Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space

Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space

Series: Captain Underpants (Book #3)
by Dav Pilkey Illustrated by Dav Pilkey

An alien spaceship has conveniently landed on the roof of Jerome Horwitz Elementary School. At the same time, George and Harold pulled off the prank of their careers by tricking the cafeteria ladies into flooding the school with slimy lime-green foam.

Fed up, the cafeteria ladies quit, leaving room for three massive, tentacled space aliens in disguise to assume their positions and slowly change all the children into evil lunchroom zombie nerds. Only the amazing Captain Underpants can save the day now. But even he may have met his match when he encounters a giant man-eating dandelion of doom!

Raising the rooftops across the school district, Captain Underpants is at it again!
