I really enjoyed this book. It is awesomely entertaining.
I grew up reading the Captain Underpants and Super Diaper Baby series and loved them. As an adult I read The Adventures of Ook and Gluk and didn't like it as much. It didn't have the same appeal to me. So I was a little hesitant about trying a new series by Dav Pilkey. I picked up this book from the library to see if I'd like it.
Long story short, I did.
It is fun and entertaining. It's weird and disgusting and creepy: classic Dav Pilkey. Yes, there is gross stuff, but it's all in good humor and let's be real, it's hilarious. There are also lots of misspellings, but that's not all that surprising. For those who say they love Captain Underpants, but didn't like the intentional misspellings in this one clearly forgot that misspellings were a big thing in Captain Underpants as well. Yes, they were contained in the comics rather than the text of the book, but they were definitely still there. This one is set up as a graphic novel, so it is all in comic form and the misspellings are all over. Use it as a teaching moment or exercise for your kids to figure out which words are spelled wrong. It's still readable and makes the book relatable for kids.
A great read. I can't wait to continue the series.
