Here's a book parents and children will enjoy -- together and separately. It's a burlesque on comic books that manages to be hilarious even with the library-card advice ending. Sam, it seems was a regular fellow but he came down with comic bookitis -- a common disease. The monster, Superdroop, appeared and he and Sam went on some fiercely boring adventures -- Rhett Race who righted all wrong, villainous Punkinhead, Mouse-Mouth Macaroni, stooges, black limousines, bombs, guns and phoney ammunition galore: there is a priceless adventure with a super cowboy in High Wind Canyon country which undoes Tom Mix types forever, and a malicious chase through the "funny" comics with a few mean and nasty practical joker characters. In fact, any peeve you have ever had you will find here and everyone will be relieved to end up safely in the public library. Public libraries will naturally love it, parents will love it and squirm a bit at the criticism they'll meet, and young people will never find comic books quite as good again. Good fun plus Munro Leaf's drawings -- and morals. Definitely for older reading ages too. Mastex over boards. Not Singer sewed.
