Rating: ★★★★½

This book is very funny. It’s about a school principal who had a hypnotizing mistake. And turned into a funny superhero named Captain Underpants! This book should be recommended for kids in grades 2-4.

What’s the number one most important part of a superhero’s outfit? If you guessed that it’s the cape, well… you’re WRONG! It’s actually the prominently displayed underwear! At least, that’s what Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpants seems to think. Watch our video to meet this, uh, untraditional superhero!
