Overview

AXEL WALKER, the crazy TRICKSTER, likes toys and gimmicks. And this time he’s making mischief using things no one can see. Whether it’s oxygen, air pressure, or invisible gas, the TRICKSTER is bubbling over with evil schemes. Only the FLASH can outwit the nefarious knave. But soon, WALKER traps FLASH within a special bubble, a gigantic glass sphere free of friction. Without friction enabling him to move, the FLASH’s super-speed doesn’t get him anywhere. And the oxygen inside the bubble is quickly running out!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
The Trickster is seething with jealousy. He despises Central City's super hero, the Flash. In an effort to gain fame, the Trickster begins playing deadly practical jokes on the citizens of Central City. When the Trickster attempts to pull the oxygen from the air, the Flash tries to stop him. Unfortunately, the Flash's efforts fail and he wakes to find himself trapped in a huge bubble that is floating in a room filled with poisonous gas. The Flash can move faster than any human but how can his speed help him now? This action packed book is not a graphic novel. Instead, it is a regular chapter book with one to two color illustrations per chapter. Still, it will appeal to young readers who are fans of the super hero genre. The vocabulary may be challenging for these younger readers and although there is a glossary, most readers will not see it until after they have finished the book. This book is part of the "Super DC Heroes" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
