Horn Book Guide Reviews
Devised as a comic book created by George and Harold (stars of the Captain Underpants series), this graphic novel--replete with kidlike misspellings and purposefully amateurish art--concerns an infant superhero and his nemesis, Deputy Dangerous, who is transformed into ""a piece of poo!"" The flip-action gimmick is overused, but kids will be laughing too hard to care. Copyright 2002 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Gr 2-5-Another goofy, gross-out selection from a popular author. In this, their first graphic novel, Harold and George are caught in the act of skateboarding over ketchup packets in the gym and ordered by Principal Krupp to write an essay on good citizenship. After strict instructions against turning in another "Captain Underpants" comic book, the boys decide to create a new superhero. When super power juice is sucked out of Captain Underpants by the evil Deputy Dangerous, it appears that all is lost. However, the potent liquid is ingested by a newborn baby and "Super Diaper Baby" is born. In a plot to recapture the juice from the infant, Deputy Dangerous inadvertently becomes "Deputy Doo-Doo" when he is turned into a giant "poop" by his own invention. Where do the heroes take him? "Why Uranus, of course!" Puns, jokes about bodily functions, and ludicrous misspellings will keep children who enjoy this level of comedy suitably entertained. ("What's the difference between boogers and broccoli? Kids won't eat broccoli.") Any library with a "Captain Underpants" (Scholastic) following will want to own multiple copies of this title as well.-Piper L.
