Super Reads With Superheroes

Good Afternoon!

I wanted to take a few minutes and Highlight a New Series coming from Scholastic. This is the “Backstories” series (Ages8-12) that currently has 3 books featuring your favorite DC Characters! Brooke Shearouse wrote the article below on April 1st 2016, but we needed to give it a few days to make sure it was not some cruel joke.

Superheroes are a mainstay in pop culture—look no further than the newest blockbuster Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice in theaters now. From movies to TV shows to clothing to jewelry, you can find your favorite crime fighters just about everywhere. Including some great books! Check out the list of great new superhero reads from Scholastic below.Backstories

Backstories series (Ages 8–12): Backstories is a new series of “biographies” featuring exciting and engaging fictional characters. Launching the series are three titles from DC Comics. In the biographies—complete with black-and-white illustrations, timelines, and fact boxes—young readers will delight in learning the complete history of their favorite fictional figures.

  • Batman: Gotham City’s Guardian will answer questions such as: What was Bruce Wayne’s childhood like? Why does he dress up like a bat? What compels him to protect Gotham City? How did he become the world’s greatest detective?
  • Superman: The Man of Tomorrow will give readers insight into: How did a child from another planet named Kal-El become farm boy Clark Kent? What happened to his planet and family? What powers does he possess and what are his weaknesses?
  • Wonder Woman: Amazon Warrior tells readers: Who is Wonder Woman? How did she become a powerful Super Hero? What abilities does she use to fight for what is right?

Batman’s Dark Secret (Ages 5–7) by Kelley Puckett, illustrated by Jon J Muth: Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author/artist Jon J Muth brings to life the mystery of how Bruce Wayne became Batman in collaboration with comic book writer Kelley Puckett. One day, a lonely orphan named Bruce Wayne finds himself in a dangerous situation. He defends himself against a monster bat—and he wins. From that time on, he is determined to fight evil. He becomes…Batman!

Study Hall of Justice (DC Comics: Secret Hero Society #1) (Ages 8–12) by Derek Fridolfs, illustrated by Dustin Nguyen: From the Eisner-nominated team behind Batman Lil’ Gotham, the brand new Secret Hero Society series takes readers to the halls of Ducard Academy in Gotham City, where a young Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman start their very own Junior Detective Agency. Using comics, journal entries, and doodles to reimagine Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman as three students in the same school, these young superheroes will try their best to solve their case. But just because you’re faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, or an Amazonian princess, it doesn’t mean you get to stay up past eleven.

As you may already know, we are Huge Superhero Fans here at Kids Prize Pack and can’t wait to see what other titles this series comes out with. It would be pretty safe to say that you may find these in a future Kids Prize Pack coming your way!
