Twenty-six original superheroes are featured in an outrageously funny alphabet book that has appeal far beyond the ABC years. A stro-man is “Always Alert for An Alien Attack.” G oo Girl “shoots Great Gobs of Goo at Gangsters.” P owder Pup “Protects Pets from the Pound.” The V olcano “Vomits on Villains.” Additional commentaries about each of the twenty-six fighters of crime and injustice provide further letter-specific descriptions of their many attributes (“He’s Vile! He’s Valiant! It’s Very gross!”). In fine comic book form, author/illustrator Bob McLeod has created a witty children’s book that offers exciting possibilities for classroom use. (Ages 5–10)
