Synopsis

George and Harold have created the greatest superhero in the history of their elementary school—and now they've accidentally brought him to life! Read the first book in this bestselling series about two creative kids and the zany misadventures that follow when Captain Underpants leaps off the page to save the day! Acclaimed author and Caldecott Honor artist Dav Pilkey takes readers on a wild ride in this outrageously funny, action-packed, easy-to-read chapter book. With illustrations on every page, it's great for both beginning and chapter-book readers, and sure to turn even the most reluctant of readers into lifelong fans. This updated ebook edition now includes a bonus chapter in full-color that reveals the true origins of Captain Underpants!

The toilet humor in this rip-roaring series has set some adults on edge — it's a frequently challenged book according to the American Library Association — but no surprise, the kids can't get enough.
