Captain Underpants fans will be gleefully disgusted with this new laugh-out-loud series, starring a boy so gross they named him Yuck.
In “Yuck’s Slime Monster,” the Prince of Pungency hatches a disgusting plan—if he can’t bring his pet slug to school, he’ll bring a Slime Monster instead! Soon enough, there’s goo and slop everywhere! Can Yuck control the Slime Monster before it takes over his school? And in “Yuck’s Gross Party,” Yuck’s sister Polly—prim as a Princess—throws a birthday bash that doesn’t include him. So to get even, he assembles his revolting gang for a gruesome party with gross games galore! And he and his pals are going to make Polly the most disgusting birthday cake ever!
Yuck’s Slime Monster
“Yuck, look what you’ve done!”
Polly Princess stood in Yuck’s bedroom doorway clutching her Glitter Girl magazine. The pages were sticky and sloppy and covered in slime.
“It wasn’t me,” Yuck said. “I didn’t touch your silly magazine.” He was lying on his bed reading Oink. He turned the page. . . .
Matthew Morgan and David Sinden codeveloped and wrote the Yuck stories. They’re lifelong friends who met at school sports day in elementary school and grew up in Kent, England. Matt and Dave both worked in children’s publishing before turning to fulltime writing.
