"Pilkey plays with words and pictures, providing great entertainment. The story is immediately engaging....This book will fly off the shelves." School Library Journal
"There'll be no silence in the library once readers get hold of this somewhat classier alternative to Barf-o-Rama books and their crude ilk." Kirkus Reviews
He used to be Principal Krupp, but now he's the crime-fighting, wedgie-dodging Captain Underpants. Make way for the only superhero wacky enough to tackle the evil Dr. Diaper. Illustrations.
