Captain Underpants #10: Revolting Revenge of the Radioactive Robo-Boxers product reviews

When we last saw our heroes, George and Harold, they had been turned into evil zombie nerds doomed to roam a devastated, post-apocalyptic planet for all eternity.

But why, you might ask, didn't the amazing Captain Underpants save the boys from this frightening fate? Because Tippy Tinkletrousers and his timetravelling hijinks prevented George and Harold from creating Captain Underpants in the first place! Now, having changed the course of human history forever, they'll have to figure out a way to change it back.

Could this be the end for Captain Underpants?

NOTE: In July 2014 the new paperback edition was released.

I have only ever read one Captain Underpants book before the first and original book and it made me laugh aloud. My 9 year old nephew loves these books and has a few that he collects so I thought I would review these books with the idea of passing them on to him. His school teacher has told his mum she is not a fan of Captain Underpants book so I was really curious to read to see what a school teacher might not like. I am left thinking perhaps she hasn't actually read one properly as they are actually really good.

Apart from the odd purposelly mis spelt word or poor grammar in the cartoon frames there is nothing that bad about the books, the storyline was good and the actual story itself was completely grammatically correct. The good thing that perhaps his teacher should now is that it gets him excited about reading as he is actually enjoying the reading content. For a boy who is not a strong reader this is the most important part in my eyes is that he is picking a book up actually wanting to read it.

I haven't read the other books in the series except for one but that was okay I could still follow on with the story in this book as things were recapped well so I never thought I didn't know what was going on. In this book they must travel back in time to create captain underpants as the end of the last book and the time travelling meant they didn't even create captain underpants in the first place. Lots of time travelling back and forth over past books saw lots of action and plenty of laughs.

Plenty of cool pictures and comic type strips to look at which add a lot of interest in this book too I thought they were very cleverly done. I can't wait to give this book to my nephew as I know he will probably laugh even more than I did.

I laughed so much at the authors writing about why adults hate it when kids are having fun, apparently us adults think it's a lot easier to stomp out someone else's fun than it is to reflect on our own lives and figure out where it all went so miserably wrong. It's just too depressing for grown-ups to ponder all the decades of compromises, failures, laziness, fear, and regrettable choices that slowly transformed them from running, jumping, laughing, fun-loving kids into grumpy, complaining, calorie-counting, easily offended, peace-and-quiet-demanding grouches.

I am sure this is probably the way kids feel that parents are fun stealing grouches I know my own daughter would probably believe everything the book was saying.

My 6 year old is a big Captain Underpants fan, we have a couple of the books here at home and he often chooses them at the Library. Getting him to read is often a struggle but not with The Captain Underpants stories. I like that we can read them together or he can read them for the most part on his own. Occasionally there are words that are out of his vocabulary which tests his skills and he has been taught to use the dictionary for words he is unsure on so it is a great learning curve for him too which as a parent is fantastic.

I enjoy the humour that is portrayed that is fun for kids and gets them to enjoy to read. The chapters are just the right length I feel. They are quite short so don't drag on & on. They certainly keep my sons attention which is an accomplishment in its self! The illustrations are black and white and of a comic style. This suits the book entirely and the pictures are lots of fun.

I highly recommend this series and Mr 6 is already asking for more for his birthday. Reading is essential in any child's development books like Captain Underpants that make reading fun are ideal!

This was my first introduction to Captain Underpants. But I have to say I was very impressed. Even though this was book 10 in the series, I didn't feel like I had to go back and read the others. Most stuff that needed explaining was explained as we came to it. The author did a good job of making sure we knew what was going on at each turn. But not in a way that got too repetitive and boring. It was a great balance.

I read this book over the course of a week to my daughter as bedtime story and an activity to do while baby was in bed for naps. She actually asked if we could read it, and even when we finished she asked to re-read it right away. She has got me reading it again to her already! That says a lot to me about how she enjoyed the book. I liked that the chapters are nice and short. The humour is really good. The language is quite advanced in my opinion. They use a lot of describing words that aren't used a lot in kid's novels. This is a good thing though, because it helps stretch your child's vocabulary.

The comic book style chapters were fun to read. They are quick to work through, but also allows the reader to think about what is happening and make up their own narrative. There are also these cool flippy pages that allow you to animate (kinda) the fight scenes. We loved these. Though I did accidently rip one of the pages slightly as I was doing the flipping. I'm a bit angry at myself for that but I'm going to re-enforce the pages with tape to make sure they last! Overall, really impressed with this book and will be looking to try others in the series.
