... the back cover of The Big Book of Super Heroes promises to teach readers how to defend themselves against pre-school villains, invent a satisfactory battle cry and decorate secret lairs. Heady stuff, this.
Fans expect nothing less of author Bart King, who created Big Books about spy stuff, gross stuff, girl stuff, mischief and magic — to name a few. King’s ... sense of everything silly and sublime remains intact...
As usual, it is King’s breadth that impresses ... [and makes] this book funny and useful.
