Hi there friends,
I’ve been lucky enough to receive a preview copy of the latest, eleventh book in the Captain Underpants series. These have been some of my favourite books as a child, and they’re just as entertaining to read as an adult. These truly are books which enthuse children into finding the wonder of books and begin to develop their want to read for pleasure. When this book is released, it will no doubt really appeal to young boys who may not usually have reading as a first choice. Here are my thoughts on the latest addition to the series:
I received a free eBook copy of this book by the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
As with all of the Captain Underpants books, this is greatly entertaining and laugh out loud funny. This is exactly the type of book which can take reluctant readers from not wanting to pick up a book, to avid readers. The illustrations as always add so much to the story, adding humour, wit and greater detail to the wonderful story. Though this book is the eleventh in the series, you can read this as a stand alone book rather than reading the previous ten before picking this one up! If you have read just a few of the Captain Underpants books as I had prior to reading this, then it’s more than sufficient to pick up and read this book.
This is a great book if you want a laugh, even as an adult! With the customary Captain Underpants hilarious antics with bum jokes, giant robots and talking toilets this will be exactly the kind of book that boys will want to pick up from the shelves at school. The best thing about this series of book are that they make reading fun. As well as all the benefits of reading, the best you will ever find is that reading is fun! Getting children to read for pleasure is one of the best things you can ever do for a child and this is one of those books which can change pupils attitudes towards reading. It’s plain silly and all a bit nonsense really, but who cares! If we spent too much time analysing children’s books our brains would explode.
Great fun, entertaining and laugh out loud funny. A brilliant book to share with children on their journey to reading for pleasure. Well worth a read! You can pre-order a copy of the book on Amazon UK HERE. If you read the book, comment below with your thoughts too! I’d love to hear what you think too!
