Tickle the funny bone
CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS AND THE REVOLTING REVENGE OF THE RADIOACTIVE ROBO-BOXERS by Dav Pilkey. Scholastic, 2013.
In the tenth epic novel, Harold and George have to go back into time to prevent the end of the world. Time travel looks easier than it really is. Of course, having Tippy Tinkletrousers and tiny Tippy to contend with are a large part of the problems the boys encounter. Flip-o-rama is here again (hurray for flip-o-rama) and the levels of humor range from the low level bodily function humor to references some younger reader will not "get." This series remains a guilty pleasure of mine and my grown up grandkids, too.
