This would have been an adorable gift for my son's Super Hero birthday party. Alas, the book arrived ripped with the pages stuck together. It's on its way back to B&N.

Very colorful and fun without the violence and scary bad guys of the real comics. Great for learning some "big" words, as well as, the ABC's.

My 5-year old son loves the crazy illustrations and fantastic descriptions of alphabet superheroes saving the world. The words used can be challenging and sometimes gross (vomiting superheroes and gross goop) but they will keep your kids laughing and learning all the way through to the end -- the Zinger Zings in the Zero Zone. All in all, a fantastic addition to your kids' library!

This is an alphabet book that both parent and tot will enjoy night, after night, after night... Filled with colorful, and funny, illustrations it emphasizes each letter with a specific hero (i.e. D is for Danger Man) and reinforces the lesson with several humorous side actions (i.e. He Duels with Dragons). You'll wish the alphabet was longer!

Great book to combine superheros and the alphabet. A fun way for kids to learn the alphabet and not even realize they are learning!

All the "super heroes" in your life will get a real kick out of this delightful book! What a fun way to teach the alphabet to little boys! (By the way, I initially purchased the "library edition" of this book from Barnes' online before realizing that there is a Barnes & Noble hardcover edition also available from Barnes' online that is identical in all ways - except half the cost of the library edition!!)

My 4-year-old and I are using it (and some other books) as a "friendly" way to introduce and review the letters of the alphabet. He likes the "super heros" and he gets a review of the alphabet by osmosis.

This is very amusing and the alliteration is really making my 3-year-old catch on to sounding out letters. An aquaintance knows the author and gave us a signed copy for our baby's birth...I know he'll treasure it always. I just hope he gets to read it before his big brother wears it out!

Over-sized with great superhero illustrations.

I loved this book! Super Heros ABC is a great mix of the ABC's and superheros. the illustrations were amazing and the texts on each page were creatively written in bubbles. Each letter has a super hero. Kids will love the dramatic comic-style illustrations and big bubble letters. There is all different types of superheros traditional and non traditional all funny and interacting. 5 stars.

This unusual alphabet book is sure to engage the early years set, with its array of unlikely superheros like Bubble-Man, Goo Girl, Sky-Boy, Water Woman, and the Zinger. Colourful, bold illustrations that mimic the comic book format, including speech balloons. Text is versatile and can be read on different levels - easy enough to accommodate new readers, and still difficult enough to challenge more experienced readers.

My nieces are absolutely enthralled by this exciting ABC book, and will correct me if I leave even one tiny word out. The superheroes range from interesting, to gross (the one who vomits on people - ew!) to just weird (the one who is never scared at night).

Humorous ABC book. Great for kids who like super heroes. Full of interesting, imaginary super heroes and descriptive words to describe them and their powers.

This is a really cool book, because they are superheroes in ABC order. The one we don't really like is V; Vomiting Volcano. It vomits on bad guys.

Superhero ABC is an engaging and entertaining way to introduce the alphabet. The characters are memorable and funny, and all of the colors pop right off the page! Grownups will enjoy the authentic comic book-style artwork and the clever puns.

Our little guy first fell in love with this book from the Library just after his second birthday. We checked it out countless times! Finally Santa brought it to him! He was so excited it was all his! With the colorful characters and humorous names it helped to learn his ABC's in no time! A great gift! A favorite in our home, and it will be in yours too!
