With its hugely popular and often-challenged-in-schools combination of comics and prose, Captain Underpants is the sort of tale that kids love and parents at best tolerate because their kids are actually reading something. The anti-authoritarian tale of a couple of mischievous schoolchildren who accidentally hypnotize their principal into becoming a briefs-clad hero, this long-awaited new volume, Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers, promises to resolve the six-year-old cliffhanger from the previous book, Captain Underpants and the Preposterous Plight of the Purple Potty People. If you have no idea what any of this means, this event probably isn't for you. Author Dav Pilkey is doing a signing-only event at Quail Ridge Books starting at 4:30 p.m.; this is a signing-line-ticket event only, with tickets available with a purchase of (sigh) Tippy Tinkletrousers. —Zack Smith
