Gr 3-6–In this engaging book, kids write to the Justice League superheroes, asking questions that many readers have probably wondered: Has Superman ever been less than perfect? Does Green Lantern get tired of wearing the same colors all the time? Does Aquaman smell like fish? The heroes thoughtfully consider these big and small queries, reflect on their experiences, and come up with answers that are sometimes honest and sometimes diplomatic. In several instances, the kids’ lives change for the better after the exchange with their hero. Wonder Woman attends her fan’s birthday party, while a boy is overprepared for his first day in a new school after taking Batman’s advice. This fun premise is taken to a whole new level by Duarte’s colorful, adorable artwork, which buzzes with humor and energy.
VERDICT “Dear Abby” meets the DC universe. Young superhero fans and reluctant readers will devour this sweet and funny graphic novel
