For use in schools and libraries only. George and Harold create a comic book superhero, Captain Underpants, and hypnotize their school principal into assuming his identity. This series tonge-in-cheek writing style and cartoonish drawings make it consistently laugh-out-loud funny.
A lover of wordplay, especially puns, Dav (pronounced "Dave") Pilkey is the author and illustrator of fiction and nonfiction books for children. Pilkey is known for his outrageous sense of humor and some of his more popular characters include an intellectually challenged family of rabbits (the Dumb Bunnies books) and a school principal who is unwittingly hypnotized by his students into becoming a crime fighter (the Captain Underpants books). As an artist, Pilkey works in a variety of mediums including, he claims, Hamburger Helper and Dijon mustard. His 1997 illustrations for the book PAPERBOY earned him a Caldecott Honor citation.
From the Publisher
George and Harold, along with Sulu and Crackers, are experiencing an entirely new set of problems when they are trapped in a world filled with opposites. Just imagine the insanity that happens when the pair finds out that they have evil twins, and Captain Underpants's rival is Captain Blunderpants! With B&W illustrations.
Harold and George's time-traveling Purple Potty lands them in an alternate universe where everything seems delightful, but evil lurks just beneath the surface, and leads to a battle between Captain Underpants and his own evil twin.
