As stated in two previous posts (here and here), the boys want to share their reviews of the books that stayed on their bedside table over this past year.

This first review is by Cutie Pie, a nine year old reading enthusiast, of one of his favorite book series, Captain Underpants.

Book Review: Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey

The principle was hypnotized, and now when anyone snaps their fingers he turns into Captain Underpants. Captain Underpants has saved the town from things like toilets that came alive during an accident at a science fair, and a giant pair of robot boxer-shorts.

Only George and Harold know Captain Underpants’ real identity (along with yesterday-George and yesterday-Harold. You will have to read the books to understand!)

This may sound like a strange book-description, but you should read it! It’s very funny, although your mom and dad might not get all the humor.

-by Cutie Pie, male, age 9

I actually have read a couple of the books in this series with Cutie Pie. The humor is definitely what will draw a young boy into this, as the whole book is rather silly from an adult’s perspective. Keep that in mind and read it from your child’s perspective and I think you will find it rather silly as well.

The Scholastic page for this book series has links to fun games and extras if you’d like to check it out!


What book is your child loving at the moment?
