Publisher Comments:

Best-selling author-illustrator Dav Pilkey presents an outrageously funny new adventure in this latest installment of the enormously popular Captain Underpants series, with over ten million books in print. In this hilarious epic novel, the amazing Captain Underpants faces the wickedest, wildest, wedgiest villain yet! George and Harold have really done it this time, they've created a MONSTER! She's faster, stronger, and smarter than anything the world has seen before — she's Wedgie Woman! With the help of her horrible robots and her horrible hairdo, Wedgie Woman is on a mission to take over the world, and she'll give a whopping wedgie to anyone who stands in her way — including Captain Underpants. Will Wedgie Woman's wicked ways spell the end for our heroes? You'll have to read the book to find out. And in the meantime, watch your back!

Review:

"As in the previous four episodes, neither the pace nor the funky humor ('Diapers and toilets and poop... oh my!') lets up for a moment. Pilkey is still having entirely too much fun with this popular series, which continues to careen along with nary a whiff of staleness." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

In theand#160;third hilarious adventure of this chapter book series, fourth-grade superhero Jo Schmoand#160;discovers a very unusual talent for shape-shifting as she and her dog Raymond try to stop a crime wave in San Francisco. Monsters and sharks and bad guys, oh my!

Synopsis:

Meet Jo Schmo, fourth-grade superhero!

Synopsis:

and#8220;I am retiring from my life as a superhero and have enclosed my cape. Use it well. Sincerely, Uncle George.and#8221;

Jo Schmo comes from a long line of crime fighters, but sheand#8217;s just a normal fourth grade girl into boys and skateboardsand#8212;until her uncleand#8217;s cape arrives on her San Francisco doorstep. Time to join the family business! Gramps shows Jo the tricks of the trade, and her dog, Raymond, becomes her slobbery sidekick. Just in time, too. Can Jo stop Dr. Dastardly and his deadly gang of dead dinos? Stay tuned for more adventures of Jo Schmo, complete with hilarious black-and-white illustrations.

Synopsis:

Fourth-grade superhero Jo Schmo doesnand#8217;t know that a crime wave is about to hit her city. Sheand#8217;s too busy learning new superhero skills, like shape-shifting. Only it doesnand#8217;t seem to be going very well: what bad guy is scared of a superhero that looks like a frizzy-haired teacher? But Jo and her loyal doggy sidekick, Raymond, know they have to stop the villainous Numb Skull before the crime wave builds into full-on crime tsunami. And if that means Jo has to risk shape-shifting into a freckled monster, then thatand#8217;s just what sheand#8217;ll do!

Description:

Watch out, world — it's wedgie power with a vengeance when Captain Underpants faces the wickedest, wildest villain yet!

George Beard and Harold Hutchins don't get straight A's, aren't sports stars, and can barely walk down the hallway without getting into trouble. But they have one thing that most folks at their school don't have: Imagination. And that drives their mean homeroom teacher, Ms. Ribble, crazy!

This time, George and Harold have imagined up a comic book where Ms. Ribble turns into an evil, bionic-powered, wedgie-giving wacko. And now she's mad enough to flunk them out of fourth grade. Will Ms. Ribble's revenge ruin our heroes' hopes? This looks like another job for Captain Underpants!
