Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
Capstone Publishers and DC Comics have joined together to produce a series of new children's books featuring the pets of the world's great superheroes as they do battle with the pets of famous villains. Meet Supergirl's cat, Aquaman's seahorse, Superman's monkey, Green Lantern's chipmunk, Wonder Woman's kangaroo, and Batman's dog as they work night and day to fight evil and crime in the DC Universe. Some superheroes have more than one super pet and while they can talk to each other, except for a few cases, they cannot talk to humans. Supergirl's cat, Streaky, uses his super powers of hearing, smell, vision, flight, and speed in this adventure to rescue a royal rodent from Kardamyla. Those powers sound familiar? Supergirl aka Girl of Steel turned her pet cat into a Super Cat with powers identical to hers. The Cat of Steel comes through with flying colors but not before a dangerous brush with a glowing piece of green rock. YIPES! Kryptonite! Designed for children just learning to read independently, the twelve chapter books in the "DC Super-Pets" series are both appealing and helpful to young readers. Colorful illustrations by Eisner Award-winning comic illustrator Baltazar are found on the inside front and back book covers as well as on a two-page spread of both hero and villain pets. Different colors of text used for spoken words of each character and colorful word art used for sound effect words are helpful to younger readers. Lines of text are double-spaced with illustrations throughout the fifty-page book. A table of contents and a preview of the main characters preface the story. A "Word Power Guide" (aka glossary), author and illustrator biographies, cool websites, and jokes are included. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid
