{Synopsis} – Being the new kid at school is tough, especially when your school is called Ducard Academy and your name is Bruce Wayne. There’s a gang of jokers roaming the halls, a muscle-headed kid named Bane wants to beat you up, and your guidance counselor Hugo Strange seems really, well, strange.

This inventive novel follows young Bruce Wayne and his friends Clark (Superman) and Diana (Wonder Woman) as they start a Junior Detective Agency to investigate their teachers and find out what’s going on behind closed doors at Ducard Academy, all before recess.

This all-new story presents a twist on the idea of junior sleuths, using comics, journal entries, and doodles to reimagine Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman as three students in the same school. They’ll try their best to solve their case, but just because you’re faster than a speeding bullet or more powerful than a locomotive, it doesn’t mean you get to stay up past eleven.

{My thoughts} – My daughter had bought this book at the school fair, so of course I wanted to read it. She’d read it first and said that it was really good. I’d have to concur. It is a nice short read.

I enjoyed seeing Batman, Superman and other characters as middle schoolers. It was entertaining to read and the way that the book was composed was original. I liked how it showed the diary entries, school reports and of course the comics. It was a well thought out presentation for a story.

I am a fan of short little mystery like books and this one didn’t disappoint me. The added bonus was that it had incredible illustrations to go along with the words on the pages.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys comics. I am certain that anyone who does will enjoy reading it as much as my daughter and I did.
