Dog Man: From the Creator of Captain Underpants (Dog Man #1) - Dav Pilkey

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I really enjoyed this book. It is awesomely entertaining. 

I grew up reading the Captain Underpants and Super Diaper Baby series and loved them. As an adult I read The Adventures of Ook and Gluk and didn't like it as much. It didn't have the same appeal to me. So I was a little hesitant about trying a new series by Dav Pilkey. I picked up this book from the library to see if I'd like it.

Long story short, I did. 

It is fun and entertaining. It's weird and disgusting and creepy: classic Dav Pilkey. Yes, there is gross stuff, but it's all in good humor and let's be real, it's hilarious. There are also lots of misspellings, but that's not all that surprising. For those who say they love Captain Underpants, but didn't like the intentional misspellings in this one clearly forgot that misspellings were a big thing in Captain Underpants as well. Yes, they were contained in the comics rather than the text of the book, but they were definitely still there. This one is set up as a graphic novel, so it is all in comic form and the misspellings are all over. Use it as a teaching moment or exercise for your kids to figure out which words are spelled wrong. It's still readable and makes the book relatable for kids. 

A great read. I can't wait to continue the series.

The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future - Dav Pilkey,George Beard,Harold Hutchins
For more reviews, check out my blog Craft-Cycle

There was nothing necessarily wrong with this book. It was entertaining and funny to the degree I expected of a George Beard and Harold Hutchins original.

However, I think Dav Pilkey kind of wrote himself into a box with the Captain Underpants/Super Diaper Baby series. The book greatly lacked the gross-out humor of the other books. It was still good, but I missed that raw disgust I felt when Super Diaper Baby literally fought a piece of poo or when Captain Underpants got eaten by a giant toilet. There was a little, tiny glimmer of gross stuff in this book, but it pretty much just stopped at purely-liquid puking (that really just looked like water). This may sound weird, but as a grown-up, I wanted this book to be grosser.

Having said that, I still liked the story. It was still ridiculous like the others with a weird, all over the place plot. But I would say this one relies more of awesome-ness elements (cavemen, dinosaurs, kung-fu, time travel) than gross-out humor.

Captain Underpants and the Preposterous Plight of the Purple Potty People - Dav Pilkey
For more reviews, check out my blog Craft-Cycle

If you thought the last Captain Underpants book was weird, you ain't seen nothing yet. Time travel, alternate realities, and more hypnotism, this is definitely a strange one. A very entertaining read with all the same things that made you fall in love with these books in the first place (the cheesy jokes, the toilet humor, and most of all, the flip-o-rama).

A quick and funny read.

Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy Part Two: Revenge of the Ridiculous Robo-Boogers Pt.2 - Dav Pilkey

 

If Part 1 of The Big Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy was the grossest book in the series, this one is by far the most ridiculous. It's got everything from time travel and body switching to a catchy dance craze. And it's great. 

Very funny and silly just like the other Captain Underpants books. It ties up the plot from Part 1 nicely while also setting up the next book.

Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy, Part 1: The Night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets - Dav Pilkey

 

This is by far the grossest, most disgusting book so far in the Captain Underpants series and it is amazing.

A hilarious, self-aware adventure that is sure to gross anyone out and slyly teach them about proper grammar. 

Pilkey has a gift for creating ridiculous stories that are strangely perfect. Loved it! Can't wait to read Part 2.
