The series' twelfth entry finds pals George and Harold d their duplicates, Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold ppily taking turns attending school and playing hooky. All's well until gym teacher Mr. Meaner ingests some Zygo-Gogozizzle 24, turns into a superintelligent supervillain, and builds a machine to transform students, including Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold, into model, rule-following children. To stop Mr. Meaner's dastardly plan for global domination, George and Harold must time travel to enlist help from their future, grown-up selves as well as from Captain Underpants (whose own powers may have been compromised) and the Hamsterdactyls. Featuring characteristically wacky and over-the-top escapades, puns, potty humor, snarky-narrator commentary (including a jab at critics of the series' language, vowing to please "Grumpy Old People" e GOP including "topics of interest especially for them. . . . Bob Evans Restaurants, hard candies, FOX News, and gentle-yet-effective laxatives"), abundant cartoon depictions and comics, Flip-O-Ramas, and previous title references, this will prove popular with series fans.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The insane popularity of Pilkey's Captain Underpants series hasn't ebbed with time. A new title will send droves of kids to the shelves, so stock up!

Gr 2&11;4&12; George and Harold, and their doubles, Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold, have a good thing going. Two of them go to school while the other two hide in the tree house and play video games all day&12;then they switch. But when their malicious gym teacher, Mr. Meaner, creates a method of mind control that turns their fellow students into attentive, obedient, perfect children, the future of all humanity is in the boys' hands. The catastrophe is resolved when the boys travel into the future and seek the help of their adult selves. This latest installment features several "flip-o-rama" pages that allow readers to flip quickly back and forth to create an animated effect. Like the other books in this series, the title is a combination of comic book sequences, deeply silly plotlines, and prank-filled humor. The text continues to make fun of teachers, parents, and the elderly. VERDICT When Captain Underpants first arrived on shelves in 1997, there were few books like it. Now, with fun and funny chapter books series like Megan McDonald's "Stink" (Candlewick), Dan Greenburg's "The Zack Files" (Grosset &; Dunlap), and the comic-style adventures of "Geronimo Stilton" (Scholastic), the potty-mouthed caped crusader has competition. Die-hard fans, however, will likely be excited to see this 12th installment.&12; Paula Huddy, The Blake School-Highcroft Campus, Wayzata, MN

From CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS AND THE SENSATIONAL SAGA OF SIR STINKS-A-LOT

Most people in Mr. Meaner's position would use their newfound genius brains to end world hunger and bring peace to humanity. But these were the last things on Mr. Meaner's increasingly magnificent mind. Mr. Meaner was still a gym teacher at heart, you see. And as everyone knows, most gym teachers are inherently evil.

"It occurs to me," said Mr. Meaner, "that our recent problems have all been caused by willful and disobedient children. If we are to rectify this aberration, we must proceed with prudence and acumen!"

"I'm not sure what those words mean," said Ms. Dayken, "but I agree one hundred and thirty nine percent!"

"Me, too," said the other teachers simultaneously.

"Then you must follow my every command," said Mr. Meaner. "You must all return to your jobs and go about your business as usual. Nothing is to look suspicious."

"B-but we want to be evil, too," Mr. Rected whined.

"Patience, my dear minions," said Mr. Meaner with a hideous sneer. "There will be plenty of time for that in the days to come!"
