Captain Underpants and the Tyrannical Retaliation of the Turbo Toilet 2000 by Dav Pilkey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Captain Underpants (#11)
It's been a year long wait to find out what would happen to our friends George and Harold and Book #11 doesn't disappoint. There is a slight mixing up of the usual format which I missed but it is all there just slightly out of order. Thankfully, a comic book starts off with a brief four pages that summarizes books 1-9, then the first chapter spends a couple of pages reminding us where we are after book ten. Book 11 is just as fantastically hyperspeed as the last one, time-travel back and forth, speeding here, speeding there and then the ultimate problem arises when the time traveling results in double sets of our heroes. Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold are living in the same time as the present ones and by book's end all four Harold and George's are in big trouble with the only consolation the announcement of book 12. The book is just as funny and silly as usual and fans will be delighted. Even if you've grown out of the series, you may just want to give this a read to keep up to date with these old friends. Tra-la-la!
