In his ninth epic Captain Underpants novel, Dav Pilkey takes readers back in time to the carefree days of kindergarten, when the worst thing heroes George and Harold had to face was NOT an evil mad scientist or an alien cafeteria lady but a sixth-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 bully.
“I’m delighted to be back with George, Harold, and the gang,” said Dav Pilkey. “I’ve had so much fun writing and drawing their latest adventure, and I hope kids enjoy it too.”
