SuperHero ABC is Bob's first children's book. Ostensibly a book to teach children the alphabet, SuperHero ABC is actually a fun way to increase the vocabulary of children between the ages of 4 and 8. Bob takes each letter of the alphabet and creates a superhero or super team for that letter. For instance, the letter "A" gives us "Astro-Man." As the text reads, "Astro-Man is Always Alert for An Alien Attack."
It goes on like that for the entire alphabet as Bob uses a bevy ("B" is for Bubble-Man) of costumed heroes in delightful bursts of word play and mouths full of alliteration. He gives us such novel and zany characters as "Goo Girl" for "G," the three-eyed alien, "Jumping Jack" for "J," and "The Volcano" for "V," who "Vomits on Villains." The book also marks the first appearance of star-in-the making "Sky-Boy." "T" gives us "The Terrific Three."
Bob is an accomplished illustrator, and the cartoon art here will remind readers of the art style of Disney/Pixar's "The Incredibles." I heartily recommend this to anyone who wants to give a boy or a girl an alphabet-vocabulary book because children do like superheroes - look at the success of such movie franchises as "Batman," "Spider-Man," "the X-Men," and even "The Incredibles."
"Bb - Bubble-Man blows Big Bubbles at Bullies. He's Bald! He wears Boots! He's a Bad Boy! "

I realize that the letter v is tricky for superheroes, but.... Vomits on villains? The lovely cartoon accompanying that one is one I could really have done without....Published 11 months ago by Sci-Fi Shorts Reader
