In the fifth "epic novel" about the extraordinary Captain Underpants--"faster than a speeding waistband... more powerful than boxer shorts"--the formidable superhero is under siege by a terrifying new enemy, the merciless bionic-powered Wedgie Woman. Will Captain Underpants overcome his fear of spray starch in time to save the world from the evil schemes of Wedgie Woman? No one knows... except maybe George and Harold, the imaginative fourth-grade troublemakers (imagination is not allowed at Jerome Horwitz Elementary School), who are also the creative minds behind Captain Underpants and Wedgie Woman. You see, it all started (as it usually does) with a comic strip drawn and illustrated by the boys. When their mean teacher Miss Ribble gets her hands on the comic book, their troubles really begin.
Fans who have been eagerly awaiting Book 5 in the series, preceded by such gems as Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space and Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants, will heave a sigh of relief at the appearance of Pilkey's latest tongue-in-cheek superhero adventure novel. Goofier than ever, with plenty of boyish drawings and juvenile humor, this lightweight chapter book is the answer to reluctant (and avid) readers' dreams. If descriptions of Wedgie Woman's bionic hair and the "ubrupt" ending of the "happyness" on the planet of Underpantyworld don't turn grade-schoolers into bookworms, what will? By the way, don't let the quotation from Einstein at the front of the book mislead you; this is lowbrow humor at its very finest. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

In the comic strip, Ms. Ribble becomes the Wedgie Woman. She wreaks havoc by bestowing extremely painful wedgies on her enemies until she is undone by the valiant but tubby Captain Underpants. Needless to say, Ms. Ribble does not appreciate the boys' creative efforts and they're sent off to the principal's office once more.
But the adventure certainly doesn't end there. It just so happens that in the office, the school secretary has left an unfinished draft the school's schedule on her computer. The opportunity to liven things up by rearranging the schedule proves irresistible and the boys make a few minor changes while they wait to be reprimanded. They also talk Mr. Krupp, the principal, into signing a blank card. The schedule changes and the card come together (as do Mr. Krupp and Ms. Ribble). Before they know what's happened, Mr. Krupp and Ms. Ribble are engaged, despite their objections. The wedding is a disaster and suddenly The Wedgie Woman, who started out as a figment of George and Harold's collective imagination, becomes real. Will Captain Underpants be able to vanquish his foe once again? You'll just have to read the book to find out!

The plot of the book is really good. Harold and George get a hypono ring out of a cereal box. They use the ring on their teacher Ms. Ribble. They want her to be nicer and not a wedgie women. But they didn't know that women did the oppisite of what they say.
There are three parts of the book that I like.
1. When Ms. Ribble was giving everybody wedgies.
2. When Captin Underpantspunched the robot George and Harold
3. When George and Harold were tied up and the ax fell and cut the ropes instead of them.
