Ever wonder how Superman came to be?? Did you know that TWO men thought him up?? Did you know they scrimped and saved during the Great Depression to make their idea a reality?? If not - (or even if you did) - you NEED to read this one! Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman by Marc Tyler Nobleman and illustrated by Ross MacDonald is just super! I can see it being a hit with boys of ALL ages - ok, girls may enjoy it too - but this is just a "must" for boys especially. (And those are hard to come by!!) Loved it and the illustrations are also wonderful - they add that "comic book" feel that adds to the credibility of the story.
