Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space and the Subsequent Assault of the Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds (Captain Underpants, #3)
Hooray for Captain Underpants! Everybody's favorite waistband warrior is back, ready to fight for Truth, Justice, and all that is Pre-Shrunk and Cottony. If you've read Dav Pilkey's first two comic epics, The Adventures of Captain Underpants and Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets, you already know the brave Captain is really just crabby old Principal Krupp, hypnotized into becoming the world's greatest superhero every time someone snaps their fingers. And of course you know the trouble-making hypnotists are none other than Jerome Horwitz Elementary School's two most notorious tricksters, George and Harold ("We rule!" "Me, too!"). Well, George and Harold--surprise, surprise--are at it again. The cranky lunch ladies quit after George and Harold fool them into baking super-volcanic krispy kupcakes that flood the school with gigantic green globs o' goo. Mr. Krupp finds replacements and fast, but he unwittingly hires the tentacled alien trio of Zorx, Klax, and Jennifer in disguise! Will they turn everyone in school into evil zombie nerds? Can George and Harold save the world before it's too late? All seems lost until the diabolical Zorx snaps his... um, tentacles in front of Mr. Krupp, and the power of wedgies comes to the rescue once again. Captain Underpants's third outing is better than ever, with patented Flip-o-Rama animation and wacky bonus comics like "Captain Underpants--Wedgie Wars" and "Captain Underpants and the Night of the Living Lunch Ladies." (Ages 8 to 12) --Paul Hughes

    I thought I will ran out of breath while reading the title of this book. So far, this is the funniest and the silliest I've read in this graphic novel series. Underwear Cave cracked me up and readers will be entertain with the other funny lines in this 3rd installment. If you are suffering due to stress or just want to have a good laugh, then try to read this and the other books in this series.

    I read Captain Underpants. The lunchroom zombie monsters went to steal the Captain Underpants' cave and he almost eaten by a weed monster. I don't like the book because I don't like reading.

This time featuring aliens, evil lunch ladies, zombie nerds, and of course Captain Underpants!So, I was at a book store last Saturday when, while walking through the second-hand section, I came across this book and 2 of his friends. Of course I had to bring them with me, I always wanted to continue reading this series, but always forgot to buy them from Amazon. Our duo (George and Harold) love pranking/making jokes about people. They either do this in real life or they write comics about it. Often I am not all too happy when pranks/jokes go far, but with George and Harold? I just couldn't be mad at them. Maybe it helps that they do try to save the world when that situation arises + quite often their pranks/jokes are funny and people seem to like it (well, OK, the children like it, the adults don't, but that is generally how it goes). Though I have to say the comic about the lunch ladies went a bit too far, at least for me. I have to say I loved their prank with the exploding cupcake mix (though do I want to know why the mix was green?). How those lunch ladies didn't notice the ingredients were a bit strange... oh well, if the food is really that terrible, I guess they wouldn't know a fake recipe from a real one. The book is filled with several comics (which I loved, it made the book even more fun to read), and also 2 flip-o-rama. I still love those flip-o-rama's, it works so much better to flip through it, see the action happen, then that they would have written/drawn it out in a comic. The aliens (Zorx, Klax, and Jennifer (yes, Jennifer)) were great villains, their plans were pretty great, though of course they are no match for Harold and George and Captain Underpants. But I still had a big laugh at the names of the juices (Super Evil Rapid Growth juice), though I loved that they also had milk, just milk, in their refrigerator. Captain Underpants was a bit so-so in this one, mostly to do with several things (which I can't tell because it would spoil things). Though I have to say he regained his awesomeness near the end again. There is also some fourth wall breaking, which I just love. More books should do that. The art is still perfect, it just fits so well with the series. A bit silly, a bit weird. :PAlso plus points to the amazing title!All in all, I would recommend this book, and I will be reading the other books I have soon!Review first posted at https://twirlingbookprincess.com/

He eagerly snatches up the new book and runs over to show us which new sign Harold and George are going to mix up and turn into something gross this time. We've even caught him reading his Captain Underpants books—by choice! Now our daughter loves reading—anything--so getting her engaged isn't as hard. She, too, loves these books for their high giggle factor. In this third book (intimidatingly titled “Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space (and the Subsequent Assault of the Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds)” ) finally brings Harold and George, creators of both the comic and real Captain Underpants and major prankster, into full hero roles as one of their pranks (a sciency one!) leads to them being the only students not turned into evil zombie nerds by alien invaders. So they and their principal, Mr. Krupp as his heroic alter ego, Captain Underpants, must save the world, and the school, from total destruction. Despite their sometimes destructive and often naughty ways it's stories like this which prove Harold and George and sweeties (and heroes) at heart. This is probably our favorite Captain Underpants story so far. Recommended for: 6-12

    I enjoyed this book because I like Captain Underpants books. I did not like this book because I did not like the part when a very evil giant dandelion almost ate Captain Underpants, George, and Harold. I also did not like this book because I do not like naughty cafeteria ladies and evil zombie nerds.

