What can I say? Brad Meltzer does it again. Following the story of Superman, children learn not only about him as a character but the more important lessons on morality. Written with great care so that children can understand, it is easy to follow for children of differing ages. The illustrations by Christopher Eliopoulos keep with the series standard and are always great. Love the representation of the disabled and varying ethnicities when representing children! Seriously, a can't miss book!
