10The hidden undersea city of Atlantis and the ocean are in trouble in J.E. Bright’s book Heroes of the High Seas. When King Aquaman needs a lift to investigate a strange whirlpool, he calls on his super powered seahorse Storm! With plenty of horsepower in his tail and Ark, the seal and Topo, the octopus by his side, Storm must battle against Aquaman’s worst enemy, Black Manta and her two huge manta rays, Misty and Sneezers. Art Baltazar, illustrator for the DC Super-Pets series, uses color and humor in his drawings. Readers will learn how to use a Table of Contents and a dictionary of words used throughout the story in a section called Word Power. If you want to introduce your child to the world of DC comics, this is a great place to start.
