Bat-Mite's Big Blunder

GOTHAM'S greatest super-villains escape from ARKHAM ASYLUM, and BATMAN must quickly wrangle up the rebel rogues. When only one remains at large, the DARK KNIGHT gets an extra hand from his biggest, little fan — the BAT-MITE, a mischievous imp from another dimension. Unfortunately, the RIDDLER isn't the easiest crook to catch. But if BAT-MITE can't crack the criminal cluemaster, he might end up hurting, instead of helping, his favorite hero.

"This review is courtesy of our network site Capstone Kids is putting out four new titles under their Batman line this Spring! Legions of Gotham was given a sneak peek at these great new books. I have to say that anyone intelligent enough to reach back and continue making Timm-verse Batman products is ok in our book! I think there are droves of fans that are missing these glory days already with this Brave and the Bold nonsense out there. These new books are great fun and they feature some comic writers we all know and love, including friends of the site - Robert Greenberger and Matthew K. Manning. The new titles include Killer Croc Hunter, Robin’s First Flight, Two-Face’s Double Take and Bat-Mite’s big Blunder. If you’re not familiar with these titles, the format is a great story featuring all bat-characters, typically by a well-known writer in the community, and artwork every few pages. We highly recommend these. They’re available in both hardcover library binding (which I recommend for collectors) for about $19 each and softcover for about $6." - Book Legion

"Pros: Popular characters, fast-moving plot, good format for young readers, nice pictures and "extras." Cons: Many young readers won't know who Bat-Mite is... The Bottom Line: Batman fights crime and illiteracy in this early reader. My boys love superheroes. Batman is one at the top of their list, of course, so when I found this series of easy readers from Stone Arch Books, we started working our way through them. This is the third book we've read in the series, Bat-Mite's Big Blunder. Bat-Mite was a Batman sidekick created for the 1970's cartoon, "The New Adventures of Batman and Robin." A magical imp from another dimension, Bat-Mite is a huge fan of Batman, but his well-meaning "assistance" frequently turn into disasters for the Dynamic Duo. And his voice? Super annoying. Despite that, when I was a kid, I loved Bat-Mite. And my boys, thanks to DVD, love him too. So Paul Kupperberg's Bat-Mite's Big Blunder was a hit with them. The plot is basically that Batman's villains have escaped from Arkham Asylum (again), and Batman has rounded them all up except for the Riddler. The Riddler and Bat-Mite end up teaming up, with the imp giving Edward Nygma an edge in several crimes. They stay one step ahead of Batman, the Riddler for profit (and psychosis) and Bat-Mite because he thinks this is all fun for Batman. The format of the book is a slim paperback book with five chapters, each about ten pages long. Full page, full color illustrations appear roughly every five pages throughout the book. The pictures by Gregg Schigiel and Lee Loughridge are in the style of Batman: The Animated Series, and are paced to give the reader a break, but also tie in directly to the text. The end of the book has several pages of "bonus features," including a Gotham City Police Department profile on Bat-Mite, a glossary, and discussion questions and writing prompts. This was a fun book, and whether your young children know who Bat-Mite is or not, if they like Batman, they'd like this book. The complicated sentences and "big words" would make this appropriate for a 2nd or 3rd grader--it was too advanced for my 6 year old, but my 8 year old loved it." -
