This new early-chapter-book series explains how Superman acquired specific souvenirs housed in his Fortress of Solitude. These books capitalize on superhero fandom, highlighting Superman's lonely exceptionalism and tragic past. Despite an unappealing format, with particularly strange spacing and small font, the series targets struggling readers using limited texts and serviceable digital illustrations. Each book includes discussion questions and writing prompts. Glos.
