A mishap involving a new-fangled machine and an ill-timed sneeze turn nerdy Melvin Sneedly into the gunky, slimy "Bionic Booger Boy." In the second volume, Melvin and Mr. Krupp (a.k.a. Captain Underpants) find themselves trapped in each other’s bodies. Those who enjoy gross-out humor (i.e., most boys) will probably be laughing too hard to notice the deficiencies in the rather shapeless plots.

Gr 2-4-Fourth-graders George and Harold are good at pranks involving ketchup on toilet seats; saving the planet from the "nasty forces of unrelenting evil"; and making fun of Melvin Sneedly, the school brainiac and tattletale. When his robot-making hobby backfires during a class demonstration, Melvin tries to transform himself into a bionic superboy to get back at the pair but ends up as Bionic Booger Boy instead. Chaos ensues after he accidentally doubles and triples in size. George and Harold call on Captain Underpants (the school principal), but he loses his powers when he is covered in saliva. When a bionic hamster hears the terrified cries of his two friends, he comes to the rescue. The typical Pilkey ending leaves the door open for a sequel, and the novel is filled with the familiar comic-book inserts, Flip-O-Rama animations, and black-and-white cartoon illustrations. Fans will love this installment, and the book would probably appeal to slow readers. Adults are likely to be turned off by the use of the words "idiot" and "dumb" to refer to children and by the graphic description of snot.
