The boys have to hypnotize Principal Krupp again so that, as Captain Underpants, he can battle the menace. But will it be enough?
"The combination of total departure from reality, smirky insider humor, and crucial taboos as plot points will draw middle-graders like magnets....A tome for the ages this ain't, but it'll make kids laugh until soda comes out of their noses." Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
"[A] worthy sequel to The Adventures of Captain Underpants; Pilkey maintains the original's satiric, self-referential formula....Bart Simpson could learn a few things from the subversively hilarious Harold and George." Publishers Weekly
"The fun is in the reading, which is full of puns, rhymes, and nonsense along with enough revenge and wish fulfillment for every downtrodden fun-seeking kid who never wanted to read a book." School Library Journal
George and Harold are up to their usual tricks. Last time they hypnotized Principal Krupp into believing he was Captain Underpants. Now, they bring to life the most disgusting monster the terrible Turbo Toilet 2000. Illustrations.
Now with super-cool foil covers! Shiny! Fun!
