Acquired: Received a review copy from Capstone Publishing.

Reason for Reading: My son loves these books and I always read them first before handing them over for bedtime story time. They are above his reading level yet.

Well I was excited as a little kid that Green Lantern and The Flash have been added to this series and couldn't wait to start reading. As usual the illustrations are DC Comics quality and there are usually two per chapter.  An exciting superhero story which pits the Flash against Mirror Master who has duplicates of himself robbing many of Central Cities banks, jewelry stores and museums.  When the clones disappear through a plate glass window the Flash follows them and discovers himself in an alternate world where Mirror Master has taken control and set himself up as king of the empire.  To beat Mirror Master and save his own world from him, the Flash must first save the princess and return her kingdom to her.  Great superhero action.  Purely plot driven, it will keep young readers riveted.
