Let the Fun Begin!
Summer reading season @ your library officially opened today, June 22; sort of like shopping after Thanksgiving or opening day of fishing season... but with books!

Though we'll Dig Into Reading this summer, kids ages 6-12 will also be invited to read with a bit of superhero flair! In this spirit, and though we'll highlight many different types of  'superheroes' throughout the summer, here's a quick list of books featuring classic comic book heroes and their arch nemeses:

Batman by Ralph Cosentino -- Batman : Super-Villains Strike by Michael Teitelbaum
Batman vs. Joker adapted by N.T. Raymond
DC Super Heroes Storybook Collection -- Joker on the High Seas by J.E. Bright
Lex Luthor and the Kryptonite Caverns by J. E. Bright -- Superman by Ralph Cosentino -- Superman in the Fifties -- Superman in the Sixties -- Superman in the Seventies -- I Am Wonder Woman by Erin K. Stein
Sword of the Dragon by Laurie Sutton -- Wonder Woman : the Story of an Amazon Princess by Ralph Cosentino -- The Amazing Spider-Man : an Origin Story adapted by Rich Thomas and Jeff Clark
Green Lantern : Fear the Shark by Laurie Sutton -- Guardian of Earth by Michael Dahl
The Light King Strikes by Laurie Sutton -- Savage Sands by J.E. Bright
Flash! Master of Mirrors by Laurie Sutton -- Shell Shocker by Scott Sonneborn

A great and artful send-up of Superman's life from one of our favorite (parental caution) YouTube channels.
