Captain Underpants to the rescue

Whatever my personal feelings about a potty-mouthed superhero in tighty whities, there’s no doubt that Captain Underpants has brought a generation of reluctant readers (particularly those with Y chromosomes) into reading for fun, and for that, I salute him.

Today only, enjoy special savings at the Scholastic Store on boxed sets; The Captain Underpants Collection: Volume I and The Captain Underpants Collection: Volume II are both normally $20 apiece (each includes four books), but today only you can use coupon code TWTCU to get either or both sets for just $9.98 apiece!

Shipping is automatically free on orders of $25+. Your kid devouring books of his own volition? Priceless.


  1. It tells me not valid code when I cut and paste. But if I enter it in one letter at a time, works perfectly!

  2. My son was seriously having problems reading in 1st grade. They were thinking about keeping him back, until we found these books. It was a life changing moment for all of us. 🙂 And yes, I did read them with him, and found myself laughing outloud. God Bless Dave Pilkey!

  3. I may have to “invest” in these for my son… He’s on the verge of reading, and I think he would adore them!!!
