Reviews

Engaging alphabet book whose characters embody the right mix of reassurance, goofiness, and humor. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books


This frothy mix of laughs, giggles and Good Guys zeroes in on its target audience with superhuman accuracy and action. --Kirkus Reviews


Veteran comic-book artist McLeod presents an alphabetical gallery of newly minted superheroes-from Astro-Man, who is Always Alert for An Alien Attack to the Zinger, Zanily Zigzagging through the Zero Zone. A can-do crew of hunky men and buxom women (plus the occasional animal or alien) properly decked out in loudly colored, form-fitting spandex, these crime-fighters bring a range of outrageous abilities to their work. Bubble Man, for instance, Blows Big Bubbles at Bullies, while Rain Man Rains on Random Robbers, Goo Girl shoots Great Gobs of [green] Goo at Gangsters, and, grossest of all, Volcano Man-well, let's not go there. This frothy mix of laughs, giggles and expertly drawn, melodramatically posed Good Guys zeroes in on its target audience with superhuman accuracy and action. (Picture book. 5-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
