Material: hard cover

Summary: Need to know how Dr. Robert Bruce Banner became the Incredible Hulk? Learn about Storm's arch enemies. This compact book gives you the low-down on Marvel superheroes the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Storm, The Incredible Hulk, and Wolverine ... and the evil forces that challenge them. This is a series of bios of several superheroes and their enemies.

Type of Reading: family reading, independent reading, read aloud book, interactive reading

Recommended Age: read together: 5 to 8; read yourself: 6 to 9

Interest Level: 5 to 9

Age of Child: Started reading with 5½-year-old child.

Young Reader Reaction: Our child has been poring over the pages for weeks. The format, the colors, and the stories are all intriguing to her. The book has traveled the house and been a must-have companion each night before bed.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a fun book. The fold-out pages offer pre-readers something to do, and the bios are helpful for those who may not be familiar with superhero history.

Pros: The book is presented simply enough to engage pre- and young readers, but has content valuable to a more sophisticated audience, too.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow, at least. And be prepared to read the bios A LOT!


Educational Themes: This one is a straight-up picture book. Although it presents the forces of good and evil, there isn't much to build on for a 'discussion.'

Literary Categories: Fiction - picture book, comics, biography
