Product description

Everything goes VERY wrong when George and Harold fall into a parallel universe – and it gets even wronger when they run into their very own evil twins. Now the boys must face their most cunning enemies yet: themselves! And with Captain Underpants facing his own nemesis, the wicked Captain Blunderpants, will good or evil triumph? The fate of the galaxy might all depend on two new superheroes: Great-Granny Girdle and the brave Boxer Boy! Get set for chuckles and adventure in the name of all that is pre-shrunk and cottony – plus even more amazing Flip-o-Rama animation!

    George and Harold manage to go in a time machine ,invented by Melvin Sneedly, but they went in there two days in a row (the one thing Melvin told them not to do)! They then find themselves plunged into another world! I would recommend this book to 6-11 year olds

    I’m Not A Big Fan Of This Book. i had to read it in school, and i didnt like It. I Found It a little bit to Young, With a plot that didnt catch my attention. Other People May Like It, But, In My Opinion, Dont Read It.
