Overview

Tra-la-laaa! The wait is over! Dav Pilkey—ahem—we mean, George and Harold, the authors of SUPER DIAPER BABY, are back with their second epic novel! Now with super-cool foil covers! Shiny! Fun!

Meet Ook and Gluk, the stars of this sensationally silly graphic novel from the creators of Captain Underpants! It's 500,001 BC, and Ook and Gluk's hometown of Caveland, Ohio, is under attack by an evil corporation from the future. When Ook, Gluk, and their little dinosaur pal Lily are pulled through a time portal to 2222, they discover a future world that's even more devastated than their own. Luckily, they find a friend in Master Wong, a martial arts instructor who trains them in the ways of kung fu. Now all they have to do is travel back in time 502,223 years and save the day!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for THE ADVENTURES OF OOK AND GLUK
"Few books can inspire the level of devotion seen by the Captain Underpants series, but Pilkey has likely re-created that feat with the joyous Ook and Gluk, a book destined to fly off the shelves and circulate until the cover falls off." —SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"This wild graphic novel will appeal to those who like silly adventures, . . . humor, and kung-fu fighting." —BOOKLIST

School Library Journal

Gr 3–6—The year is 500,001 BC. The town is Caveland, OH. Ook Schadowski and Gluk Jones have a knack for getting under the skin of no-good Chief Goppernopper, the ruler of Caveland. When one of his distant descendants uses a portal to travel back in time from AD 2222 and steal natural resources, our heroes jump into action, traveling to the future, where they learn kung fu and eventually put a stop to the evildoers. The humor is completely immature, and for the target audience, completely hilarious. Billed as The Second Graphic Novel by George Beard and Harold Hutchins—The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby (Scholastic, 2002) was the first—the book is crafted to look like it was written and illustrated by kids, employing rough black-and-white pencil and watercolor artwork. Also in keeping with the ruse, words are often misspelled—a fact that will drive many teachers and parents bonkers, but will likely have little effect on the spelling skills of youngsters. Few books can inspire the level of devotion seen by the "Captain Underpants" series, but Pilkey has likely re-created that feat with the joyous Ook and Gluk, a book destined to fly off the shelves and circulate until the cover falls off.—Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, MI
