"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

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!
