This was an interesting book about the creators of Superman. Sadly, the authors of this book decided not to mention that one of the creators, Joe Shuster, (the illustrator) was actually born and raised in Toronto, Canada until he was 9 or 10 years old. His family moved to Cleveland, Ohio in 1924 which is where he met Jerry at school.

I learned about how Superman was created, and it showed if you want to do something, never give up.
