Captain Underpants

The Adventures of Captain Underpants, a hugely successful series, centres around two fourth graders (Year 6s in UK), George and Harold, and Captain Underpants, an unlikely superhero, whom the two boys have created in a comic strip. But when the two boys hypnotise their megalomaniac headmaster, Mr Krupp, Captain Underpants accidentally becomes a reality. The absurdity of this story is utterly delightful with plenty of toilet humour, opportunity to try out evil villain laughs, and an appealing comic books style. With 14 books, three spin offs and the film rights on Dreamworks Animation’s desk, this is a series that you won’t be able to get enough of.
