Publisher Comments:

Professor Pippy P. Poopypants may very well be the greatest scientific genius the world has ever known. Unfortunately, he has such a silly name that nobody takes him seriously! He's been laughed out of every major university in the world. In fact, the only place that will hire him is Jerome Horwitz Elementary School, home of George and Harold, those class clowns who are always making trouble.

At this point, Professor Pippy P. Poopypants is at the end of his rope. And it's terribly important that nobody at his new school laugh at his name...because if just one more person makes fun of Poopypants, it might just drive him off the deep end! Needless to say, George and Harold poo-poo Poopypants's pride and practically pulverize it to pieces. Now, Poopypants is preparing to pounce!

Step up to witness a brief encounter of the cottony kind...For, oddly enough, this looks exactly like a job for The Amazing Captain Underpants!

Review:

"With its bathroom humor, madcap pranks, gross adventures, mini-comic strips, and flip-book pages, this rollicking laugh-out-loud cartoon story is certain to be a hit, especially with reluctant readers." School Library Journal

Review:

"Funny, creative, and somewhat irreverent, you'll laugh out loud and have fun finding your new names as you flip through the action filled pages." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

Professor Pippy P. Pooypants may be the world's greatest scientific genius, but he has such a silly name that nobody takes him seriously. When George and Harold poo-poo Poopypants' pride, the professor is prepared to pounce. This looks like a job for Captain Underpants!

Synopsis:

The fourth book in Dav Pilkey's mega-bestselling Captain Underpants series. Now with super-cool foil covers! Shiny! Fun!

George and Harold aren't bad kids. They just like to "liven things up" for everybody. Unfortunately, their thoughtful jokes sometimes get them into a LOT of trouble. And when Professor Pippy P. Poopypants becomes their new science teacher...well, George and Harold almost cause the entire planet to be taken over by a maniacal, mad-scientist guy in a giant robot suit! Who will stop the perilous plot of Poopypants?!!? This looks like a job for Captain Underpants!

Synopsis:

Now with super-cool foil covers! Shiny! Fun!

I teach 4th and 5th graders who have special needs. The Captain Underpants series has them reading chapter books and even talking about what's in them! It's fun teaching when students are so motivated to read.
