The Adventures of Captain Underpants by: Dav Pilkey - Modern Fantasy Primary
This story is about two kids, George and Arnold, who are in the fourth grade and have created and illustrated their own comic book hero, Captain Underpants. Notorious for playing pranks and being mischievous, the boys hypnotize their principal, Mr. Krupp. He becomes Captain Underpants and soon escapes out of the school and roams the streets in his underwear! I think this book is hilarious. This piece of modern fantasy would be great for a 3rd to 6th grader; I am sure that some of them would love to hypnotize their principals and have the Principal do other things than become a comic book hero.
