Synopsis

Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman Colour Edition by Dav Pilkey

George and Harold are having a normal kind of week. Yesterday they found out they were going to flunk fourth grade. Today they've created an evil, super-powerful monster. She's mean. She's got a fake-fur Evil Baddie costume - and she's having a REALLY bad hair day. With the help of her robots, the Wicked Wedgie Woman is on a mission to take over the world ... and she'll give a whopping wedgie to anyone who stands in her way! Watch out!

Reviews

Trying to salvage failing grades, George and Harold use their handy 3-D Hypno Ring on temagant teacher Ms. Ribble--and succeed only in creating a supervillain with a medusa-like 'do and a yen to conquer the world with wedgie power. Using a pair of robot of sidekicks and plenty of spray starch, she even overcomes Captain Underpants. Is it curtains (or rather, wedgies) for all of us? Can the redoubtable fourth graders rescue the Waistband Warrior (a.k.a. Principal Krupp) and find a way to save the day? Well, duh. Not, of course, without an epic battle waged in low-budget Flip-O-Rama, plus no fewer than three homemade comics, including and Origin of Captain Underpants in which we learn that his home planet of Underpantyworld was destroyed by the. . . wait for it. . . Starch Ship Enterprize. As in the previous four episodes, neither the pace nor the funky humor ( Diapers and toilets and poop . . . oh my! ) lets up for a moment. Pilkey is still having entirely too much fun with this popular series, which continues to careen along with nary a whiff of staleness.---Kirkus Reviews, July 1st 2001 Fans need not worry. Pilkey's imagination shows no sign of flagging here. When George and Harold's evil teacher announces her departure, she forces the class to write Happy Retirement cards for her. Instead, the two boys create a comic book in which they turn Ms. Ribble into the titular 'Wicked Wedgie Woman. She sees the book, tells them that they are not allowed to use their imagination in school, and sends them posthaste to the principal. The two friends seize the opportunity to get him to sign a blank card to which they add his protestations of love for Ms. Ribble. Hilarious wedding high jinks ensue (but no marriage). To prevent the villainous woman from retaliation, the protagonists hypnotize her with their 3-D Hypno- Ring. Their plan backfires and a cosmic battle follows, complete with the familiar Flip-O-Rama(TM) feature. Among the highlights of this book is an alliterative post-wedding food fight in which, for example, the creamy candied carrots clobbered the kindergarteners. There is a great deal of laug-out-loud humor that will appeal to a wide audience. Captain Underpants
