When we last saw our heroes, George and Harold, they were under arrest and headed for prison. Then Harold foolishly uttered the fateful words "What could be worse than going to jail for the rest of our lives?" and changed the course of human history. In this ninth epic novel, Dav Pilkey takes readers back in time to the carefree days of kindergarten, when the worst thing George and Harold had to face was NOT evil mad scientists or alien cafeteria ladies but a sixth-grade bully named Kipper Krupp, the nephew of their clueless school principal. And because George and Harold don't actually invent Captain Underpants until fourth grade, the two clever kindergartners are on their own -- using their brains to beat the bully. Hold on to your UNDERPANTS -- the Captain is back

Praise for the Captain Underpants series"Full of puns, rhymes, and nonsense along with enough revenge and wish fulfillment for every downtrodden fun-seeking kid who never wanted to read a book. . . . Hooray for Captain Underpants! Watch him fly off your shelves." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL "A triumph of irreverence." -NEWSWEEK. Praise for SUPER DIAPER BABY 2 "Grown-ups will...appreciate children laughing as they dive in and page through this old-fashioned thing called a book." -THE NEW YORK TIMES. Praise for THE ADVENTURES OF OOK AND GLUK. "Few books can inspire the level of devotion seen by the Captain Underpants series, but Pilkey has likely re-created that feat with the joyous OOK AND GLUK..." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
