In the fifth "epic novel" about the extraordinary Captain Underpants--"faster than a speeding waistband... more powerful than boxer shorts"--the formidable superhero is under siege by a terrifying new enemy, the merciless bionic-powered Wedgie Woman. Will Captain Underpants overcome his fear of spray starch in time to save the world from the evil schemes of Wedgie Woman? No one knows... except maybe George and Harold, the imaginative fourth-grade troublemakers (imagination is not allowed at Jerome Horwitz Elementary School), who are also the creative minds behind Captain Underpants and Wedgie Woman. You see, it all started (as it usually does) with a comic strip drawn and illustrated by the boys. When their mean teacher Miss Ribble gets her hands on the comic book, their troubles really begin.
Fans who have been eagerly awaiting Book 5 in the series, preceded by such gems as Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space and Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants, will heave a sigh of relief at the appearance of Pilkey's latest tongue-in-cheek superhero adventure novel. Goofier than ever, with plenty of boyish drawings and juvenile humor, this lightweight chapter book is the answer to reluctant (and avid) readers' dreams. If descriptions of Wedgie Woman's bionic hair and the "ubrupt" ending of the "happyness" on the planet of Underpantyworld don't turn grade-schoolers into bookworms, what will? By the way, don't let the quotation from Einstein at the front of the book mislead you; this is lowbrow humor at its very finest. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
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 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' is still one of the best series to get reluctant readers reading.

Dav Pilkey, sometimes I cannot wake my son up in the mornings because he's been sneaking a read of your books late into the night. I have never been happier, or prouder, to bring a series of books into my home.
Spnnung ist in diesen Büchlein drin.
Wenn man einmal angefangen hat zu lesen, kann man nicht es nicht aufhören.
it's easy to read and action for kids.

Pilkey is a brilliant storyteller. The writing is imaginative and challenging. My 5 year old is now breezing through words such as "torrential", "emphasize", "individuality" and "conformity". He and his seven-year-old brother now prefer creating their own comic books to watching television.
Some uptight parents might not want their children exposed to words like "pee-pee", "poop" and "doo-doo". They might also be squeamish about their kids finding out what a "wedgie" is. Those parents might be well advised to lighten up a bit.
But you actually have a chance. Because that guy wearing underpants and an office curtain around his neck is --TRA-LA-LA! --Captain Underpants!
This funny story starts off when the two main characters, George and Harold (probably the most imaginative kids in the entire Captain Underpants world), trick their principal Mr. Krupp into signing a ``will-you-marry-me`` card and delivering it personally to their teacher Ms. Ribble.
Not till the day of the marriage does Mr. Krupp finally tell everyone (including Ms. Ribble) that George and Harold tricked him into giving the card to Ms. Ribble.
The next day, Ms. Ribble told George and Harold that because they made her so mad, she was going to lower their grades from B's and C's to F's and G's (even if there is no such grade as a G).
George and Harold were so mad at Ms. Ribble for doing the grade changing that they took the hypno-ring (from the first book of Captain Underpants ) and hypnotized Ms. Ribble to change their grades - and NOT turn into a Wicked Wedgie Woman, NOT take over the world and NOT try to destroy Captain Underpants .
But then George and Harold find out that the hypno-ring makes women do the opposite of what they=re hypnotized to do!
So now it's up to George , Harold and Captain Underpants to stop the rampaging Wedgie Woman before she takes over the world.
So far there are five Captain Underpants books and another fun activity book and they are all really funny. The one I just told you about is the fifth.
I think the fifth is the best and it deserves a few words. And if I were to put it on a scale of one hundred it would blow the scale up because it's such a great book.
Now you probably are asking , why is it so funny and great ? And I'll answer that right now. The thought of a guy wearing nothing but underpants and a office curtain around his neck saving a city from a Wedgie Woman is hilarious and also it's great when George and Harold find out how to destroy the Wicked Wedgie Woman and when Captain Underpants destroys the evil robots which you=ll find out about and other good reasons if you read the book. The only bad part of the story is that it's too short.
It's good for six-year-olds to eleven-year- olds or twelve-year olds depending on the kind of books you like. Read Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman. It's the greatest book ever!
