Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

George and Harold have played a trick or two on nearly everyone at Jerome Horwitz Elementary. When their latest prank causes the school's cranky cafeteria ladies to quit, Mr. Krupp hires a trio of unusual replacements -- who happen to look an awful lot like aliens! Will that curtain-caped crusader, Captain Underpants, save the day once more? Or will those outer-space cafeteria ladies have him for lunch?

Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-Captain Underpants is back (and stronger than ever thanks to some "extra-strength super power juice"). Jerome Horwitz Elementary School is invaded by three "incredibly naughty cafeteria ladies" who are really hideously evil aliens in disguise. Their dastardly plan is to take over Earth by turning its inhabitants into giant zombie nerds starting with the children of Piqua, OH. Harold, George, and Captain Underpants once again save the day with quick thinking and Wedgie Power. Pilkey's hilarious black-and-white pencil cartoons complement the comic humor of the text. Added to the fun are the ever-present Flip-O-Rama pages and a zany Captain Underpants comic. Whether first-time readers of this series or avid fans, children will enjoy this outrageously funny adventure.-Krista Grosick, Cuyahoga County Public Library, OH (c) Copyright 2010.

Horn Book Review

Space aliens land their ship on the roof of Horwitz Elementary and get jobs as lunchroom ladies. Their plot to take over the world starts by turning the student body into zombie nerds with taped eyeglasses and pocket protectors. Enter Captain Underpants (a.k.a. Principal Krupp) who, assisted by young cut-ups George and Harold, saves the day. Silly? You bet. But also laugh-out-loud funny. From HORN BOOK Spring 2000, (c) Copyright 2010.
