures of Captain Underpants books 1-5 by Dav Pilkey four out of five hearts because I think they are really funny and Dav really found a good formula for these kids books.

George and Harold are two fourth graders which are always up to no good and they are really funny. I love them and their little acts of rebellion. Their principal, Krupp, is one of those typical adults using their power over their children.

Each story is different and the villain is always different, talking toilets, aliens, a professor who feels made fun of. They are always interesting and full of humor.

Overall these short books are completely worth every bit of money one would spend on them. Dav Pilkey’s writing is great and is always funny.
