In my opinion, The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey is a book you can’t miss! To begin with, the author Dav Pilkey is, very humorous. For example, this is what people thought Captain Underpants was, “Look up in the sky, it’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s an egg salad sandwich!” Captain Underpants replied, “No way, I am... Captain Underpants!” Also, you can learn to use your imagination. For example, George and Harold make comic book characters that nobody can think of like, Captain Underpants and Dr. Diaper. Most importantly, it teaches you about consequences. For instance, George and Harold did a really horrible prank and had to do chores as a consequence. In conclusion, The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pikey is definitely a book you can not miss!
If you have a creative mind you will love the book Captain Underpants. Do you enjoy comics? I give this book five stars for the great lessons it teaches and for its humor. I highly recommend Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey, if you like super heroes. There is no doubt, you have to read this book and remember to… “Never underestimate the power of underwear!”
