The superheroes from the Justice League are back, and this time they have sea creatures to handle. Black Mantis wants to steal the huge pearl from a new exhibit, so he brings an octopus, shark, and electric eels to attack the super friends. Unfortunately, he forgot that Aquaman can communicate with ocean animals. In no time, Aquaman has the octopus turned against the villain, and Superman and Batman help him finish the job.

My review for this book is a close mirror to the other beginning reader Super Friends book. The author is too concerned with using the right vocabulary words to write with a natural sounding syntax. The plot has a lot of action, but no tension. Unfortunately, this book relies on the popularity of its characters to compensate for the mediocre writing. The trick does work; my girls love the Justice League, and they like these books. It doesn't matter how dull the story, they just want to see their heroes in action. For this interest factor, and the fact that it is a simple read for easy readers, I give these books a just below average rating. ( )
