Children's Literature - Alicia Jensen
Look up in the Sky! It's a bird...it's a plane...No, it's Super Monkey!! Beppo is Superman's pet monkey who teams up with pets of other superheroes to fight crime. This time Beppo is at the carnival stopping the evil ape, Gorilla Grodd, from freeing all of the circus animals from their cage. Will Beppo be able to stop Grodd before the wild animals hurt themselves or the humans? This early reader book will be sure to captivate all children with its explosive and colorful pictures. This comic book style story is divided into short easy to read chapters. This story is for children of all ages, great for early readers who are starting to read on their own with many simple words, or a fascinating "read to me book." With engaging super hero elements, and comic book style feel with action-animated texts throughout the story it makes reading exciting! Some neat features of this book are the stats page, where information is given on the main super pet's powers and where they got them, as well as an index of all the super pets and villain pets, a joke page, and a glossary in the back to help kids with those big words. This book is an action packed delightful read, which will leave children wanting to get more books in the "Super Pets" series. Reviewer: Alicia Jensen

Gr 1–4—It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a super-pet? Yes, the pets of the DC superhero universe have their own new series. Featuring Baltazar's bright, graphic cartoons, these books are great additions for the early-chapter-book set. In the first book, Streaky the Super-Cat saves Queen Markela of Kardamyla's pet hamster, Prince Zouli, from the clutches of the evil cat, Rozz. In the second, Beppo the Super-Monkey battles Gorilla Grodd when Bazooka's Carnival comes to Metropolis. A day of fun turns into a nightmare when the evil ape starts opening cages, freeing wild beasts and terrorizing humans. Beppo saves the day, aided by the Wonder Twins, Jayna and Zan, and Gleek, their space chimp. Both books are full of action, including colorful graphics within the text, reminiscent of the old live-action Batman TV show. Each title has a colorful spread in the heat of the action. Solid introductions to comic-book-style writing.—Amy Commers, South St. Paul Public Library, MN