    I loved these books as a kid, and so far, reading them as an adult is proving a very different experience. However, I did find myself rooting for the boys when they were trapped in the alien Space thingy, and, that sort of mind-numbing suspense is what I’m after before bed.

    Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space (and the Subsequent Assault of the Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds) is about the two lovable troublemakers; George and Harold who get into more trouble than I think they know what to do with. In this particular installation, a prank they play on the lunch ladies causes them to quit and their spots to be filled by none other than Zorx, Klax and Jennifer who are evil aliens. George and Harold notice Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space (and the Subsequent Assault of the Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds) is about the two lovable troublemakers; George and Harold who get into more trouble than I think they know what to do with. In this particular installation, a prank they play on the lunch ladies causes them to quit and their spots to be filled by none other than Zorx, Klax and Jennifer who are evil aliens. George and Harold notice something weird happening to everyone eating the lunchroom food and they quickly find out what the problem is. They need to act fast to save the world and they do just that with a combination of flip-o-rama fight scenes and some help from captain underpants. Captain Underpants... where to begin? Children are enthralled by Captain Underpants in all of his humorous glory. While I never read the books as a child, reading one now helps me see why children love him. This book was very funny and had me laughing out loud sometimes. The illustrations were related to the story line and helped to illustrate nicely. The pictures were simple black and white but comic book style which enhanced the story immensely. Children who have trouble reading or need visual cues would love this book and any graphic novel really because it helps combine increasing amounts of text with pictures which are a familiar aspect of children's literature.While I may not use this in my classroom, I would definitely encourage my student to read this book or others like it for it's comic relief and easy read style. I would not use it in my classroom because there is no real educational value but it is important for children to read for enjoyment not just education which is why I would still encourage my students to read these books. Overall it was really just a fun read for me and I know children feel the same way.

To save the school cafeteria (which has a ring of irony since NO ONE 6-12 cares enough to save the cafeteria!) they need the Ultimate Cottony-Plush Hero now!!! The kids have also turned into NERD ZOMBIES!! They come into the lunch area as usual (girls dress as Miley, boys are copies of Usher, you get the idea) and emerge as Nerdy shadows of themselves (a mix-blend of Buddy Holly and Gollum!)!

Interestingly, his dad obliged with chapter after chapter after chapter (and was heard to say 'that chapter was really short so how about another one?'), so I'm guessing he was enjoying it as well!I foresee that there will be more Captain Underpants books passing through our house over the next few years.

With all the parlous events Captain Underpants is the ne plus ultra superhero and deals with the events without any torpor.All in all, you'd have to be pusillanimous to avoid this pulchritudinous book.

Whilst it is not my all-time favourite childhood read I can still recall all the details of this one meaning it certainly left a lasting impression upon my young mind.

There's a comfort for the kids in certain repeated elements (like "but before I can tell you that story, I need to tell you this story..." or the boys rearranging letters on school noticeboards). I suppose there's a fair amount of text (a Step 4 takes us 20 mins to read whereas these we read over two days) but it also has comics (as written by the main characters) and the awesome FLIP-O-RAMA sections. As an adult, I love the teacher's names (all of which are phonetic puns) and that the language isn't dumbed down; Miss 3 loves hearing the big words and now knows new words like 'rage' means 'angry'. I think the books have been published in both B&W and colour; luck of the draw for us which we get from the library but definitely cooler in full colour!Miss 3 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors.

I would give it 100 votes or an A+. It is kind of abnormal. It has flip-o-rama that is super amusing. I think it is engaging. The mammoth Dandelion of Fate is terrifying and abnormal looking. The outsiders are as well. They are awesome delineations. The craftsman is awesome. I prescribe this book for second to fifth graders since it is a great book by Dav Pilkey. It comes in both English and Spanish. It is entertaining.

    Ok. Now, it's just not funny any more. It's still beloved by the little ones, but I'm spending more and more of my time explaining how "destructive" does not equal "funny". Also in this installment, I had to explain "stereotypes" when asked why all the lunch ladies were old women, why the school secretary was an old woman, and what nerds were anyway.I get that stereotypes are funny because they reduce people to less than people. But little ones today are smarter than that. Thank goodness.

    I think I broke some record for myself with a book having the longest title. This book is cute, but problematic. It's over with far too fast. The problems are dealt with way too easily. And, how did Harold and George know that the "lunch ladies" were from outer space before even seeing their tentacles or space ship? I do like that the kids occasionally point out they seem to know they are in a book. It makes for a silly inclusion. Kind of like SpongeBob with similar references to each cartoon be I think I broke some record for myself with a book having the longest title. This book is cute, but problematic.
