September is an exciting time, not only is it back-to-school for teachers, parents, and students but it is also when we here at Scholastic Book Clubs get to introduce new and exciting characters and books for the new school year! This September is definitely not lacking in new characters and exciting books. One such book is the new hilarious romp from Captain Underpants author Dav Pilkey, The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future. Our Lucky editors, Shelly and Caitlin, are so excited about this new title in September’s Lucky that they had to tell you about it. Click here for Shelly’s review. Click here for Caitlin’s top 5 reasons she loves Ook and Gluk!
Shelly: Sure! Travel back in time to 500,001 BC and meet Ook and Gluk, wild and adventurous kung-fu cavemen from Caveland, Ohio! Life is great for these two best friends: Swinging on vines; hanging with their dinosaur pal, Lily; and outsmarting their nasty leader, Big Chief Goppernopper. Everything seems fine until an evil corporation from the future invades their town and pulls Ook and Gluk through a time portal to the year 2222 AD. Will their brains and talents in Kung Fu be enough to save Ook and Gluk and bring them home safely? With help from Dav Pilkey, George Beard and Harold Hutchins (the creators of Captain Underpants) bring you The Adventures of Ook and Gluk Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future, packed with more of the laffs, fun, and flip-o-rama action that you’ve come to enjoy from the Captain Underpants series.
