    Jennifer Jacquet: IMG Is Shame Necessary?



    Is Shame Necessary? is my first book, so I am far from having earned the right to discuss writing a book in general. But I can say something about... Continue »

Publisher Comments:

When film-loving twins Joules and Kevin Rockman left their summer camp, they thought their days of fighting evil bunnies from outer space were over. Surely there wonand#8217;t be giant rabbits bent on world domination at their school, right? Wrong. Luckily, these bunnies arenand#8217;t FLUFFS (Fierce, Large, Ugly, and Ferocious Furballs)and#8212;sugar-addicted giant rabbits out to hypnotize and kill. Unluckily, theyand#8217;re worse: the FOOFS (Fierce, Obnoxious, Odoriferous Furballs)and#8212;seemingly normal-size rabbits (with extra-large noses) out to take over the world! Can Joules and Kevin save themselves, and their school, from the Schnoz of Doom?

Seriously funny New York Times bestselling author Andrea Beaty raises the stakes in this sequel to her zany, pulpy sci-fi farce. And, not to use Famous Last Words, but with illustrations by the great Dan Santat (The Guild of Geniuses, Sidekicks), what could possibly go wrong?

Review:

"A toast of 'non-alckaholick wine' to the ninth Captain Underpants novel — and to Dav Pilkey's refusal to coast. In fact, the title is something of a red herring since the true centerpiece of this installment is a lengthy flashback to 'exactly five years, eleven days, fourteen hours, and six minutes ago,' when mopey kindergartner Harold Hutchins first met precocious George Beard, who sports an awesome Afro instead of his usual flattop. The boys face a nasty nemesis in the form of Kipper Krupp, the bullying sixth-grade nephew of Principal Krupp, but since Principal Krupp is years away from becoming the world's greatest superhero, it's up to the boys to defeat Kipper on their own. Their intricate and ingenious plan incorporates (and this is a short list) locker sabotage, fear of the paranormal, cheerleaders, pizza deliveries, a huge pair of pants, and the creation of the seminal comic 'The Advenchers of Dogman.' Pilkey dials back the toilet humor considerably, but plenty of naughtiness is still afoot (there's an extended riff on the hilarity of turning a 'Brake Inspection' sign into 'Bra Inspection'), and egregious misspellings abound. Supa! Ages 7 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

In the fourth hilarious adventure in this chapter book series, a villainous pink lemonade-swilling pirate and the dastardly Dr. Dastardly want revenge on fourth-grade superhero Jo Schmo and her dog Raymond.

Synopsis:

Fourth grade superhero Jo Schmo and her doggy sidekick Raymond are having a pretty rotten dayand#8212;they just donand#8217;t know it yet. Danger is lurking all over the place: Dr. Dastardly and Numb Skull are planning a jail break, and they want to get revenge on Jo Schmo. Then a group of time-traveling pirates shows up in San Francisco and winds up on the wrong end of Jo Schmoand#8217;s famous fighting move, the Tasmanian Chop. So Pinkbeard the pirate joins forces with the dastardly doctor to concoct the evilest revenge plot ever. Watch out, Jo Schmo! And your little dog, too!

Synopsis:

Tra-la-laaa! Captain Underpants is back in an all-new epic adventure that's the zaniest, funniest, outrageousest, and time-travelingiest yet!

When we last saw our heroes, George and Harold, they were under arrest and headed for prison. Then Harold foolishly uttered the fateful words "What could be worse than going to jail for the rest of our lives?" and changed the course of human history.

In this ninth epic novel, Dav Pilkey takes readers back in time to the carefree days of kindergarten, when the worst thing George and Harold had to face was NOT evil mad scientists or alien cafeteria ladies but a sixth-grade bully named Kipper Krupp, the nephew of their clueless school principal. And because George and Harold don't actually invent Captain Underpants until fourth grade, the two clever kindergartners are on their own — using their brains to beat the bully.

Hold on to your UNDERPANTS — the Captain is back!
