Its hard to believe it has been nearly 75 years since Batman first appeared in Detective Comics. The Cape Crusader has been entertaining fans for generations with films, live-action series and animated series. With children fascinated with comic book heroes, Stone Arch Books has released a line of chapter books involving DC superheroes.

The newest chapter book release is titled Batman: Catwoman's Nine Lives which features 12 unique comic book style pages in this intriguing adventure.

It all starts with Catwoman stealing a cat statue, only to run into the Penguin, who makes an offer she can't refuse - to steal the Ventriloquist's dummy, Scarface in exchange for cash. It seems like a great offer that is until Catwoman runs into Batman.

The Penguin plans on using Scarface as leverage; to force Ventriloquist and his gang to leave Gotham City forever, but the table quickly turns and Ventriloquist may have the upper hand.

Kids will have fun reading this exciting five-chapter Batman adventure that is full of twists-and-turns around every page. Batman: Catwoman's Nine Lives is cleverly written with amazing illustrations. At the retail price of $5.95, this chapter book will make a great buy. Overall, I enjoyed reading Batman: Catwoman's Nine Lives and I recommend it to other Batman fans, young and old.
