Mini Review: Bedtime for Batman - Written by Michael Dahl & Illustrated by Ethen Beavers

Bedtime for Batman - Written by Michael Dahl & Illustrated by Ethen Beavers

When a dark night comes to the big city, one little super hero prepares for a great adventure . . . bedtime! He dons his pajama uniform, speeds upstairs, cleans up the nightly grime, and keeps watch from his towering bunk bed. Written by award-winning author Michael Dahl (Goodnight Baseball, Goodnight Football, and Goodnight Hockey) and illustrated by Ethen Beavers (DC Super Friends), this bedtime tale will have Batman fans, young and old, delighting in their nightly routines. Bedtime for Batman is the perfect way to say goodnight to your little Dark Knight.

Rating: 4 Stars

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a really cute book. It had great art and included illustrations of all of my favorite DC characters: Harley Quinn, the Joker, etc.

There wasn't really a story, per se, but this might be just the thing to read to a little one that's being difficult at bedtime. There's almost a side by side comparison of Batman having his adventure and the little boy getting ready for bed. Dreams can contain big adventures, maybe even one where you're the Caped Crusader? :)

All in all it's a pleasant bedtime story, though I think the parents (especially comic book fan parents), will get more of a kick out of it than the kids who might not know all the characters yet.

All pictures, quotes, and videos belong to their respective owners. I use them here solely for the purpose of review and commentary.
