Gr. 3-5. You knew he'd be back. Yes, Captain Un- derpants 'aka Mr. Krupp, principal of the Jerome Horwitz Elementary School, has returned, as have his enablers, students Georgend Harold. The plot? Suffice it to say Underpants must combat a scientific
genius named Professor Pippy P. Poopypants. Poopypants goes mad when the students at Horwitz laugh at his name. (When they find out his middle name is Pee-pee, they
get downright hysterical, as will readers'no doubt.) Mixed in with the minimal story is Pilkey's comic book-style artwork; some of the pages even make a "cheesy" flip book to animate the action. Silly, gross-out fun for Captain's
legion of fans. -Ilene Cooper
