Will good trump evil yet again? *cue cheesy music* Neo laughed out loud many times and loved the "quick flips" found at the end of each chapter. An interesting intro to the world of comics and Underpants branch-offs.

    Dav Pilkey is a witty writer and followers of the Captain Underpants series already knew that. In this spin-off, there are undeniably funny scenes and names such as Starbutts and Deputy Doo-doo. If you want a good laugh, you must read this series as well as the author's other works. This is categorized under children's books, but I reckon that this is more appropriate for readers 12 and above.

    Before you assume I regressed to that of an eight-year-old boy's maturity level, know that I have a special eight-year-old boy in my life who begs me every night to read to him. Based on the company alone I would have rated the book five stars. But there is a lot of potty humor ("Deputy Doo-Doo") and fart jokes, and under Aspiring Teacher Quibbles, I'm placing the issue of purposefully misspelled words. Grr!

Overall, it was a fun dabble into a well-illustrated graphic novel for children.

    Dav Pilkey is a children's literature genius. From beginning to end, as a child I have loved the Captain Underpants series, and now reading the spin-off Super Diaper Baby, I am still brought to tears of laughter as I turn each page.

From beginning to end, as a child I have loved the Captain Underpants series, and now reading the spin-off Super Diaper Baby, I am still brought to tears of laughter as I turn each page. Let me begin by saying this: I read this book not solely for entertainment/recreation, but with a critical eye in the likes of suggesting children's literature to parents. Dav is a master story-teller. It is the way he writes, the style of his illustrations and the choice of words that makes Super Diaper Baby so viable for children. Pilkey makes sure his characters don't come off as an adult talking to a child about what a child is (which, let's face it, nearly 100% of children's literature books are). His stories don't come off as overtly moralizing, even though they do have some moral concepts intertwined within them (the book at hand is about good citizenship for the community). Super Diaper Baby is so genius because it's written from a child's point of view. A comic written by Pilkey's well known characters George and Harold, the book is written the way a child would write. Therefore, children who read this book will relate to it. I have known parents and teachers who especially hate and despise the books (especially Diaper Baby) and won't let their students read them because of the grammatical errors. I completely disagree. I think that students will learn from the grammar Pilkey uses. If I were a teacher, I would make this story mandatory reading, go through and find all of the grammar errors and correct them. Either way, Super Diaper Baby is just another amazing story by an amazing story teller. The adventures that Super Diaper Baby and his dog will literally make you "Laff" out loud.

    I love it! Billy gets the spank of life but the doctor let go of him & Billy flew out the window. Billy drank Super Power Juice and he got super powers. At the end it was a happy ending. Such a great book. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

    this book was about a baby and he drank some juice that made him have super powers and he had to fight pee army and a giant poop and he won and there were some cool flip o ramas because it would be like him catching his dad when he was falling of a tree and this book was funny.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It was a great book and everything, but i think the villain turning into a radioactive giant piece of poo is a bit far. It did have fun characters and a great plot though, I would read it again.

    This book is hilarious. I am still wiping the tears from eyes. It is entirely in comic book form and written by two kids (although in teeny tiny print, Dav Pilkey tries to take all the credit.) The only thing I don't like is that their spelling is atrocious. I gess I am a purfekshionist. When we finished, my son said he wants book number two. (Wait, or was this Book Number Two? Tee hee. Tee hee. You have to read the book to get the joke.) Anyway, he wants to keep giving our money to Dav Pilkey... This book is hilarious. I am still wiping the tears from eyes.

    This is the very last book we own by Dav Pilkey. Out of the three series we own this is my least favorite. The villain of this story is an evil cowboy that turns into a huge turd. Not exaggerating. Captain Underpants has a cameo. I don’t want to hate on this series just yet. There is a book 2. However, I didn’t find this first story to be unique or funny. I love potty humor, but this one was pretty lame. Stick to Captain Underpants or Dogman where there is character growth and good morals.

There are a couple of jokes that are there simply for the parent who will be reading this aloud that got a good guffaw from me. Captain Underpants fans will love this and now I'm off to read the sequel! Great fun read!

    The comedy sparkles as usual when George Beard and Harold Hutchins create another superhero, Super Diaper Baby, for their latest comic book. Billy Hoskins is normal at birth. A careless mistake by the delivery doctor could have led to an immediate and grim conclusion to Billy's life, but an act of sheerest coincidence saves him when Deputy Dangerous and his canine lackey, Danger Dog, zoom by outside the hospital at exactly the right moment.

