He looks more like Lieutenant Underpants to me...

Two fourth graders accidentally hypnotize their principal and turn him into Captain Underpants, a somewhat superhero. This is the fourth book in the series and follow events after a new science teacher is hired at their school and does not like when people make fun of his name. The two boys also write some of what happens in comic form.

I would recommend this book for boys. Some girls might like it too. It’s on the easier side but the drawings and comics make it interesting and if the reader has trouble with harder texts, this might be the way to go. This is pretty popular with ELs.
