Captain Underpants–A Banned Book You Should Know

200px-CaptainunderpantscoverCaptain Underpants was written and illustrated by Day Pilkey as a children’s novel, which in turn became a book series consisting of ten different novels. This novel series follows two fourth graders, whom happen to be neighbors and best friends, George Beard, Harold Hutchins as well as their comic book superhero Captain Underpants, who inadvertently becomes real through their hypnotized “megalomaniacal principle” Mr. Krupp. This series rangers anywhere from Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie in 2001, Captain Underpants and the Preposterous Plight of the Purple Potty People in 2006 and in 2014 Captain Underpants and the Tyrannical Retaliation of the Turbo Toilet 2000. However, this novel has been one of the top challenged books due to its “offensive language” and its unsuitability for the age group in which it is intended for (children).
