A young Supergirl fan faces her most elusive adversary; sleep! As darkness falls, a young girl attempts to catch some Z's while DC Comics' SUPERGIRL tracks down an elusive enemy. With super hero traits, like BRAVERY, PATIENCE, and PERSISTENCE, they'll both turn sleepless nights into sweet success and sweet dreams. Along with Omar Lozano's action-packed art, bestselling author Michael Dahl (Bedtime for Batman and Good Morning, Superman) delivers an imaginative bedtime book for fangirls and fanboys alike. 

My Thoughts: 
This is the perfect bedtime story book for all those budding little superheroes out there. Very much like Michael Dahl's other DC superhero picture books, Sweet Dreams, Supergirl is a fun and brightly illustrated read full of action and excitement. It's a great reminder that even superheroes have to wind down at the end of a long, action-filled day. 

The full page illustrations feature both Supergirl (as well as a few of her super friends) and a little girl who is just as super. It contrasts the hardships of the day with getting ready for bed in a comic book style that is lots of fun. 

I especially loved that the book on her nightstand and that her mother reads to her at night is so obviously The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. It's one of my favorites so it stood out, though I have no idea what it has to do with superheroes. 

Want something similar with male heroes? Bedtime for Batman and Good Morning, Superman may do the trick! 

Be sure to check out my review of Be A Star, Wonder Woman by Michael Dahl as well!
