December 19th: Tra-la-la!

I know a lot of people who poo-poo Captain Underpants. Frankly, those people deserve a good wedgie administered by Miss Anthrope. While Dav Pilkey's comic-inspired chapter books starring 4rth graders, George Beard and Harold Hutchins, may not be high literature, they are funny as hell and offer any kid a clinic in punning and word play. Go to Scholastic's Captain Underpants website where you can have lots of laffs and play a few rounds of click-o-rama. Tra-la-la!

  1. Thank you! We are big Captain Underpants fans here - they were the first books that Bub would ever independently pick up to read silently - often for an hour at a time, and this in grade one!

    However, he DID get in trouble at school for writing bathroom words on the chalkboard...
