Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Batman, Superman, and other superheroes zip away from the Hall of Justice to protect the universe. But they do not leave the Hall of Justice unprotected. Instead, the great Legion of Super-Pets stands guard at the Hall. Krypto the dog, Streaky the cat, Jumpa the kangaroo, and Comet the horse showcase their super skills in efforts to impress each other. The last pet, Proty the protoplasmic shape-shifter, feels left out because his skills are not so super. Mostly he feels like a glob of goo. Soon, the other pets get calls to fight their own missions and Proty is left alone. On his watch, the Legion of Villian Pets arrives and attempts to take over the hall. However, Proty's shape-shifting ability proves worthwhile as he single-handedly thwarts the takeover. This book is one from the "DC Super Pets" series. Its flashy illustrations enhance an already action-packed tale. The book has a 56-page format consisting of three chapters with grabbing titles, a double spread of all the super pets, a two-page listing of all super pets, a glossary, and the URL of a website where more adventure can be found. The third-grade reading level is easy and illustrations closely match the text, aiding comprehension. Readers will enjoy this wild story filled with ideas to increase the imaginations of young minds.
