Tra-La-Laaaaa! Super news for Captain Underpants fans
By Guest Blogger on August 10th, 2012
Tra-La-Laaaaa! Tracy van Straaten, our VP of Trade Publicity, is here with some big news for Captain Underpants fans of all ages! The ninth epic Captain Underpants novel, Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers, will be published on August 28th (the first new Captain Underpants book in six years!). In a starred review Publishers Weekly says, “a toast of ‘non-alckaholick wine’ to the ninth Captain Underpants novel…supa!”
