Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sue Poduska
In the tradition of the "Batman" DC Comics series, this book provides an explanation for the beginning of a new Robin's career. Dick Grayson, the original Robin, has grown up and become a new crimefighter named Nightwing. Tim Drake wants to take his place as Batman's sidekick, so he undergoes the necessary training. Now, Batman wants to put him through a final test. He arranges for Nightwing to follow Tim as he searches for Batman. During the search, they encounter crimes that must be dealt with immediately. Tim helps the victims in spite of his time limit. He comes through with flying colors, partly because he has learned to put the needs of others before his own needs. A very quick read, this book seems more appropriate for a nine-year-old reader than for a twelve year old. The author downplays the violence of the original Batman series and makes it more timely. The illustrators do an excellent job of recreating the vibrant and colorful illustrations of comic books. Includes a table of contents, character summaries, author biographies, a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts. Reviewer: Sue Poduska
