Amethyst Daydreams blog - Megan

"This book is great! I read it together with my kids and they had a great time with it! They loved that it included some of their favorite heroes and pets from Super-Pets, Tiny Titans and all the DC Comics. The art is typical of Art Baltazar's work - super fun and cute! There are all kinds of cool backstories for the pets and even a section describing the comics cannon origins of some of the characters. I think any child or adult would love to read this fun book!" - Amethyst Daydreams blog

Raven Heather's Kingdom blog - Heather Burke

"This graphic novel is geared for ages 6-8; however this is a must have for any DC comics enthusiast. . . .There is an entire series of chapter books staring the super pets. This works as a guide or a companion book with the chapter books." - Raven Heather's Kingdom blog

San Francisco Book Review - Avery, Age 9

"The cool thing is each super pet has their own full-sized page in the book that lists their stats like favorite food, secret bio, who their super hero owner is, and who their allies and foes are. By the end of the book I was wondering why this hasn’t been made into a game yet. I know it would be a great companion for kids to use to figure out what animals they need to collect and how they would compete against another super pet." - San Francisco Book Review

Robot 6, Comic Book Resources - J. Caleb Mozzocco

"At the risk of overstating things, I may have just read the single greatest book of all time, Capstone’s DC Super-Pets Character Encyclopedia, a compendium of more than 200 heroic and villainous pets, compiled mainly from the line of Art Baltazar-illustrated chapter books for young readers." - Robot 6, Comic Book Resources

The Fairview Review blog - Suzanne

"This is a fun collection of 200 super-pets (both hero and villain) with all the information you would like to know about them. I was pretty confident that I knew my super heroes, but I found out about pets I had never heard of before. . . .With so many super characters to keep track of, this is a handy guide for any fan." - The Fairview Review blog

Booklist - Sarah Hunter

"From the table of contents, which features the tiny face of each pet instead of its name, to the splashy endpapers squeezing the more than 200 pets into a group portrait, Korté and Baltazar’s (Superman Family Adventures, 2013) compendium of all things superpet is a visual feast of bright colors, jauntily exaggerated lines, and cheerfully cute faces. . . .Peppered with fun facts, jokes, and handy guides to power rings and the different colors of kryptonite, this browsable handbook is a treasure trove for burgeoning superhero lovers." - Booklist

EarlyWord Kids blog - Lisa Von Drasek

"Stunned is the only word that can describe my reaction to the DC Superpets! Character Encyclopedia by Steve Korté illustrated by Art Baltazar. . . .Every full color page contains a delightful discovery of comic book heroes and their pets. It opens with a crowd shot of DC heroes with their pets — that’s 331 figures to identify. No worries, there is a key on the last page." - EarlyWord Kids blog

Unshelved Book Club - Gene Ambaum

"The thing I really love about Picture Window’s DC Super-Pets books is Baltazar’s character designs and drawings, and this book is full of both." - Unshelved Book Club

Kid Lit Reviews blog - Sue Morris

"What I like about the DC Super-Pets Character Encyclopedia is how easy it is to find a super-pet. There is a picture index, a text index, size charts, and a full spread super-pet group illustration in the front of the book. In the back is a blank group image with numbers indicating what super-pet is where in the front group image. . . .If you or your child likes Saturday morning cartoons or live to watch the Cartoon Network, you will enjoy turning off the television and reading this encyclopedia." - Kid Lit Reviews blog
