Format: Paperback
Two, two, two books in one! The blue side ("Heroes United") is an overview of the DC Super Friends toy line characters (Batman, Aquaman, Superman, Green Lantern, and the Flash). The flip side ("Attack of the Robot") does a good job of introducing basic conflict into the SuperFriends universe, with Lex Luthor inventing a giant robot with a kryptonite hand to menace Superman. The thing is, he's not just fighting Supes, he's fighting the whole team and teamwork always wins. Good morals, art in the style of the toy line, and a nice streamlined story. Bonus points for the little stand-up figures in the middle of the book for solo play. I recommend lamination for those bad boys--they're kind of flimsy. The only bad thing is the boys club mentality; despite DC Comics' push for the "Trinity" of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, the Amazon is nowhere to be found. I hope she shows up soon--my son actually complained.

Format: Paperback
My son already had the Super Friends action figures, but this little double-sided book made a perfect introduction to the iconic DC super heroes. One side of the book features the "Heroes United" story and the other featured "Attack of the Robot", with a section in the middle containing punch-out mini figures of the main characters.

"Heroes United" is basically a roll call of the five main characters. Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, the Flash and Aquaman are all given a 1-page introduction with a couple of closing pages showing them working together as a team. I have to question DC's decision to exclude Wonder Woman from this book/toy line, as she would have given it some crossover appeal with girls. I'm glad they at least made an effort towards diversity by including the African-American character John Stewart as Green Lantern though.

"Attack of the Robot" reads more like a traditional superhero story, and is very similar to the classic Super Friends cartoons, especially in terms of corny dialogue. Superman is trapped by Lex Luthor's robot, and Batman calls the Super Friends in to rescue him. It's a simple tale emphasizing teamwork and friendship, and the violence is kept to a minimum.

The cutout figures in the middle are a neat addition, but were lost and/or destroyed within a day or two. The book, on the other hand, has been a bedside favorite of my son's for the past year.

The purpose of this purchase was to give my grandson a book he actually wanted to read. He loves this book and all the easy to read superhero books. He recited the titles of all the books I bought for him and told me how much he liked them. If you have a little one who finds books boring, the answer may be to find books he or she is interested in. My grandson (aged 7) really loves these books and enjoys reading them.
Batman Classic: Meet the Super Heroes: With Superman and Wonder Woman (I Can Read Book 2) Not wanting to be sexist but I think this particular series might be especially appropriate for boys.

This was a good book for my son who is into superheros. My only small complaint is the separation between the two books is a bit awkward once you remove the game pieces from the book.

This book is pretty neat - it can be read from the front or back (there are 2 stories). There are even cardboard punch-outs of all of the superheroes which allows for an interactive story time. Great price, too!

If you have a young superhero fan, this 2 in 1 book is a great introduction. The stories focus on the teamwork and friendship without voilence or scary situations. My 3 year old son loves the robot story. In fact, the story has inspired many hours of creative and imaginative play. The writing is a bit more complex than some of First Reader type books, so it might appeal to a wider age range of kids.

This book is on heavy rotation right now for my 3 1/2 yo son. The story is not too strange or violent. Strong on virtue and teamwork. Great illustrations. In other words, perfect! I was going to buy about five more and, alas, they don't exist!
