The three members of the Bad Guy Brotherhood have broken out of jail, and now they're coming after the superhero who put them there: Melvin Beederman! Goofball McCluskey, Max the Wonder Thug, and Calamity Wayne are building a time machine so they can get Melvin before he ever became a superhero.

Can Melvin and Candace travel back in time and reach the Superhero Academy to save young Melvin?

Praise For The Brotherhood of the Traveling Underpants (Melvin Beederman, Superhero #7)

“A fun, flighty caper. Slyly sprinkled with borrowings from superhero tales and packed with kid-pleasing yucks, this copiously and comically illustrated tale is sufficiently full of baloney to fly.” —Publishers Weekly on Melvin Beederman

“Trine's fast-paced, humorous new series will capture the hearts of bright new readers.” —Jody Fickes Shapiro, Adventures for Kids, Ventura, CA, Booksense Children's Picks on Melvin Beederman

“Trine and Montijo have given readers an appealing superhero and his trusty assistant. These delightfully entertaining adventure stories are a must-have for most libraries.” —School Library Journal on Melvin Beederman
