95. DC Super Friends #1: Brain Freeze by JE Bright illustrated by Loston Wallace & David Tanguay

DC Super Friends #1: Brain Freeze by JE Bright  illustrated by Loston Wallace & David Tanguay
Published April 2012 Hardie Grant Egmont

From the publisher:

The city of Metropolis shivers when it feels Mr. Freeze's icy touch. But never fear: BATMAN, SUPERMAN, and the rest of the DC Super Friends will melt this coldhearted villain's frosty plans! 

There is really not too much to say about this book, except that I think it and the others in the series will be very popular with young boys.

Although there is only a sentence on each page, they are not actually 'easy' reads because they have words like 'metropolis', 'frozen' and 'celebrate' which might stump beginners who are still reading phonetically.

The 'story' is also very limited.  There is basically an action on one page, and then the reaction on the other ( see second image below). 

I don't mean any of these comments to be criticisms, these books are what they are...Superhero stories for the very young, and like I said, the boys will love them.

Here's some images from the inside of the books:
