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.
