Captain Underpants library
Sarah Sloat’s blog post about the Dummhausen library (which had to close because someone stole the book) reminds me to document the library in Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpants series. The school library contains only one book, and the librarian is Ms. Singerbrains (say it out loud).
In Captain Underpants and the Preposterous Plight of the Purple Potty People (number eight in the series), our heroes George and Harold visit an alternate reality where their school’s library is full of books, and the librarian even celebrates Banned Books Week (she’s shown holding a copy of Mommy Has Two Heathers, a play on this frequently-banned book). And that reminds me! Pilkey has other library shenanigans in his book The Dumb Bunnies, too. In that book, the dumb bunnies “bowl a home run at the public library,” where books on the shelves include The Condo that Jack Subleased, The Second to Last of the Mohicans, and Green Eggs and Tofu.
