It?s a bird! It?s a plane! It?s Superman!

All children love Superman, but until now, there hasn?t been a book written and illustrated specifically for the youngest fans of the earth?s greatest superhero. Ralph Cosentino?s Superman: The Story of the Man of Steel tells the tale of the caped crime fighter?s amazing journey from the planet Krypton to the town of Smallville, Kansas, to the big city of Metropolis. There he lives a double life as Clark Kent, mild-mannered journalist, and Superman, protector of humanity.

Told in simple, child-friendly language and illustrated with bright, bold artwork inspired by the originals, Superman is the perfect introduction to this beloved American icon.

About the Author:

Ralph Cosentino is a talented author, illustrator, and designer.A line of toys inspired by his books is available through his company, U.F.O. Toys. He lives in North Ohio.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–3—Cosentino introduces young readers to the iconic superhero, his origin story, and key characters and villains. Superman chronicles his story, beginning when he was an infant named Kal-El living on Krypton. Sent away on a rocket ship by his parents to escape the exploding planet, he eventually landed in Smallville, KS, where he was discovered by the Kent family and renamed Clark. It wasn't long before his abilities, normal on Krypton, proved to be exceptional on Earth. Origins out of the way, Superman's greatest enemies are presented in a series of spreads. The book concludes with the superhero's vow to protect Earth and help those in need. The simplified presentation and basic text are well suited to early readers. Bold illustrations serviceably support the text; single pictures often take up an entire page or spread. Page layout is large, clear, and uncluttered. Certain to draw interest from reluctant readers, this book will serve as a capable entry point to the Superman universe.—Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, MI
