Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—In the first book, a fighter jet crashes on Paradise Island, requiring one of the best Amazons to battle Ares. Princess Diana asks her mother for permission to be the chosen one to enter the world of mortals. Queen Hippolyta refuses and decides to hold a special competition to decide who will go. Diana puts on a disguise and sets out to prove that she is Wonder Woman. In Robin's First Flight, junior-high student Tim Drake has spent the last six months training his mind and body to become Batman's sidekick. In order to move into this coveted role, he must pass one final test set by the Dark Knight. With help from Nightwing, Batman's former partner, Tim attempts to complete the task and the other obstacles that come his way to become the next Robin. In Deep Space Hijack, astronauts have crashed on Pluto and Superman is the only one who can save them. Faster than a speeding bullet, he soars off to rescue them. He discovers that Jimmy Olsen, the Daily Planet's young photographer, has hitched a ride aboard the spacecraft. That's not Superman's biggest problem, though. Evil Kanjar Ro attacks and the Man of Steel needs to summon the strength to defeat the space pirate while dealing with other challenges. Written in an easy-to-read chapter-book format with full-page, full-color cartoon illustrations interspersed, these books are sure to be a hit among budding superhero fans.—Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH

In the newest DC Comics Super Heroes installment, Superman is once again called upon to save the day. When the Long Range Space Explorer is stranded on its way to Pluto, three trillion miles from Earth, there is only one man up for the challenge! He volunteers to carry that indestructible ship to its destination. Unfortunately, it does not prove to be as easy as a task as the Man of Steel anticipates. Deep in space, far away from the Sun's strength-rays, Superman encounters the evil Kanjar Ro. Kanjar wants to get his hands on the ship. Will Superman be able to fend off the evil alien without his super strength? Complete with a glossary and guided reading questions in the back, Deep Space Hijack is sure to spark the interest of even the most reluctant grade-school readers. The comic book illustrations, short chapters, and ingenious use of attention-grabbing word art, will get the story across to struggling readers as well as simple comic book lovers.
