Review: Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-A-Lot

Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-A-Lot
Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-A-Lot by Dav Pilkey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So, there’s a lot to love here. There were laugh aloud and read out loud moments. But I couldn’t shake the thought that Pilkey was writing more here for the GOPs (grumpy old people) than for the kids and his fans. The language feels angry rather than mischievous and jubilant. The story line puts Captain Underpants to bed, perhaps for the last time. Is this Captain Underpants’ Contractual Obligation Album? All the others in the series are awesome fabulous hilarious so, please, read those, and all the love in the world to Dav for keeping kids excited about reading for more than a decade.
