Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Text and illustrations go hand-in-hand in this book, sure to be an exciting read for middle school students. Girls will be especially intrigued. There are three new books in the Wonder Woman Adventures series that students can look forward to reading. If the stories seem familiar, it is because they can be found in some comic books. The rules of Themyscira Island were set by ancients, and they are carried out by the Amazon Queen, Hippolyta. Only immortal Amazon women live on the island. Then, a plane crashes on the island. No mortal man has ever set foot on the island before. It has been foretold that such an event could result in death and destruction. At the same time, the Queen learns that wars are going on in other parts of the world and that she must send her best warrior to stop the battles. She decides a series of battles will decide who is best, but tells Princess Diana that she cannot compete because she is needed on the island. When the competition day arrives, the Queen believes Diana is at the castle. The trials are difficult and dangerous so that they can identify the best warrior in all areas. The trial will determine who will try to bring peace to the warring nations. The outcome of the contest is surprising. A glossary explains words readers may be unfamiliar with and provides pronunciations for each. A page of discussion questions and writing prompts extend comprehension of this interesting novel.

    Good reading for young girls!

    I bought this and another Wonder Woman title in the same series as a gift for a 9 year-old girl, and her parents say that she LOVES it and that she's been reading them over and over again! I'm a fan of anything that will get kids to want to read actual books in this day and age of constant tv and video game bombardment! Plus, there are so few strong, positive female superhero role models for young girls these days, and Wonder Woman is one of them!
