Majority of these characters are good and are trying to do good things to help the world, however Tippy Tinkletrousers is quite the opposite and is trying to make the world a very unpleasant place to be. It is down to Captain Underpants and the other characters to stop this from happening.
In the story George and Harold, 2 school boys, are running away from Tippy Tinkletrousers having had dealings with him in the past. They realise that Tippy is from the future so they remember the Banana Cream Pie Paradox, meaning that they can go back to the past and change something will then remain its changed way in the present. This helps them to get away from Tippy Tinkletrousers but not without the help of Captain Underpants who appears on click of their fingers. With action, adventure and a lot of laughs the plot twists and turns until Tippy is banished to the future once more.
I enjoyed all of the story however my favourite part is when Tippy is supposed to make a statue for the prison warden but he makes himself a robot suit to get him out of prison thinking this would make him unstoppable against Captain Underpants and friends.
The book was very funny and entertaining and made me feel like I wanted to read the whole series. This is now on my to do list. I would recommend this book, and the Captain Underpants series, to children that are aged 8-14, especially children who enjoy funny books.
The book also taught me a valuable lesson. Sometimes in the story George and Harold were close to giving in, yet Captain Underpants always encouraged them to persevere and keep trying. This made me realise that, whilst sometimes it is easier to give up and stop trying, it is better to persist as the outcome at the end will always be better. I hope other readers of the book learn the same.
I give this book a 10/10 .
