DC Super Friends: The Missing Batmobile- OPTIONAL


DC Super Friends: The Missing Batmobile, BOARD BOOK. DC Comics, 2016. $10.99. Batman enlists his Super Friends to find his missing batmobile, that The Joker has stolen. Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman, and a few more, all turn up to help solve the crime. Each superhero faces special foes and they all work together to bring The Joker down. This tabbed board book, has a superhero on each tab. There are flaps that open up to different enemies or other superheroes as they search for The Joker. The last page is a full spread of all the superheroes together at The Joker’s Laff Factory, yet he’s nowhere to be seen. In fact, The Joker isn’t illustrated anywhere in the book. I thought it was really odd to not include him, when he is the main villain everyone is fighting against. I was a little disappointed that Wonder Woman didn’t or any other female characters didn’t get more visibility. The whole book is disjointed, but I think the point of the book is to see a lot of superhero characters together, rather than a real story. It is unimpressive. EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL.
