Editorial Reviews

Ken Tucker
Drawn and written with a restraint that never closes off heartfelt emotion. . .
Entertainment Weekly
School Library Journal
YA-Using rich full-color illustrations in folio format and a brief text, the authors take the character created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster from his entry into human society as a baby through his political education as an adult. Upon discovering our planet's unfed multitudes, Superman plans to provide rations from America's overproduction of grain, but learns of the difficulties presented by regimes that come between the offer of food and their starving underclasses. He comes to the ultimate understanding that the best he can do is to teach those in need how to farm for themselves. In short, this slender story is a kind of expansive holiday card. The artwork and the pace of the narrative, however, are compelling, drawing readers through Superman's continuing realizations as he encounters new-and human-made-obstacles to his plan to feed the hungry. This volume will appeal to middle-grade readers for whom the ideas may be fresh and challenging. The size makes it a good candidate for booktalking.-Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley Public Library, CA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    GREGG AVEDON for Superman

    First of all, this book is a nice simple book on Superman by the original creators. I certainly would reccomend it to anyone dedicated in their pursuit of Superman material. Now, I've got to mention here that I'm on the bandwagon for the upcoming Superman Movie and it's casting of the new Man of Steel. I've been reading several sources about Gregg Avedon's interest and outside interest in casting him as the new Superman. After seeing the huge story on the Superman Homepage site, I am also a believer! Gregg Avedon is so much the character through and through, there's no doubt he should be given the opportunity to read for the role. The people over at Warner Bros would be crazy not to at least give him the chance. You can see what I'm talking about if you do a Google search for 'gregg avedon, superman' and see for yourself.

    Fantastic Illustration!

    At first, I was surprised by the format of the text, graphic art, and size of the book. However, I was extremely pleased with the portrait-esqe artwork of the book, it adds a realistic touch to Superman. The story is not deep though. It superficially touches upon a few topics that are quite interesting, which have the potetential for a great plot. Overall a good read, but do not look for a multi-hour intensive read.
