Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
The first page of the story delivers a mini biography of the main character which is very helpful when reading the story. Joker has been trying to get Batman for as long as I can remember, but has always failed. This time, Joker hijacks a ship in Gotham Harbor and his evil plan is to attack Gotham City at night. He is sure his plan will work! The Joker has been patient for years and now..."Batman and Robin were right where the Joker wanted them. Trembling with excitement, he flicked a lighter, and ignited a long fuse by his feet." Will the Joker succeed this time? The word choice the author uses adds much color to the story. For example, "the fountains spewed out rainbow-colored sparks" and "some emitted showers of multicolored sparks." This book has humor, suspense, and is easy to read. Both boys and girls will enjoy it. At the end of the book the author includes a mini biography on the author and illustrator, a glossary, discussion questions and writing prompts. This book is perfect for both school and home libraries. I will look forward to more books on the Joker as I love to be able to laugh and at the same time dislike the Villain. This book would make a wonderful gift!
