    "Whether "Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets" is worth your time depends on your sense of humor. It's mostly targeted to the middle grade audience. The jokes are quite funny sometimes but they can be gross too. Lower your expectations until you pick it up and maybe, just maybe you can find some entertainment value in it. "

    "Diary of a Wimpy kid? This book was all right.It seemed geared toward small kids really. If that's your thing,then, I guess you know best. I was a little underwhelmed. I'd heard such good things, but this left me feeling, meh. Too bad. Guess I'll read something a little more challenging next time!"

    "After researching the best funny novels for young adults and middle-grade readers, I was recommended to try The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey. The story is about Captain Underpants, a former school principal turned crime-fighting, wedgie-dodging superhero, uses his wacky talents to outwit the evil Dr. Nappy. My child just loves this adventurous tale!"

    "This was a great book that has a lot of humor and an easy read. With that being said it hits on a lot of sensitive topics that are great for younger readers to think about. I really enjoyed this read and am looking forward to discussing it with my son who is a High School freshman and is reading it for his English class this year."
