Shipped to Tattered Cover in 3 to 7 days
Professor Pippy P. Poopypants may be the greatest scientific genius the world has ever known. Unfortunately, he has such a silly name that nobody takes him seriously. Needless to say, George and Harold poo-poo Poopypants' pride--practically pulverizing it--and Poopypants is preparing to pounce. This looks like a job for Captain Underpants . . .

Gr. 3-5. You knew he'd be back. Yes, Captain Un- derpants 'aka Mr. Krupp, principal of the Jerome Horwitz Elementary School, has returned, as have his enablers, students Georgend Harold. The plot? Suffice it to say Underpants must combat a scientific
genius named Professor Pippy P. Poopypants. Poopypants goes mad when the students at Horwitz laugh at his name. (When they find out his middle name is Pee-pee, they
get downright hysterical, as will readers'no doubt.) Mixed in with the minimal story is Pilkey's comic book-style artwork; some of the pages even make a "cheesy" flip book to animate the action. Silly, gross-out fun for Captain's
legion of fans. -Ilene Cooper
