I recently bought this book for my 6 year old son, and he loves it.
Book 1: Flying High (step 1 reader)
The birds are going crazy in Gotham. Batman figures out that the Penguin is up to no good. The Penguin has made a machine that is upsetting all the birds, hoping that the Super Friends will remain detracted while he robs the bank. Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Aquaman work together to save the day. Easy text, and great illustrations. My son needed very little help with reading this book.
Book 2: Going Banana's (step 2 reader)
Metropolis is having a big gem show. While setting up the gems, they notice that the big yellow diamond is missing. They can't start the show without it. The Super Friends follow clues to find the yellow diamond. Gorilla Grodd has it and is using it to make a gorilla army. Batman, Robin, Flash, Green Lantern, Superman, and Cyborg, must work together to catch Gorilla Grodd, his magical gorilla army, and find the yellow diamond and return it in time for the gym show. My son did need a little help with some of the words. Bright illustrations.
Book 3 Brain Freeze (step 2 reader)
A new computer is being set up in Metropolis that will control everything. It is called The Brain and it will run the trains, traffic lights, water supply, and the power. Superman is there to turn the Brain on. Mr. Freeze decides the town needs a Brain Freeze and fire his ice cannon which freezes the new computer solid. Everything in the city stops working. Superman, Flash, Cyborg, and Green Lantern work together to help get the city back in control. They then work together to capture Mr. Freeze and unfreeze the Brain. My son needed very little help with reading. Have nice illustration that go along with the storyline.
Book 4: T. Rex Trouble (step 2 reader)
Dinosaur fossils are on parade and Lex Luthor sprays them with super foam, which brings them to life. Flash sees what is going on and calls on his Super Friends for help. While the dinosaurs are scaring the towns people, Lex takes their money and valuables. Batman, Green Lantern, and Superman arrive to help the Flash. The Super Friends capture Lex and then build a home for the dinosaurs to live. My son needed some help with a few of the words. Colorful illustrations.
Book 5: Crime Wave (step 2 reader)
Everyone is lining up to see the world's biggest pearl. Aquaman gets to cut the ribbon to open the show. Superman, Batman, and the people cheer. Water starts to flood in and The Super Friends help the people exit. The Super Friends are then attacked by Black Manta, a shark, an octopus, and couple of eels. He is after the pearl. Aquaman speaks with the sea creatures.He explains to them that stealing is wrong. The sea creatures help The Super Friends capture Black Manta and return the pearl. My son needed some help with reading this story. Nice illustrations to go along with the story.
Even though I found a few of the storylines a little corny, they kept my sons attention and he loves reading them. He is a huge fan of DC Superheros. If it makes him enjoy reading time, it deserves 5 stars.
However, the book binding is really flimsy. We only had it a month or two, and pretty much all the pages fell out in chunks. I think it's better to buy the books that have a single story in each book, which are thinner and bound better, and don't seem to have this problem.
They are short enough to keep my sons attention and have brightly colored pictures. I myself love Batman, so I am more than happy to read these stories to him over and over again when he asks. The only complaint I've ever had about these books is why don't they collect them? When a little boy loves a book and reads it a lot, the single books are so flimsy they don't last long.
My complaints are now down to none.:)
This collects 5 stories: Flying High, Going Bananas, Brain Freeze, T-Rex Trouble and Crime Wave.
Not only is it nice to have all the stories in one location but it is better than paying 3.99 a piece for each single book.
These are great for any little DC fan :)

It's also harder to stick pages back with this type of binding. Hence the 3-star rating for a 5-star storybook
The book contains 'Flying High', 'Going Bananas', 'Brain Freeze', 'T-Rex Trouble' and 'Crime Wave' and at less than £5 this book was a bargain (especially when individually the 5 stories retail at £2.50 each). So if like my son your child loves superheroes this is a must, I am definitely investing in others of the series.
Buying this book works out better value than getting 5 of the books separately (Although I think they are still worth it if you need extras) so this one is definitely a good buy. I have recommended it to friends too - great for any children who are into super heroes to make reading fun
