Booklist - 09/15/2011 After their principal, Mr. Krupp, offers strong criticisms of their earlier comic book, George and Harold create a new villain, Dr. Dilbert Dinkle. Through transformations too complicated to explain in detail, Dr. Dinkle ends up as a big blob of urine and sets about spreading mayhem with his cat sidekick. Also featured is an extended parody of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, along with multiple exuberant, humorous illustrations and a fair share of phonetic spellings. It all adds up to a fine example of postmodern, story-within-a-story narrative structure that will please kids, who won’t care as much about postmodernism as they do about funny pee monsters. - Copyright 2011 Booklist.
School Library Journal - 01/01/2012 Gr 2–4—For fans of the first installment in this gross-out graphic novel series, the long wait is over. And it was long—an ad for this book appeared in the back of the first "Super Diaper Baby," published in 2002. The evil Dr. Dilbert Dinkle has created the Liquidator 2000 to turn bank vaults into water but accidentally steps in the ray himself. Rendered a puddle of H2O, he vows revenge on the town by taking all of their toilets, and Super Diaper Baby and his canine sidekick must save the day. The book is presented as a comic made by kids, with spelling and grammatical errors and willfully simplistic black-and-white artwork—a perfect match for the tone of the book. Crude humor is easy. Funny crude humor is not. And the laughs here (and there are many) are definitely spot-on for the intended audience. There are moments in this book that might leave adults in utter shock, but that is precisely the appeal of this inspired bit of potty humor. There's no question that kids will love it.—Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, MI - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
