If you didn’t get enough Super Diaper Baby (A.K.A. Billy) don’t worry! Super Diaper Baby 2 was finally just published this past June (the Adventures of Super Diaper Baby came out way back in 2002)! Billy and Diaper Dog have all new enemies too: Dr. Dinkle (A.K.A. Rip Van Tinkle) and his cat, Petey. Dr. Dinkle and Petey are out to destroy every toilet in town! It seems that Billy and Diaper Dog have met their match! How will they win?!?!?
First I have to tell you that the book’s humor is really inappropriate -there’s a lot of pee, toilet, diaper and potty humor. Plus the intentional misspelling of words in the book drives my Mom crazy. BUT -I am a nine-year old boy and I think the book is hysterical ! Dav Pilkey wrote the book as George and Harold (of Captain Underpants fame), two fourth grade students who came up with the story. So the book is more of a made up story told from the view-point of two ten-year old kids and I like the idea of it! The story is creative and I think it could get kids thinking about stories they can come up with. It’s written in a comic format with a lot of illustrations. It is an easy read but watch out for those misspelled words!
