I love how this author compared the life of this little boy and Batman. You can tell how much this boy loves this superhero. As this young child makes his way into bed, the author compares the young boy’s bedtime routines to the life of Batman. It is a very imaginative and a fun way to show a child that they can be a superhero also. The young boy starts his bedtime routine by getting a signal that it’s time for bed from his father (his father points to the clock) just like Batman gets the Bat signal in the sky. The boy begins by walking up the stairs where he gets his bat cape. When Batman gets his signal, he must prepare by changing his clothes, donning his bat cape and preparing his Batmobile. The boy knows that his goldfish depend on him just like Batman knows that other people depend on him, the boy and Batman have many similarities. As the book continues, we read about many other connections that the two superheroes have. Situated on opposing pages, I liked that I was able to see how these connections were made and how they matched up. This was a cartoon book with bright colored pages with sharp edges in color. There were not that many words on each page which would make it a good book for many children. I think that this book is a great read for young Batman readers.

Superhero-loving children (and adults) will really enjoy this adorable book. It shows a little boy getting ready for bed - imaging himself as Batman - along side Batman fighting bad guys in Gotham. The text is simple, but the parallels between the two characters are perfect. Batman is cleaning up the city, while the little boy is taking a bath and brushing his teeth. The little boy is feeding his fish, while Batman is rescuing people. The illustrations are perfect. They portray Batman in the classic 1950s style. And there is so much imagination and fun in the drawings of the young boy. It's the perfect balance of storytelling through pictures and words. This book is just so sweet. Because it's a going to bed book, it's probably best for ages 3-5.

My son (3.5) was incredibly happy to see Batman, and the kid who was "trying to be" Batman. :) Each scene of this juxtaposes part of a kid's bedtime ritual with what Batman does at night. The Bat signal and Dad pointing at the clock, getting dressed in pajamas (Batman PJs, of course, with cape) and Bruce Wayne getting into his batsuit. Very clever idea! The text is simple, but still written well to caption each scene. The illustrations are very fitting and the "real world" and Batman's world are tied together wonderfully. I received a digital ARC from the publisher through for an honest, unbiased review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is my 100% own.
