Kids’ Club Review by Sofia: Captain UnderPants And the attack of the talking toilets

Captain UnderPants And the attack of the talking toilets, by Dav Pilkey

Two eight year old boys named George and Harold (they’re BFFs) accidentally create an army of talking toilets that want to destroy the city.
A great part of this book is the Flip-o-rama because it gives you a picture in your mind and you can make your ownSound affects while you flip the pages!
This book has no bad language so it is appropriate for all ages from 6 and older.

This is an extremely funny book with quite mischievous characters.

The moral of the story is: Never use things you don’t know about.

Captain Underpants and the attack of the Talking toilets, by Dav Pilkey

Some parts are very funny. There were these naughty kids called George and Harold. The story is all about toilets eating other people. Captain underpants got eaten by a toilet. The moral lesson is never copy bad people.

Top 10 Children’s Fiction Summer 2018

Great children’s series with new additions! Author Rachel Renee Russell wrote her first book when she was still at school, she was around 10 years old! It was a birthday gift for her brothers.  The Dork Diaries books are inspired by her daughter Nikki and Erin.  Does one of those those names seem familiar?  Russell credits her daughters in authoring the books. Cool!

Have you ever written a book for anyone’s birthday?  It would be a such a great gift.  Or an terrible one if you wrote awful things. Maybe don’t write terrible things!

But definitely check out these popular authors for some great ideas:

 

  1. Diary of a wimpy kid, by Jeff Kinney
  2. Captain Underpants, by Dav Pilkey
  3. Storey Treehouse series, by Andy Griffiths
  4. Tom Gates, by Liz Pichon
  5. Dork Diaries, by Rachel Renée Russell
  6. The World’s Worst Children, by David Walliams
  7. Fantastic beasts and where to find them, by J. K. Rowling
  8. Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban,  by J. K. Rowling
  9. Magnus Chase and the ship of the dead, by Rick Riordan
  10. The bad book, by Andy Griffiths

Captain Underpants and the preposterous plight of the Purple Potty people : the eighth epic novel byCaptain Underpants and the preposterous plight of the Purple Potty people : the eighth epic novel by, by Dav Pilkey (1966-)

These books are really good, funny and really entertaining. I like how theres drawings throughout the book and the author gets straight into the story. These books are probably more for boys but some girls could enjoy this too. I would recommend this book ages 6+
