Product Description

From Amazon

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman serves up waistband-expanding comedy in this fifth story in the series. George and Harold struggle to pass fourth grade after their comic book imaginings rub their teacher, Ms. Ribble, the wrong way.

By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 21 2013
Format: Paperback
Another fun story of adventure for Harold, George and Captain Underpants. This time things stay closer to home and the kids accidentally turn Ms. Ribble into the Wicked Wedgie Woman. Great story with lots of laughs, references to past books reminding us of Captain Underpants past exploits. Underpants also learns of his background story and a hidden talent he didn't know he had. What was surprising about this book is that Pilkey manages to bring character development to the table and these unassuming books hold a lot more than we think they do. Ms. Ribble is about to retire, her nastiness is examined, she and Mr. Krupp almost get married. But as Wedgie Woman, Ribble is even worse than she was as her own self. When George and Harold finally get Ms. Ribble back to herself again, they make a minor personality change and the book ends with an entirely new character for Ms. Ribble. Will she stay this way? Will the boys finally have a friend inside the school? I'm actually quite interested to see what happens in the next book.

Format: Paperback
George and Harold haven't changed much since the last Captain Underpants adventure: they still wish school could be just a little more lively. When their truly evil teacher Ms. Ribble announces she will be retiring and forces the class to write identical sappy cards to mark the occasion, the boys have a better idea: they'll write one of their comic books featuring the heroic Captain Underpants instead, and demonstrate their amazing creativity.
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!

Captain uderpants is a school pricipal that was transformed into a superhero and when ever someone snaps thier fingers he will turn into captain underpants he has the power of an elastic wasteband and has the the speed of a speedind wasteband. He is always being troubled by these two boys named Goerge and Harold. When he is turned into captain under pants from a hypnoring they are always there to help him though or watch him through any problem he has.In this book Captain underpants confronted by yet another evil villan that Goerge and Harold corrupted there teacher! Oh by the way Goerge and Harold are the ones that made there pricipal captain underpants but back to the rest when the two boys got there hypno ring back from the box they put it in they decided to turn there teacher into a cool person because she always was mean to the boys but when they did she turned into a strange wedgie giving teacher and she always would do something that had to do with wedgies she would hang them off light post hang them anywhere she could by there underwear and it would be days before they got down.I think you should read this book because it is really funny and if you want to know how to get away with things you should definitly read this book. the genre is comedy and fiction. I like Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wegie Woman because it's funny and Captain Underpants always saves the day. My favorite part is when the Wegie Woman makes a Harold and George robot to destroy Captain Underpants. It could be better if there were more chapter and characters. I read it because it had a good book cover.

Format: Paperback
The book I'm reviewing is Captin Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgiewomen. The Auther is Dav Pickley and it has 174 pages in it.It is a fistion book , and it in daytime. The book is really cool and alot of laughs. The Captin Underpants series is really cool but I think this one is the best.
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.
Captin Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgiewomen. It is filled with alot of funny things. I would recomened this book to 3-6 graders, because it is real easy and really funny. Thats the book I wanted to review. Peaceout.
