"Riveting...engrossing" - "Bulletin of the Center of Children's Books" on "Bill the Boy Wonder"

The Bulletin of the Center of Children’s Books penned one of the most colorfully written reviews of Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman

Some of my favorite words and phrases in it:


“delightfully laced with ‘bill’ and ‘finger’ puns”

“Engrossing and appropriate as the information in the main text may be for young listeners and readers, a six-page appended author’s note once again saves a heckuva lot of the good stuff for the older readers who will tackle its denser, sparsely photoillustrated prose.”

Among the reviews for this book (as well as all of my others), this is the only known instance of the word “heckuva.”
