Product description

When naughty George and Harold hypnotise their headteacher, they accidentally create the greatest superhero in the history of their school — CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS! His true identity is so secret that even HE doesn’t know who he is, but he’s fighting for Truth, Justice and All Things Pre-Shrunk and Cottony! If you’re a naughty villain like the diabolical Dr Diaper, watch out! Captain Underpants has wedgie-power on his side, and he’s coming your way. Stop, in the name of Underwear!

    Mr.Krupp is a mean man! At least he was before two schoolboys-George and Harold zapped him with a hypno ring so now he thinks he’s a superhero called captain underpants! I would recommend this book to 6-11 year olds

    Captain Underpants books are really funny and whenever he gets a splash of water on him he turns back into a normal horrible school teacher!

    I thought that this book is extremely good because u get 2 see the humour. But the best thing about it is that there are some things that are called flip-o-rama. You put your left hand on something then it becomes good, like a moving picture. it is basicly about a superhero named ( captain Underpants) who saves the world from evil.
