Captain Underpants and the preposterous plight of the purple potty people

Written by Dav Pilkey

Reviewed by Petter P (age 8)

In the first chapter, there were two boys named George and Harold who made a mistake to go past time, and now everything is x-rayed. They didn’t let their machine cool down. In chapter two, adults were bonkers, so George and Harold avoided them. Adults are bonkers because when you are a baby, the adults are very nice to you, but when you get a little older, adults start to get meaner to you.

I think the people in this book are totally bonkers, because they don’t want you to say pee-pee and poo-poo even though they say pee-pee and poo-poo when they’re trying to potty-train you. I think George and Harold are crazy, because they went into the past and didn’t let their machine cool down, and then they were x-rayed.

I recommend this book to people with a good sense of humor, because they would think this book is funny, and they would laugh all day. I would also recommend this book to adults, so they could see what Dav Pilkey wrote about them. I wouldn’t recommend this book to little girls, because they would say, “Ew!” because it’s nasty.
