Finally, an alphabet book that young caped crusaders can call their own. Comic-book illustrator McLeod treats kids to 26 original characters, from Astro-Man to the Zinger, rendered in bold images with vivid colors. This title has plenty to amuse young readers, and ranks high on the gross-out scale with characters such as "The Odor Officer" and "Goo Girl." Each page highlights one letter used repeatedly. Really Recommended for Readers ages 4-7.
