Review by Booklist Reviews

Gr. 3-6. For those who love Captain Underpants, this is vintage. For those who don't . . . well, you know. This time out, George Beard and Harold Hutchins create a comic book about their teacher, Mrs. Ribble, whom they christen the Wicked Wedgie Woman. Is there any point in recounting the plot? Suffice it to say, somehow the boys engineer Mrs. Ribble's transformation for real. Along the way, readers will get plenty of action, underwear, and robots, all stuck together with potty words and other stupid stuff. The comic strip can be clever, although some adults will object to the miserable spelling the boys use: advenchures, inapropreate, askidentelly. Most of the black-and-white illustrations are wild and woolly, with someone being stomped, splashed, shaken, or screamed at in a good many of the pictures. Familiar fare for a devoted fan base.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 2-5-Fans need not worry. Pilkey's imagination shows no sign of flagging here. When George and Harold's evil teacher announces her departure, she forces the class to write "Happy Retirement" cards for her. Instead, the two boys create a comic book in which they turn Ms. Ribble into the titular "Wicked Wedgie Woman." She sees the book, tells them that they are not allowed to use their imagination in school, and sends them posthaste to the principal. The two friends seize the opportunity to get him to sign a blank card to which they add his protestations of love for Ms. Ribble. Hilarious wedding high jinks ensue (but no marriage). To prevent the villainous woman from retaliating, the protagonists hypnotize her with their 3-D Hypno-Ring. Their plan backfires and a cosmic battle follows, complete with the familiar Flip-O-Rama feature. Among the highlights of this book is an alliterative post-wedding food fight in which, for example, the "creamy candied carrots clobbered the kindergarteners." There is a great deal of laugh-out-loud humor that will appeal to a wide audience. "Captain Underpants" is still one of the best series to get reluctant readers reading.-Tim Wadham, Maricopa County Library District, Phoenix, AZ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

George and Harold are always good at using their imaginations, and that drives their mean homeroom teacher, Ms. Ribble, crazy! But this time, they've come up with much more than a silly prank -- they've accidentally created a MONSTER! With her horrendous hairdo and two rabid robots, Wedgie Woman is well on her way to world domination, and only the Waistband Warrior can stop her!
