The Adventures of Captain Underpants: The First Epic Novel


by Dav Pilkey
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

Category: Humor

Personal Evaluation: Some of my cousins love this series, plus it’s pretty popular at the library, so I had to try it. I actually found some of it funny and it was definitely entertaining. I don’t find toilet humor quite as funny as, say, a 4th grader, but it was entertaining and fairly creative.

What might interest children: What kid doesn’t find poop funny? Also there are lots and lots of pictures, and part of the story is definitely told in the pictures. There is also a sequence of flip-book pages, which adds to the fun.
