Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers
So what do you get when you mix poo-poo, pee-pee and a huge pile of baby diapers? You get Super Diaper Baby and his diaper dog, of course!
Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers is clever, funny and just what the doctor—-or the diaper-man, in this case—-ordered for ages 7+ readers. It’s the diaper-clad story of a precocious little baby who accidentally falls into some power juice, drinks it, and gets “super powers and stuff,” as he describes it.
Afterward, Super Diaper Baby has all sorts of adventures. He fights a bad guy who is turned into smelly poo-poo (that’s right, poo-poo), an evil doctor who is transformed into a huge blob of pungent pee, and a diabolical cat that steals all the neighborhood toilets and leaves the children doing the pee-pee dance. That you’ve gotta see!
Author Dav Pilkey leaves no stone in his babyish imagination unturned in this adorable book. Penned by fictitious and slightly illiterate characters, George and Harold, the Super Diaper Baby book is full of babyish adventures, hilarious phonetic misspellings (e.g., acksidently, superierer, etc), and warm and fuzzy moments when The Diapered One tries to build up his dad’s confidence even though he’s not as strong as his own little diaper-clad son.
This is a wonderful story-starter for the emerging independent reader. The sketches (done comic book style) and the word spellings will encourage children to try their own hand at writing books without worrying about producing a perfect manuscript. The plot is interesting enough for 7-year olds, the drawings are funny and full of action, and there are even “flip-o-rama” pages where children can interact with the characters by flipping the pages back and forth to make the sketches move.
Yes, despite a few “smelly” words like poo-poo and pee-pee, this book is great for reading silently or aloud in the classroom. It’s also great as a snuggle-under-the-covers-and-read book just before lights out.
Don’t miss this one.
