    One thought on “Prince of Underwhere”

    1. Okay so the writing isn't great but the idea of the book will appeal to a lot of boys and I'll be booktalking this come SRC time. Zeke has a lot of crazy stuff going on in his life. His parents are on a dig and his cousin is baby-sitting him and his sister. His friend's cat is acting weird, he's discovered a new world called Underwhere (that's underground), and there are spies, zombies, and a very weird rapper following him. Zeke has adventures above ground and in Underwhere which is under there [...]

    2. I am not a fan of potty humor in general, and this book was no exception. I enjoyed how the book goes between normal chapter book and graphic novel, depending on where the story is taking place. (When the children are in Underwhere, it is a graphic novel.) I would have enjoyed it more if I actually liked the illustrations in the graphic novel, but I found them hard to read and overall just plain strange. I also didn't really like the dialogue in the graphic novel sections. The "normal" chapters [...]

    3. I was disappointed in the first in this new series by Bruce Hale, who also writes the Chet Ghecko series. I thought this book was trying to be too many things by appealing to every boy interest imaginable (spies, zombies, potty humor, comics, etc.) and the story just wasn’t particularly captivating.

    4. Wha, wha, wha This story was a pretty big let down. I knew going in that this was going to be full of bathroom humor, and it was. However, it didn't make me work for any of it. The whole story line is convoluted and confusing. Why are there secret agents after these kids, and why are they blackmailing the kids? What do the zombies and t-rexs have to do with the story? How did Beefy-D track them down?I read it with my Action Book Club kids at my library. These kids are always very enthusiastic ab [...]

    5. (I now maintain a blog just for my kid-lit reviews. Find it at kidlit4adults .)A friend has convinced me to try my hand this year at writing children's literature; but I don't actually know anything about children's literature, so am starting the process simply by reading a large selection of titles that have been recommended to me. I was told that Bruce Hale's "Underwhere" series is a good example of literature perfect for third-graders; and indeed, as I read this first volume myself, I saw tha [...]

    6. Filled with potty humor and adventure, this is for Captain Underpants and The Day My But Went Psycho lovers. When young Zeke, his twin sister, and his best friend are in the real world, the story is told in words. When they fall into Underwhere (a world beneath the Earth's surface with talking cats, revolutionary midgets, and an evil UnderLord) the story is told in comics. The black and white art reminded me a little of the Powder Puff Girls. This book is just the beginning of the Underwhere chr [...]

    7. A normal boy, his twin sister, best friend, and best friend's cat enter a mysterious underground world where people wear their underwear on the outside. There are spies, zombies, dinosaurs, magical items, and a creepy rapper who is secretly the evil UnderLord.As you can tell from that plot description, this is a silly book. There are some laughs, much of them from potty humor, "bad" rapper talk, and nonsensical insults.I fairly enjoyed the book, but it ended strangely with no closure. The events [...]

    8. A funny book for elementary kids. Lots of potty humor and butt jokes, but what did you expect form a book where in the land under ours, they wear their underwear on the outside of their clothes. A good series for kids and a good introduction to graphic stories for younger kids who might be new to them. The book is part graphic and part chapter.

    9. Cute, potty humor isn't over the top like many others said. I gave it a three instead of a four because I think the writing was pretty simplistic. I would have liked the characters to be more complex.

    10. Kids love this series, but I found it too weird and at times hard to follow. It is a good sell for reluctant readers however b/c it is part chapter book and part graphic novel; in addition, there are references to underwear/underwhere and mooning throughout.

    11. Well, if you like toilet humor then this might be a good choice. Good enough for what it is. What I really liked was how all of the scenes in Underwhere were illustrated comic-style to kind of help with the other-worldliness.

    12. This book is about a kid who loves to save the world more than doing homework. this book is also about if you dont wear clean undrwears you get attacked by a monster.I connect this book to the world because people like to save there own country.I gave this book 5 stars because its funny.

    13. This has some interesting ideas in it and I love the structure of novel vs graphic novel. But it's dumb. Even for a book directed to prepubescent boys, there's no end of stupid fart jokes and butt jokes and dick jokes and stink jokes.Also, don't use the word "midget." It's offensive.

    14. This is for fans of the Captain Underpants series. Alternates between comic book/graphic novel panels and regular prose.

    15. Part chapter-book, part graphic novel a good story to give a 4th or 5th grade reluctant boy reader. Lots of potty humor!

    16. This is one of the books to hand to a child that loves potty humor. Interest mix of chapter book and graphic novel. Definitely surprising that it ended with a cliffhanger.

    17. A very interesting mix of prose and comic form, which I'm seeing more and more of. It's weird, but I'm all for experimentation of the form!

    18. This is only getting two stars because I am NOT the target audience for it. I'm pretty sure the target audience--readers who love bathroom humor--will enjoy this one.

    19. Half book half graphic novel with lots of puns and underwear humor. Great for Captain Underpants fans, boys, young graphic novel lovers (Babymouse fans).
