DC Books Holiday Gift Guide for 2019

Reading is such an important part of a child's life.  If they can be read to or read themselves they can be transported into another ‘world' where they become a part of the story.  Sometimes it gives them a break from everyday life or an escape from their reality.  I would recommend the books below for this holiday as must-read books for Middle School-aged children.

Title: SUPER SONS: THE POLARSHIELD PROJECT

Details: Jon Kent and Damian Wayne are opposites in every way except one—they are the sons of the World’s Greatest Heroes! To uncover a global conspiracy, this unlikely dynamic duo will need to learn to trust each other and work together to save the Earth. But who is the mysterious Candace? And what secrets does she hold that could be the key to everything? DC Books Holiday Gift Guide for 2019 Must Haves for Under the Tree

The polar ice caps have nearly melted away, causing devastation to coastal cities. Erratic, deadly weather forces everyone inland, tearing families apart. Earth is facing its greatest crisis—and Superman and Batman are nowhere to be found.

From New York Times, best-selling author Ridley Pearson (Kingdom Keepers) and artist Ile Gonzalez comes the first original graphic novel in an epic three-part series that follows the Super Sons of Superman and Batman as they struggle to find their place in a rapidly changing world!

Details: The greatest heroes in the DC Comics universe, the Justice League, answer mail from their biggest fans–kids!–courtesy of Michael Northrop, New York Times best-selling author of TombQuest, and artist Gustavo Duarte.

Does Superman ever make mistakes? What was Wonder Woman's eleventh birthday like? Does Aquaman smell like fish? In this new middle-grade graphic novel, iconic heroes are asked questions both big and small, and when they are not busy saving the world, the Justice League even finds time to respond. Their honest and humorous answers will surprise and delight readers of any age, as it turns out that being a superhero is not too different from being a kid. 

Full of feats, follies, and colorful illustrations, DEAR JUSTICE LEAGUE gives readers the inside scoop into everyday heroics, no matter who wears the cape!

Title: SECRET SPIRAL OF SWAMP KID

Details: Warning! Unless you have express permission from young Russell Weinwright to access his personal journal, do not read any further. This blurb is strictly off-limits! Seriously, we mean it. DC Books Holiday Gift Guide for 2019 Must Haves for Under the Tree

Okay, if you are still with us, here is what we can share: Russell is a middle schooler; he excessively doodles in his spiral notebook; he has two best friends, Charlotte and Preston; he is not-so-great at sports, and he is pond scum. Nicknamed “Swamp Kid” by his classmates, Russell has algae for hair, a tree trunk of a right arm, webbed toes, and parsnip for a thumb. Also, Russell's favorite meal is sunlight. Also, a frog lives in his arm. 

In this notebook, Russell details, in both hilarious text and green-tinted illustrations (complete with ketchup stains!), what it's like to be different, to be comfortable in his own skin (no matter how slimy), to discover his true talents, to avoid the intense stare of Mr. Finneca (his suspicious science teacher), and to find humor in the everyday weird. 

This is THE SECRET SPIRAL OF SWAMP KID by writer and illustrator Kirk Scroggs, and you'll never look at the bayou the same way again.

Title: DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: AT METROPOLIS HIGH

Details: A new era of DC Super Hero Girls begins in DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: AT METROPOLIS HIGH! When Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, and Zatanna are continually late to class because of their crime-fighting, they are sentenced to finding an after-school club for a whole week … or else they'll be suspended!

But finding a club is not as easy as it looks, and when the girls keep finding themselves kicked out of the clubs they like, they must think outside of the box and go outside their comfort zones to avoid suspension. Just when they thought secret identities and balancing school with super-heroics had enough challenges!

DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: AT METROPOLIS HIGH continues to develop the relationships forged throughout the beloved DC Super Hero Girls series. This story is perfect for ages 6-10 and a great entry point into the DC Universe and graphic novels.
