Comment: Dragon’s Fat Cat by Pilkey is another funny one.
My son is a big fan of the Captain Underpants book series. He received a bunch of them as hand-me-downs from my nephew and he reads and re-reads them all the time. And there is always a lot of snickering and giggling when he does.
From the same authors of Captain Underpants, is a new book series from Scholastic that promises to be just as amusing and appealing for kids 6-12. A book that will make them want to read: The Adventures of Ook and Gluk Kung Fu Cavemen from the Future.
About the Book
In this all-new graphic novel, George Beard and Harold Hutchins present the sensational saga of two silly caveboys named Ook and Gluk. Ook and Gluk have a pretty awesome life growing up together in Caveland, Ohio, in 500,001 BC—even though they’re always getting in trouble with their nasty leader, Big Chief Goppernopper. But Ook and Gluk’s idyllic life takes a turn for the terrible when an evil corporation from the future invades their quiet, prehistoric town. When Ook, Gluk, and their little dinosaur pal, Lily, are pulled through a time portal to the year 2222 AD, they discover that the world of the future is even worse than the devastated one they came from. Fortunately, they find a friend in Master Wong, a martial arts instructor who trains them in the ways of kung fu, so that they may one day return home and make things right again. And, like the other Captain Underpants books, The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future features the world’s cheesiest animation technology, “Flip-O-Rama,” in every chapter.

Whether you have a reluctant reader, a kid who reads everything they can get their hands on, or a child somewhere in between, Ook and Gluck looks like it is sure to entertain. It has signature Dav Pilkey graphics, an engaging story (with a moral) and is full of laughs. I even enjoyed browsing through it.
