mobi Í Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers ð Hardcover read ☆ reflectionslisburnltd ↠ Tra la laaa Captain Underpants is back in an all new epic adventure that's the zaniest funniest outrageousest and time tra Th 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 bullyHold on to your UNDERPANTS the Captain is ba Surprisingly good Once I realized he started publishing again I was both excited and worried expecting of the same Most of the books have followed a very similar and repetitive story pattern While this one has a bit of that for familiarity it very uickly expands the story style in its own fun wayIn particular I worried about how this book includes a past villian I was worried it would be a repetitive retread with no new ideas Luckily I was wrong While I don't fully remember what happened in the previous book it was nearly ten years ago I was drawn in enough that it didn't really matterMost what I didn't like was that the pranks against some bullies were feminine focused as if friendship bracelets and other 'girly' things are insulting I disagree with this style of prank and satire and preferred instead the haunted sense of ghostliness which came from the other interesting pranks like putting spiders in their lockers I also skipped uite a bit of the bullying scenes because of personal experiences I got the idea and I don't agree that it be necessary to portray the issue in such a repetitive and extreme mannerOn the good side of things I was very surprised at the maturation of the author's humour While past books go into how many teachers are insulting to children and abuse their power over these children this book did that and so much What he said about prison seemed very much the kind of things anti authoritarian prison abolitionists would say He also mocks the concept of 'zero tolerance' a harmful policy which specifically targets working class kids and kids of colourHe refers to the worker conditions in prison as 'poorly ventilated sweatshops' and how the people in the penal system are 'constantly bombarded with pointless rules ridiculous discipline random searches metal detectors security cameras and pharmaceuticals designed to make everyone compliant and docile' He says it was a lot like being in an elementary school 'except that the prison had better funding' Wow This is definitely a step in the right direction in the evolution of his work I do wonder how he evolved his views this way as it was very surprising and strange that a popular children's fiction writer would even know about these issues and further to write about them in an interesting and educating wayThe book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger and thankfully I have its seuel with me now to read right after this one I dislike cliffhangers But reading this was good and I'm glad to read

Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy TinkletrousersAn going to jail for the rest of our lives? and changed the course of human historyIn 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 six This was by far the best book in the series It was also the longest book so far at 304 pages Normally I'm able to read this book out loud to my kids in an hour This book took two So why am I giving this particular book 5 stars compared to the others? Well it's got meat in itThis book has two stories going on First there is the continuation of what is going to happen to George and Harold from book 8 They are getting arrested for something they didn't do and we need to find out how they are going to get out of it Just as we are going to find out We get hit with the second story A time warp from Professor Poopy Pants who now calls himself Tippy Tinkletrousers Back in book 4 I believe too lazy to look it up just now Professor Poopy Pants is arrested and sent to prison While in prison he gets on the good side of the warden and builds what the warden thinks is a statue of said warden But in truth it's a robot to help him escape Nice plot twist Once we learn the story of how Professor Poopy Pants has been spending his days in prison while George Harold and Captain Underpants are fighting crime and saving the day the two story lines merge together The Tippy Tinkletrousers story was so engrossing that I literally forgot I was reading a different story at the beginning and was excited and confused at the change of main characters It finished with a great ending and I have to say I'm going to miss reading these books to my kids Only 4 left in the series
