Batman is fighting an evil villain named Shriek who uses sound to commit crimes. While he and Batman are fighting, a little deaf boy gets unknowingly caught in the middle but likes that he can "hear" the vibrations of the sounds that Shriek is making. Later Batman finds out that Shriek is deaf also and later when they are fighting again, the little deaf boy is there and almost gets crushed by some falling rocks but Shriek saves him, causing him to get caught. Batman tries to persuade Shriek in jail to use his knowledge of sound to help the little boy hear and in the end, Shriek makes the boy a hearing aid and he can finally hear his dog bark again.

This was a surprisingly touching Batman story. I'm guessing my sister has it because she is planning to get her masters in special ed.

I would offer this book to a hearing impaired student who might be able to relate to the characters.
