Captain Underpants – Number 1 in Most Challenged Book Category for 2 Years Running

Captain Underpants

This week is Banned Books Week.  For the past two years, the Captain Underpants books by Dav Pilkey have received the most challenges.  This series has been around for over fifteen years.  I’m curious why there’s a new found interest in keeping them off library shelves.

Admittedly, I’ve never read one.  It’s hard to find one on the library shelf.  Kids love them.  Recently, I noticed our copies were almost in shreds.  I requested new copies be ordered.  They went out like hotcakes as soon as they arrived.

Guess I need to get on the list for a Captain Underpant’s book…  see what all the fuss is about.
