Captain Underpants and the Big Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy illustration will appear here.

The book I read is called Captain Underpants and the Big Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy. This story is about a Jealous little boy named Melvin who turns himself into a Bionic Booger. He tried to destroy the whole school because he always wants to be the best but Captian Underpants and Sulu stop it. In the beginning, two boys hypnotize their Principal, Mr. Krupp. They made him think he was a super hero just for a little bit of fun. The two boys names are George and Harold. Also, there is another boy named Melvin. Melvin tries to show off by making a hamster a roboslave. A roboslave is a robot you command. But Melvin fails. He makes a combine machine, an experiment to transform things by mixing himself and a robot to be the smartest, strongest, best student in school.

One thunderous night, Melvin tuned into a Booger boy by combining himself with a booger and a robot. Then he comes to school but peple don't want to play with him. Melvin continue to try to be the best and doesn't want to be stopped. He tried to kill Captain Underpants but he only paralyzes him. Captain Underpants comes to the rescue with George and Harold by running to the scence of the crime. However, Sulu, the hamster, actually destroys Booger Boy. He destoys him because the Melvin didn't respect Sulu. Melvin would always grab the ping pong paddle and hit Sulu. Sulu's weapons were a cane, an extra large boxing gloves, and teeth.

My favorite part of the book is when George and Harold do a "squishy" on Melvin because it is funny. I also like the part when Sulu, the hamster, shot a tree with watermelon because it is ridiculous. I felt like laughing gas was all around. One of the characters, Captain Underpants, reminds me of my dad becasue he acts like a superhero sometimes. It reminded me of him because he doesn't like jokes very much either. I wonder how the author comes up with all the jokes.

I would recommend this book to be read alound because it's hilarious and kids will enjoy it. It is stupendous.
