George and Harold are two bright yet - shall we say? - precocious young men. Yep, a couple of wise guys. The only thing they enjoy more than playing practical jokes is creating their own comic books, and together, they've created the greatest comic-book superhero in the history of their elementary school: Captain Underpants! George and Harold regularly come against the disapproval of their school principal, mean old Mr. Krupp, but with the help of Captain Underpants, they just might get the upper hand! The books in this series feature Dav Pilkey's own drawings - a running commentary of simple black-and-white illustrations that provide comic-strip appeal on every page.
