It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Super Diaper Baby!
SUPER DIAPER BABY 2: THE INVASION OF THE POTTY SNATCHERS by Dav Pilkey(Scholastic 2011) features those mischievous kids from the Captain Underpants books, George and Harold, and their creation, Super Diaper Baby. As this story opens, George and Harold are being berated by their principal for writing a book all about Super Diaper Baby and a villain which is a giant piece of poop. George and Harold decide it is time for a new adventure and so create Dr. Dinkle who ends up as a giant ball of urine (don't ask). With a spot-on parody of HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS, Dr. Dinkle steals the toilets of the town. It is up to Super Diaper Baby and his sidekick, Diaper Dog, to save the dog. Puns, jokes, pee: all the ingredients for a fabulously funny book. <549>
