Because The Word “Underwear” Is Funny

If I say to my boys, “Go put some underwear on,” they’ll break out into non-stop giggles. “Haha she said underwear,” they will say as they go running for their bedrooms.

Seriously, try saying that word to your kids and see if they can answer you with a straight face.

My boys love using underwear as a hat, part of their costume and even as a weapon (watch out!).

I think Dav Pilkey was on to something when he started the series, Captain Underpants.

I recently introduced these books to my almost 7-year-old and he is absolutely loving them! A few months ago, he hated anything that had to do with reading.

Now, I can’t get him to put books down! He really enjoyed reading the tenth epic novel, Captain Underpants and the Revolting Revenge of the Radioactive Robo-Boxers. Anytime the word underwear, toilets or Tippy Tinkletrousers was mentioned he would crack up!

Here’s a short description of this book:

George and Harold had been turned into evil zombie nerds. But why didn’t Captain Underpants save the boys from this frightening fate? Because Tippy Tinkletrousers and his time-traveling hijinks prevented George and Harold from creating Captain Underpants in the first place!

If you have a son (or even a daughter who thinks underwear is funny), then they will LOVE this series! I have to say, even for a parent it’s very entertaining.

Today, I’m giving away a Captain Underwear prize pack (valued at $99), over at BabyCenter.

Check it out!

Disclosure: I was sent a book for the purpose of this review. I was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own, and yes my boys really do think the word “underwear” is funny!
