DC Super Pets: The Fastest Pet On Earth - J.E. Bright

Released January 2011

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

The Fastest Pet On Earth is one of the new DC Super-Pets chapter books for beginning readers. The books aren't too long, but offer a little more length than the average picture book, 49 pages. Vocabulary is just right. There are tougher words, but a Word Power page in the back gives definitions to help build the reader's vocabulary. Add in bright, colorful illustrations by award-winning illustrator Art Baltazar and you have a book series kids are certain to love.

In The Fastest Pet On Earth, Wonder Woman's pet kangaroo, Jumpa, is asked to protect a rare golden tortoise. A cunning cheetah snatches the tortoise away, but Jumpa has the perfect plan to get it back, a dare that the cheetah will not want to turn down.

The story's kind of a take on the Tortoise and the Hare fable. Children will root for Jumpa as she races around Paradise Island to save the golden tortoise. In the end, there's even a good lesson regarding how cheating never pays off that will have many children giggling.
