We Discover Captain Underpants!

I just read Supriya Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space (and the Subsequent Assault of the Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds (The Third Epic Novel) by Dav Pilkey. It's just awesome! The action is wonderfully improbable and unpredictable. (Also, as Manisha remarked to me, the setting is rather subversive - the kids hate school and the cafeteria food.) And Supriya is just eating it up. I picked up two well-worn copies from our friend Janet. It looks like we need to get the whole set.

Hey there - we found Captain Underpants last year and now have pretty much the whole set I think. It's fun for all of us - me, DH, and DS (about to turn 8). Not only is it good, gross out humor, the names are twisted - Miss Anthrope for example. Lots of good fun
