School Library Journal - 01/01/2018 POPGr 4–6—In the fictional metropolis of Nitro City, it's all about plumbing. And toilets. And bodily functions. There are mutant creatures living in the pipes and sewers, one of many challenges facing the city's citizens. Sully Sullivan is a 13-year-old with a deep passion for plumbing who worships the craft's heroes of years past—legendary folks who were taken down by a nefarious corporation called Ironwater. Sully is so into plumbing that he becomes the go-to for his school's principal when plumbing problems arise, and collects plumber trading cards. Sully becomes embroiled in a plot to save the city from Ironwater and much adventure ensues. This story is not just full of toilet and bathroom humor and puns—they are the entire story and plotline. VERDICT Hand this to avid fans of Captain Underpants who are looking for something longer but with ample potty humor and slapstick comedy.—Kate Olson, Bangor School District, WI - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
