Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Profusely illustrated with full color photographs taken directly from the movie, this oversize book is a must have for serious Batman fans. All of the details are here, including a vertical spread describing every aspect of Batman's elaborate costume. Another spread depicts his technical equipment, such as his carefully-crafted batarangs, his life-saving grapnel gun, and his ingenious utility belt. Captions with the photographs of each of the main characters provide valuable background information about their relationship with Batman and their significance in the story. These include facts that either do not appear in the movie or that are lost in the fast action sequences. Most of the text is written in present tense giving a sense of immediacy to this history of how a young multimillionaire decides to devote his life to fighting evil in the world, especially in Gotham. His personal battle to overcome fear in his life is remarkable and believable in the context in which it is presented. Although reference is made to all of the important scenes in the movie, most of the violence is not shown, making this a good choice for children too young to view the film, but old enough to be fascinated by this super hero. 2005, Dorling Kindersley, Ages 8 up.