Billy Hoskins is normal at birth. A careless mistake by the delivery doctor could have led to an immediate and grim conclusion to Billy's life, but an act of sheerest coincidence saves him when Deputy Dangerous and his canine lackey, Danger Dog, zoom by outside the hospital at exactly the right moment. The villains had just entrapped Captain Underpants and stolen his superpowers, converting them into a liquid they could drink to take on those powers. But fate, in the form of newborn Billy, intervenes. He falls out the high hospital window right into the container of superpower liquid, drinking it and gaining superhuman abilities. The baby dishes out swift comeuppance to Deputy Dangerous, and Billy's parents take their son home. Deputy Dangerous escapes jail, as villains do, and sets to work stealing Super Diaper Baby's powers. After inventing a crib with a built-in disguised transfer helmet, Deputy "Undangerous" and "Safety Dog" deliver it to Billy's parents, who happily accept. That night, as Deputy Dangerous links in to his transceiver to absorb Billy's powers, something goes wrong. Something...gross. The deputy is turned not into a supervillain, but into the baby's excrement. Deputy Dangerous vows revenge for this ignominy. Still a brilliant inventor, he constructs the Robo-Ant 2000 to wreck the world. With Captain Underpants out of commission, who has the strength to defeat the gigantic robot? Super Diaper Baby, of course. Billy is getting the better of the enemy bot until it nabs him and throws him into a huge nuclear tower. The radiation will kill him unless another hero emerges to rescue the courageous baby. Will this hero arrive in time? "Safety Dog" would rather be sidekick to Billy than Deputy Dangerous, so he joins the Hoskins family and adopts the name "Diaper Dog". But the threat from Deputy Dangerous isn't over. Still in fecal form, the villain breaks out for one last crime spree, only now he's grown to titanic proportions from the radiation in the previous episode. He can crush buildings, step on people, and Super Diaper Baby and Diaper Dog can't even hit him because he's so saturated with radiation that they wouldn't survive the contact. They have to be smart and make the villain defeat himself, and then carefully remove him to where he can never do harm again. It's a job well done for Billy and his dog, whose proud parents welcome them home from their noble adventure. Dav Pilkey is a comedic savant. The humor in The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby is funnier because of the way it's presented, as a story by two kids whose depictions of adult characters, especially, are hilariously skewed. The jokes tip the scale a little further in the direction of grossness than I prefer, but it's tolerable even for someone like me who has a weak stomach. And there's more than just humor to the book: there's a message of nonconformity in George and Harold's part. The school faculty is always on their case because they're rowdy and their humor can be inappropriate, but George and Harold are clever kids who need to learn in a way that stimulates their unique brains. If the teachers were to read their comics without bias, they'd recognize how smart the young storytellers are. It's a reminder for us to keep an open mind toward people who think differently. The origin of Super Diaper Baby and Diaper Dog is hysterically funny, and I want more. If you feel the same way, head over to Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers, and I'll see you there.

    It is amazing that I read it many times but still can get enough of it! I really like this book because it describes many things at the same time. Comedy, action, laughs, and many more. I would definitely recommend this to other people to read.

    I thought this book was good. When I started to read this book I knew right away it was going to be funny and cool. Some parts were just silly but also hilarious. This time they made super diaper baby and also super diaper dog I think that's pretty cool. I thought this book was good.

As they mope over this assignment, George is struck by a great idea: Why not create a new super hero and write about him? The boys go home and create the greatest world protector ever known to potty training, Super Diaper Baby. Super diaper baby is easily known as a graphic novel because of it's formatting of the story. The story is told in a comic book setting. The pictures are mostly in black and white and in a rough sketch formatting. It is simple enough that the author is able to continuously make quick fast sketches to keep the story going. The story is clearly for children in elementary school due to the humor of the story.

Summary: In order to get out of trouble, two fourth graders named George and Harold create a book on good citizenship that involves a new hero. The book features Bill and Mary Hoskins who give birth to a baby boy named Billy around the same time that Deputy Dangerous and Danger Dog are draining Captain Underpants of his powers into liquid form. Danger Dog manages to only drink half of the liquid due to the arrival of the police. At the hospital, the attending doctor manages to send baby Billy flying out of the window, who lands in the liquid contain Captain Underpants’ secret powers. Billy drinks the juice, gaining the powers. Billy eventually returns to the maternity ward to be reunited with his parents. A power struggle persists between Billy and Danger Dog and Deputy Dangerous. At the end of it all, Captain Underpants’ powers are restored. This book wasn’t fancied too much by Mr. Krupp. 4. I think this book hits the nail on the head in terms of of how fourth graders think. It’s interesting that the book’s narrative is a story told by fourth graders because it makes it more personable for young readers. The plot of the book within the book is very different, but it’s adventurous and funny, and is sure to captivate any young reader. 5. Uses in the classroom: -The students can design a short graphic story. -The students can create their own new superhero. -The students can compare and contrast a villain to the hero.

    We bought this book used. If your kids (or you) like the Captain Underpants series it's only a matter of time before you find this book. A side growth of Pilkey's much-loved series Super Diaper Baby is written in the style used to show George and Harold's comics in the Captain Underpants books, and even features a cameo from the main man himself. Outside of that this book is a 125 page poop joke. If you couldn't handle the gross outs and juvenile jokes of the original series then avoid this one. We bought this book used.

But well, though gross (the main bad guy gets turned into poop pretty early in and the jokes just spiral from there) my kids thought this one was hilarious (and kept correcting me that Dav Pilkey was the author, not Harold and George.) Mom and Dad, however, were less amused so any re-read value here will be kids only. Altogether it wasn't bad, Pilkey does an excellent job of nailing the kid mindset (the same kind of maturity range that Nickelodeon is also an expert at reaching). The book is filthy fun, but at its heart it's encouraging silliness, doing the right thing and true creativity. However it's probably not a great choice for public or school collections as the subject matter is bound to be fertile (get it?) for causing problems with sensitive kids or picky parents. Teachers and public librarians are better off sticking with the Captain Underpants books and letting fans pick this one up at the store. Contains: LOTS of poop jokes (visual and language-based)

Kids will think it is hilarious that the entire novel is centered around underwear and using the bathroom. This silliness will get them interested in reading the book as they will be able to laugh along the way. The fact that it is a graphic novel so includes so many pictures will interest them in reading the book as well. 5.)

    is the first children's graphic novel that I have ever read, and while it was a solid read and had some funny moments, I felt that the whole story and concept was quite predictable, even for a book aimed at children.

This book would definitely be recommended towards early readers, maybe in the 1st - 3rd grade range, as they would definitely appreciate the humor and jokes in the book, boys especially. The book was also written quite cleverly, with the two "authors" being kids in school themselves, so it could also spur on young readers to try writing their own graphic novels, which is always a good thing.
