Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Barry Allen is an ordinary person who was struck by lightning and then accidently covered with chemicals. As a result, he can turn into the Flash, the fastest person on the planet. He uses his superhuman speed to help solve crimes and capture criminals. In this book Barry and his wife are at a Kaleidoscope demonstration at S.T.A.R. Labs when something appears to go wrong. The evil Rainbow Raider appears in the middle of the demonstration and he wickedly announces his plans to take over the world. His plan involves hypnotizing the entire world using beams of colorful light. Barry quickly turns into the Flash but despite all of his efforts; he also becomes hypnotized by the Rainbow Raider's powerful lights. The final chapters detail Flash's battle with the Rainbow Raider. Although exciting, the plot is thin. This is a chapter book, not a graphic novel. Still, the super hero characters and the large lettered text will appeal to younger readers. The difficult vocabulary may pose a challenge even though there is a short glossary at the end of the book. This book is part of the "Super DC Heroes" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
