Inspiring story for artistic kids!
'Boys of Steel' is filled with delightful, colorful illustrations, and an easy-to-read text, making it perfect for kids age 4 and up. It tells the little known story of the two 'geeky' teenaged boys from Cleveland--Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster--who were ignored and picked on by their peers at school,and who channeled their frustrations into creating 'scienti-fiction' stories. Looking to popular films and magazines of the time (Depression Era, 1930's), they drew inspiration from Tarzan, Flash Gordon and Doc Savage--and created the world's first comic book super-hero: SUPERMAN.
