Captain Underpants

Captain Underpants is a 12-book graphic novel series that Amelie was introduced to by a friend at school. She brought it home (like lice) and now James is also obsessed. Nana Jana has been roped into the phenomenon as well. She's the only one who can be sweet talked into reading the whole thing in one go (they're LONG).

Anyway, we found out that they were making A MOVIE of Captain Underpants and ever since then, James has been PREPARED. Here's the preview:

Here is his reaction to seeing the preview on TV:

And here he is after learning that we would be GOING TO SEE the movie the next day:

We went to the library today to check out some more of the books (did I mention there are *twelve* books in the series, help me). There's been a run on them since the movie, and none were on the shelves - we asked the librarian who pointed us to the "to be shelved" section and we were able to snag one (#11 Captain Underpants and the Tyrannical Retaliation of the Turbo Toilet 2000).

I also go the kids signed up for the summer reading challenge. We got home 1/2 an hour before bedtime, but James already has a sticker. Amelie's challenge is a little harder (1 sticker per hour of reading). They get to pick out a book to keep at the end if they complete the project.

Excuse the mess and the blurry pictures - but hey, they're representative.
