In this book all three team up running from the creation Harold and George made which was the big....bad....wedgie woman, This book is absolutely funny its a must read if you like the series. Many kids enjoy this book so it could be spotted in a classroom as everyone races to read this series before. Must Read! ( )

This book is about how Harold and George, the two creators of captain underpants, accidentally turn their mean teacher Ms. Ribble into the Wicked Wedgie Woman. In the end Captian Underpants saves the day and the boys are able to turn Ms.Ribble back into a teacher with a postie adjustment to her attitude. This is a good boy for elementary aged boys because it is full of humor, super hero powers, and other things boys like to read and joke about.
I would use this book during a lesson over creative writing and fiction. ( )

I liked this book because it's super funny and there is a man flying in his underwear! Who wouldn't laugh at that! ( )

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. ( )

Book description
Georges et Harold se sont vraiment surpassés : ils ont créés un monstre ! Cette creature est la plus rapide , la plus futée et la plus méchante que le monde ait jamais connue. Je te présente Mme Culotte ! La cruelle Madame Culotte aura t elle raison de nos héros?
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439050006, Paperback)

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
