WOO! I’m giving away a #CaptainUnderpants prize pack thanks to @Scholastic!

30 May

Captain Underpants – (the name elicits giggles – doesn’t it?) is the very first series I read when I was a kid. I begged my mom to pick them up for me when I saw the first three books in the series at a yard sale – The Adventures of Captain Underpants – Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets – 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 and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants. Although Mom kind of looked at me a little funny with the Professor Poopypants one, she knows fine literature and got it for me anyway.  I read and re-read these books until they literally fell apart.  I then sought out new additions to the series and loved every one of them. I still am a strong advocate for Captain Underpants. It is a great series to get kids to start reading independently. It is a fun series that will engage all kinds of readers.

I was THRILLED to see that DreamWorks is making a Captain Underpants movie!!! The movie hits theaters on June 2nd. It is my hope that kids will see the movie and want to start reading about Captain Underpants other adventures! To celebrate this Earth shattering event, Scholastic sent me new Captain Underpants books, AND is offering a prize pack for one of you!

One randomly picked commenter from this post will receive:

The Adventures of Captain Underpants (Book 1, now in full color!)

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Official Handbook

Captain Underpants: Wacky Word Wedgies and Flushable Fill-Ins

That’s right – just comment below to be entered to win! Winner will be selected randomly and announced one week from today.

One of the giveaways is the original Captain Underpants book (with some additional content) but in full color!

The illustrations are the same but the color really makes them come alive!

The other two books are complimentary to the movie. These books feature the CGI images of Captain Underpants, Harold and George.


I know you all are saying”ERIK, WE NEED TO KNOW MORE!”

Check out the movie’s trailer!

    Very cool giveaway, Erik! I’m looking forward to seeing the movie.

    Erik! My older son loved Captain Underpants too! My little guy cannot wait to start reading them and both are psyched about the movie! I would love to win the prize pack for my first grader! (He is a huge reader too – just turned in his 1,000 book log entry of the school year!!)

    Hi Erik, my boys would love this Captain Underpants pack. They are huge fans. I’ve been talking to them about your blog and trying to inspire them to start one of their own over the summer just for fun. We’ll see what happens.

      Your saying that really made my day! Let me know if they do decide to start a blog! 🙂 You guys are entered!

    Wow! My oldest is always looking for new books to read and loved the first Captain Underpants book. I would love to win this for him. I’m sure he will be wanting to see the movie as well!!

    Oh my goodness… my friend’s grandson would LOVE these books. I am grinning at thought of these stories.

    He is no match for the twins Dirty Socks.

    These books certainly do engage all kinds of readers – including me, even though I’m no longer a kid. I love this kind of humour! 😀

      They are prime specimens of perfect potty humour – gross enough to be potty humour, but clean enough to still be great for little kids (whether at heart-like me!-or age)! 🙂

    I’m so excited to see this in color! I’m a huge Pilkey fan…thanks for highlighting this series.

    I have a new grandson and it would be great to have Captain Underpants to be his first book to read on his own. I had never heard of the books, but I will be looking for them as a gift to my grandson. THANKS

    My boys, ages 8 & 12 would love this prize package! They were lucky enough to meet Dav Pilkey last year when he was launching the Dog Man series. Great guy!

    Thanks to you and Scholastic for this chance to win!

    Ah, the good Captain! Please don’t add my name to the drawing, for I already have the first 11 books in the series. I think the prize should really go to a C.U. newbie.

    Good luck everybody! This is a fantastic contest!


  14. Kelly D May 31, 2017 at 4:44 pm #

    My daughter would enjoy these books.

    Thanks for the giveaway, loved these books as a kid.

    I love Captain Underpants, and this prize pack looks great!

    Images are great. Would love to add to my own shelf.
