My son and I have enjoyed writer and illustrator Ralph Cosentino's Superman: The Story of the Man of Steel and Batman: The Story of the Dark Knight for some time. As such, we've eagerly awaited the release of Cosentino's third title in the series, Wonder Woman: The Story of the Amazon Princess. Cosentino comes through terrifically, delving into her origin story and the rogues gallery of her most infamous villains. I particularly liked the references to Greek mythology, both in the child-friendly text and in the colorful illustrations. Young readers and adults, too, will enjoy this telling of the Wonder Woman story.

This whole series is great - but I'm particularly thrilled to have a super hero book to share with my boys - about a Woman. My four year old boy is besotted with her, asks for the book over and over and over and over... I'm hoping there will be another in this series from Ralph Cosentino soon.

Great introduction to Wonder Woman for my four and five year old kids. Wonder Woman explains where she came from, how she became Wonder Woman and we learn about a few of her enemies. The format is written more like a picture book than a comic book, which I imagine is easier for little kids to follow than a typical comic book format, but the illustrations still have a comic book feel to them.

My 4yo is really into Wonder Woman these days, which is unfortunate because there aren't a lot of books with her that are age-appropriate. This origin story fills an interesting niche: harkening back to the golden age comics artistry while presenting Diana in a kid-friendly way. Substantively it's almost identical to I Am Wonder Woman, but with a really nice hardcover that lends itself exceptionally to gifting.

My daughters 5 and 2 are mesmerized by this book.

I've wanted to introduce them to super heroes for awhile, in hopes that they skip Barbie over. And it's worked with the help of your book.

The illustrations are very accessible and fun (reminds me of the Craig McCracken style) and the story is right where it needs to be - hopeful, not scary, yet demonstrates her enormous power and motivation. I also appreciate that WW is drawn with a normal body and not a 22-inch waist and 38-inch bust.

I hope they do more with female supers. Ralph Cosentino seems to have a great knack for it and this book shows he knows and loves the character.

My oldest daughter loves Batgirl (mainly because her best friend is into Batman), but there are no suitable books for her. :( Maybe he can pitch a Batgirl of Burnside kids' book to DC. We'd buy it instantly and I would buy extras for all the girls who need to know they can be heroes, too!

This book is greatly beloved and will likely bring a lifetime of influence.

I bought this for my 5 yr old daughter after "superhero fever" hit our house by way of our 3 yr old son. They had been delighting in the typical ones together, but giving my daughter a story about a female superhero was more meaningful to her than I would have ever believed. The story is brisk and a decent intro into who Wonder Woman is, told in comic book styling. She especially adored the fact that this superhero started out as a princess! They both loved it -- and I found her sleeping with it under her pillow afterwards. :-)

Wonder Woman: The Story of the Amazon Princess is a great book aimed at younger audiences. If you don't know much about Wonder Woman or her history, then this tells the story in a way that anyone, child or adult, can understand. It highlights her origin: the creation from clay, the gifts from the Gods, and the contest held to become the champion of Themyscira. Unfortunately, these pages take up the majority of the book, leaving very little for "present-day" Wonder Woman. Although, we do get to see her Diana Prince alter-ego, as well as her more memorable villains like Cheetah and Silver Swan, all depicted in the great art of Ralph Cosentino. Honestly, that was the biggest selling point for me: the art.

For a wonderful addition to your library, definitely pick up this book! It's a must-have for any Wonder Woman fan or just a casual fan who wants to learn her origin.

My one year old daughter loves having this book read to her. The story is a bit disjointed - more of a description of Wonder Woman's back story and a couple examples of her battles and good deeds than a narrative. The images are bright and vibrant. My only complaint is that WW is a quite hourglass shaped. It would have been nice to have the images portray her a bit less Barbie-proportioned, but at least she is strong. The book is a great addition to our library.
