Description: The Baby is back!!!!!George and Harold (the co-stars of the enormously popular Captain Underpants series) are in big trouble again! Their mean principal, Mr. Krupp, has demanded that they stop making comics about poop. Always resourceful, the boys decide to create an all-new graphic novel about a totally different subject: Pee!
Rip Van Tinkle started his career as an ordinary, everyday evil genis/inventor/bank robber. But when he awakens one morning to find himself transformed into a walking, talking puddle of pee-pee, he becomes determined to destroy every toilet in town. Will they terrifying Rip Van Tinkle and his smart-alecky cat Petey ruin restrooms for the rest of us? Or could this be a job for the amazing Super Diaper Baby?
Jake's Review: Give it to me I want to read it now! Ok, Ok, please may I read the book now my lovely mother. This book rocks you have to totally read it. It is full of potty jokes and gross stuff that all boys my age like. I don't think girls will like it, other than you mom, you are not a real girl, because of all the gross pee and poo stuff. It makes me laugh though, I can't wait to bring it to school tomorrow to show my buddies. This is one of the books that Brian will actually read. I like that there are lots of flip o rama's and it was a book I could read in one night before going to bed. This is just like all the rest of the Captain Underpants books -- funny and a book that even if you don't like reading, you will like!
Jake's Rating: 11/10
Mom's Review: Ok, I know I am a 40 yr old Mom and really shouldn't enjoy these books as much as I do -- but I will not lie, I totally LMAO everytime I read them. This book has all of the usual Pilkey innocent and fun potty humour. The artwork is delightful and the storyline perfectly engaging for the typical 7 -12 yr old kid (and dorky mom's who never grew up). I think these are fantastic books for the reluctant reader and a must have for all libraries. Don't tell kids but there are some hidden morals in the story and some very wise truths that they won't even realize they are picking up. Urine (come on you know I couldn't help myself from putting that in) for a real treat with this one!
Mom's Rating: 10/10
We received this from Scholastic in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Nikole -- Jake thinks I am totally cool for bringing him home this one to review!
